Good morning! It’s finally Friday and unfortnately I have to work all weekend. But…I did have a wonderful day yesterday with my friend Rachel. We drove up to Yosemite for the day which was absolutely wonderful! You can check out some pictures on my Instagram!
And we continue on our story of Zac and Melanie. I won’t make you wait much longer so I hope you enjoy this Adventure story!
To the man of my dreams
You need to break up with that blonde chick. She is not the one you love. I am the only one who loves you. I am the only one who will marry you. You will not understand the amount of hatred I feel toward that chick. Break up with her immediately so we can finally be together. You and I are meant to be. If you do not break up with her, I will kill her.
“Dude…how could you say that Breaking Bad is a bad show? It was one of the best of it’s time. Seriously!”
Zac shook his head. “Damian we can all have our own opinions. I didn’t like Breaking Bad, you don’t like NCIS. See I’m not mad at you for not liking NCIS. It’s your opinion.”
“Yeah but Breaking Bad is so good!” Their conversation was interrupted by a knock on the door. Damian looked at Zac, one eyebrow cocked. “Is Talia coming over tonight?”
Zac stood up. “No…she’s at her parent’s house this weekend. Her sister had a major dance recital that she wanted to go to.” He walked to the door and looked through the peephole. No one was there. He opened it and there was a letter sitting on the welcome mat. Zac looked around the courtyard but no one was there. He bent down and cautiously picked up the letter.
He turned back inside and closed the door. He slowly made his way back to the table where Damian was still sitting. “Are you kidding me?”
Zac turned the envelope around, showing Damian what was written on the front. “I know it’s been a month since they started and I haven’t received anything for a few days, but for some reason I thought this was over.”
Damian snickered. “You don’t want to receive any fan mail from anyone but Talia?”
Zac rolled his eyes. “I’m good thanks.” He carefully ripped the top of the envelope. He pulled out the letter and something else fell onto the floor. Zac picked up the item that fell and was horrified.
Not only was there a letter in the envelope, but there was a photo. But it wasn’t just a photo of Zac. It was a photo of Zac and Talia, but Talia’s face was blacked out. Zac immediately knew who sent this.
“Dude…that’s…creepy. I don’t know what to say.” Damian put his hand on Zac’s shoulder in comfort. Even though it wasn’t much, it was still nice.
“You know what the sad thing is? I saw the person who took this picture. She was kinda creepy. I’m pretty sure she just stared at Talia and I the entire time she sat in the library. She was weird.”
“Maybe you should go to campus police? They might be able to help you out.”
Zac nodded. “Maybe I should. The only issue is that I have no idea what she looks like. I know she had brown hair but that was about it.”
Damian shrugged. “Well maybe they could have someone escort you around or watch the door to see if she leaves something. I don’t know, but if you don’t feel safe you need to talk to someone.”
Zac knew Damian was right. He didn’t feel super safe with this creep following him. He agreed with Damian and they immediately left to find campus security.
It was a short walk across campus to find the police station. The boys walked inside to find a single receptionist. She looked up at them over her glasses. “Can I help you?”
“Yeah…” Zac cautiously took a step forward. “I would like to talk to someone about a possible stalker that I have. I don’t really feel safe because she knows my dorm room.”
She sighed and picked up the phone. “Yeah…I have a young man here who says he isn’t feeling safe because he thinks someone is stalking him…uh huh…okay…thanks.” She hung up the phone and stood up from her chair. “Follow me.”
The boys followed her back to a small office where an officer who didn’t look much older than them sat. He stood up and shook their hands. “Hello guys. I’m Officer Kent. Please, have a seat.” All three of them sat down. “So…what can I help you with?”
Zac cleared his throat. “Well…I believe I have someone stalking me. I have received multiple letters from them, I have items missing from my dorm room that aren’t at my girlfriend’s place, and I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen her following me. But today I actually received a letter that had a picture of me and my girlfriend in it, but my girlfriend’s face was blacked out.” He pulled the photo out of the envelope and handed it to the officer.
Officer Kent looked at the photo and handed it back. “Okay…do you know who it is?”
Zac shook his head. “No…I know her name starts with an M because that’s how she ends every letter. I also believe she’s got long brown hair, but I can’t be 100% sure about that.”
Officer Kent leaned back in his chair. “Unfortunately we can’t do much. Unless we know the person’s name, we can’t really do anything.”
Damian smacked his fist on the desk. “Really? You can’t have someone watch our dorm room? Or someone escort him to class and watch out? Seriously?”
The officer sat forward, leaning both elbows on the desk in front of him. “Unfortunately we don’t really have the manpower. It doesn’t seem that serious…”
“She threatened my girlfriend!” Zac pulled out the letter and handed it to the officer.
Officer Kent read it and shrugged. “I’m sorry. It’s still not that serious of a threat. If you are that concerned about it, you should go to the actual police.”
Zac and Damian stood up in unison and stormed out of the campus police station. On their way out they agreed to go to the local police because maybe they could actually help.
Melanie sat on a bench outside the campus police station and waited. She had seen Zac and his roommate walking so she followed them. She sat on the bench behind a book, making her look less conspicuous as she waited for them. They walked out and were talking about going to the police.
She followed them. She stayed close enough where she could hear them, but far enough away where they wouldn’t notice her. It was hard to not run up to them and tell them not to go to the police. She was harmless. There was nothing to worry about.
They talked about going to the police to stop her. How dare they? How could Zac try to break them apart by going to the police? They were meant to be together. How could he not realize that?
Melanie followed them all the way back to the dorms. They made their way to the parking lot where she lost them. She let out a huff before heading back into her dorm room. If he was going to the police, she might as well give them something to talk about.
