“The Decision” by Alexandra Mars © 2023.
The black SUV sat there again. At random times throughout the day, the same vehicle always returned. The third time this week, parked across the street from my home, avoiding my security cameras. Why? Should I call the police and become the crazy neighborhood “Karen”?
Sweat dripped from my brow. I didn’t want attention on myself. I couldn’t risk blowing my cover as my fingers squeezed the grip of my pistol. Paranoia. Is a terrible omen. Remembering, underneath my bed, my go-bag and money were ready. Flight or fight flooded my mind.
Taking a deep breath, I would fight.
