“I have an issue where I think someone may be stalking me, and it’s starting to scare me.” A tremor shook her voice.
“Tell me about it?”
She sat back in her chair and took a deep breath. “I started noticing this a month or so ago. Certain nagging things, like the sense someone was following me: first a car and then a person always seemingly behind me when shopping. The feeling someone’s been in the house. Items not where they should be when I returned home. Finding the door unlocked when I’m certain I locked it. Calls on my home phone and cell, with no one speaking on the other side when I answered, the numbers always blocked. Lots of little things like that.”
“Do you ever see them? Can you give me a description? What about a make, color and model of the car you’ve seen?”
“That’s part of the problem, and I’m not the best at descriptive details. From what I’ve seen he’s male, but seems like a different person each time. Anywhere from 6 foot to 6’3” with dark hair, clothed in various outfits, from jeans and a T-shirt, to dark slacks with a light-colored polo shirt. Much like you’re dressed now. The vehicles have been anything from a dark four-door sedan to a large SUV to even a motorcycle. I get glimpses, but it’s always a little different and nothing I can pinpoint exactly. He seems extremely elusive and sly—a shadow in the background.”
This all sounded strange to me. I hoped she wasn’t some kook searching for attention. I’d need more to go on and tried not to seem too perplexed by what she told me. I needed the job and liked what I was looking at.
“I know what you’re thinking,” she said, reading my thoughts, “crazy woman seeing things. That’s what the police told me as well. They thought they were talking to a nut job, though they didn’t say it in so many words. But I’ve been down this road before with someone else, and I don’t care to go down it again.”
“So, you’re saying...” I asked.
“Yes. This isn’t the first time I’ve been stalked!” she said with a chill in her voice. This potential case had just gotten more interesting.
