Ice-Cream

It was snowing heavily.
Lizy still braved the snow to satisfy her craving.
She bought a pack of ice-cream.

It was the last one in stock.
Lizy felt lucky.

The shopkeeper hadn't stocked up thinking there would be no demand considering the weather.
But, he was wrong.

On her way back to her home, Lizy felt someone was following her.
The road was deserted.
Lizy started walking briskly.

The person was soon behind her.
She heard his deep breathing.

He reached out his arm...

Lizy was terrified and wanted to scream.


Giving her bag he said, “You forgot your ice-cream!”

  5. Yes, I've done that. I'm not usually lucky enough to have the shopkeeper chase after me with my forgotten goods, though! Nice story.
