The Stranger On The Phone Part 11 (Short Story)

An ambulance arrived in a few minutes about the same time as a police van. Tricia stepped aside and two of the paramedics bent to attend to him. At the same time, a policeman approached her. Another policeman engaged Cem in a talk about the incident.

“My name is Sam,” one of the paramedics with the victim said. “You’ve been in a motor accident. Answer me without moving your head. We don’t know if you’ve a neck injury. Who’re you?”

“Jack White,” he mumbled, and the other man wrote it down on a notebook.

“Where’re you?”

“USA.”

“What time of the day is this?”

“It’s dark.”

***

“Excuse me, madam, can I ask you some questions about the accident?” the uniformed man with Tricia said.

“Feel free.”

“My name is Baris.”

“Tricia.”

“Do you know him?”

“We met for the first time shortly before the unpleasant incident. It happened about 20 minutes ago.”

The Stranger On The Phone Part 9 (Short Story)

 

It was about 3° Celsius outside but she headed to her destination unruffled, although concerned about the passersby in a hurry for their destination and the cars speeding past her.

“Hello Tricia, what’re you doing in Istanbul?” the young man right in front of her said.

She hesitated before she stopped. “I don’t know you,” she said.

“Yes, you don’t know me but I’m one of your fans. My mother wears only the clothes that bear your label.”

“Wow, really?”

“Yes, really.”

“I’m flattered.”

“It’s a fact.”

She smiled, gazing at him. He was handsome, but that was the least on her mind.

He secretly clicked two of his fingers, and a moving Mazda Rx-7 lost control and headed towards them. He pushed her to safety and calculatively jumped against the bonnet of the car, hitting the windscreen and rolling over to the ground.

The car came to an abrupt stop without hurting anyone. So many people besieged the scene. Tricia rushed in tears to meet him; her body was shaking.

The Stranger On The Phone Part 7 (Short Story)

Tricia reclined on the bed with relief, balancing with her legs on the floor, considering whether to send a text message to Jack or call him. She would like to hear his melodious voice, but she was scared that the first caller might intercept the call and make her night horrific.

She sat upright again after a while and began to type a message for Jack:

Hi, Jack. I’m so sorry I missed your call. Thank you for trying to reach me, despite the interruption you encountered at 9 pm. I will like to see you. Do you mind if we meet in a restaurant for breakfast later this morning? If no, let’s meet in Olive Restaurant at 8 am. You will find the restaurant in front of the central park. Thanks for understanding.  

Regards,

Tricia.

          She reluctantly sent the message, turned off her phone, and hid it away beneath one of the pillows on the bed. She adjusted comfortably, her head on a pillow, eyes closed, but her active mind had kept her awake for some moments before she fell asleep. The window curtains heaved as a sudden breeze stirred, and in a corner of the room a vague shadow of a man was still, staring at her as if he were considering what to do to her. She turned away backing him, and by chance she opened her eyes and could not wait to go through her phone.
