Crime Story


Every time I fall asleep my thoughts go directly to that night, the black and dark night that had been painted in a bloody red. The night in which I was involved in a terrible event.

It was Friday night, I was going to meet my boyfriend, Alex, after an exhausting week. We were meeting in a classy and fancy restaurant that was near my house, so I decided to go walking.My outfit matched with the night, it was dark, it transmitted the darkness of that awful night.

The street was not as crowded as always. I started to perceive that something was about to happen when I saw a gun hidden in the two meters and suited man. He had that risky and challenging look, as if he had a lot to say and do. His eyes started to follow a very astonishing woman, with a stretch dress and a pretty face.

I couldn’t stop watching the situation. He started to run after her, she had a pale look, with eyes shouting for help.

The man grabbed her and put her into a black van. Many thoughts were running to my head. Was it a robbery? Was he kidnapping her? To rape her?  She was moving in a desperate way. I didn’t know what to do, I was in a state of shock.

The van was going very fast, so I decided to take a taxi and follow them. I started to peep through the window of a dark house. There was only a light on, showing the face of the girl. She was being hit by this huge man, blood was running all over her face. She was crying non stop. Behind the waterfall of tears and those red eyes, anguish and sadness was expressed in her look.

The man was hitting her so hard that I could even feel the damage that he was causing her. I was about to see a homicide and my mind was froze.

Alex was calling, I answered and he was shouting in a furious way. I told him everything, crying as hard as ever. I asked him for help. He came with some policemen with him. I showed the situation to everyone.

The event was disrupted by the cops. The man was as hard as a rock, neither me or him didn’t know what to do. We were all frozen.

The girl showed an expression of relief. We were all looking at her bloody injuries as the man was being handcuffed in front of everyone, with a sentence waiting for him
