The Man in the Shadows | Vol 1, Story 3
Rachel was shaken by her encounter with the man in the shadows, but she refused to let it control her life.....
Rachel was shaken by her encounter with the man in the shadows, but she refused to let it control her life. She started carrying pepper spray with her at all times and made sure to lock all the doors and windows at night. She also installed a security system in her house, just in case the man came back.
But despite her precautions, Rachel couldn't shake the feeling that she was being watched. She would catch glimpses of a shadowy figure in the corner of her eye, or hear strange noises at night that she couldn't explain. She tried to dismiss it as her imagination, but deep down she knew that the man in the shadows was still out there.
One night, Rachel was getting ready for bed when she heard a loud crash from downstairs. She grabbed her pepper spray and ran to the living room, where she found the man in the shadows standing in the middle of the room.
She screamed and sprayed him with the pepper spray, but it seemed to have no effect. He lunged at her, his eyes glowing with a maniacal light. Rachel fought back with all her strength, but she was no match for the man.
Just as she thought all was lost, she heard the sound of sirens outside. The police had finally arrived, alerted by the security system. They rushed into the house and arrested the man, who was taken away in handcuffs.
Rachel was shaken but alive, thanks to her quick thinking and the security system. She knew that she would never forget the man in the shadows, but at least she could rest easier knowing that he was locked away where he couldn't hurt anyone else.
