She pulled out the knife and plunged it into my stomach once more. I pushed her off me, she hit her head on the table behind and collapsed.
I got up, pulled out the knife slowly. It hurt like hell. ‘I’ve never been stabbed before’. I threw the knife away and tried to stop the bleeding. I could hear the police footsteps upon the stairs.
I looked around, I needed a fast exit then I noticed the wind blew open the window. I walked towards it, Damn! It was a long way down. I’d bled all over the perfectly waxed floor.
How was I gonna get down three storeys? The footsteps grew louder, My heart paced faster. I took a step backwards, was ready to jump. Suddenly I felt a force pull me back.
I staggered and fell flat to the ground. She was holding the knife firmly. I hit her knees and rolled sideways watching her fall upon the knife.
Blood began gushing out like a tap went on. I looked at the door, the door knob twisted.
I drew myself up and raced towards the window, jumping out and landing on a car. The alarm system went off upon my collision.
“Ahh,” I groaned, feeling my bones crack as I got off the car and began walking.
I stared up the window. I could see flashlight, Surely the Cops have found her Corpse.
I didn’t mean for things to end like that. This was one hell of a love story.
My name is Daniel, I used to think the world was black and white, now I realize it’s filled with shades of Gray.
