this is one of the worst texts you will ever receive.
i was gonna turn my phone off for the day too.
i won’t be doing that anymore.
so my best home vixen texted me that this morning.
it was like the world stopped at that very moment.
the amount of fear that gripped my body just now…
i can’t even put it into font.
i instantly started crying.
she is in maryland; i’m in new yawk.
all the thoughts that went through my head…
should i call?
but what if she was hiding?
what if me calling gave it away?
why isn’t she replying?
is she safe?
have i told her that i loved her lately?
i was consumed with dread.
waiting for a text back felt like hours.
all i could do was sit and think.
these are the next set of texts:
i started crying even worse than before.
this is the forests now.
at any moment,
we all could receive a text like this.
from our parents,
or significant others.
worst of all,
if we’re the ones sending the text to one of those folks.
now i know how those family members felt on the receiving end.
the ones who lost loved ones in all of those various shootings.
i’m so grateful she is okay.
lowkey: she just told me she has been preparing for this.
she had her escape plan,
but even in the depth of fear,
she was shook.
