I Don't Want to be Alone Anymore
The dark seemed darker than it ever had before. And in its waiting arms lay Leyna. I knew I shouldn’t have gone. She told herself time and again. Richie will be so upset. “Should I call him?” Her own voice startled her. With a shake, Leyna found herself on the phone with Richie. “I went to the party, darling.” No answer. “I had an okay time.” No answer. “I… Why won’t you say something, Richie?”

Leyna hung up the phone quickly.
I don’t want to be alone, anymore.
“Did you hear me, Richie?” She yelled into the receiver. “I don’t want to be alone anymore!”
