The Silent Follower
(Part One)

 

It was Sunday afternoon.

Johnson parked his car.

He and his wife went into a supermarket.

They wandered around for a while.

Johnson suddenly whispered to his wife,

“Darling, look at the man at the door.”

He has been following us for a whole day!

I saw him near our home this morning.

I saw him in the park.

I saw him at the gate of the cinema this afternoon."

 

His wife turned and saw the man.

The man noticed Johnson's wife looking at him.

He turned to avoid their looking at each other.

She said,

"He is doing nothing anyway.

Leave him alone!"

His wife bought a bottle of shampoo,

a pack of soap and some toilet paper.

She made payment.

They walked to the door.

The man disappeared.

They walked to an Italian restaurant nearby.

They got into the restaurant and sat at a table.

The table was next to a window.

 

Johnson and his wife were reading the menu.

A waitress was standing beside the table.

She was waiting for their order.

They ordered a pizza and some soup.

After a while , the food was served.

They were about to have the meal.

Then Johnson noticed a man standing outside the window.

The man was facing the street.

Johnson could not see his face.

He could only see his back.

But Johnson was sure it was the man following them.

 

Johnson was very angry.

He had no mood to eat.

He walked out of the restaurant.

He rushed to the man and yelled,

"Who are you?

Why are you following me?"

The man said nothing.

He ran away.

 

Johnson went back to the table.

He sat down to eat the food.

After a while, he looked out of the window.

He saw the man standing on the other side of the street.

He wanted to go out again.

His wife said,

"Darling, leave him alone.

He is doing nothing anyway."

 

After dinner, it was dark outside.

They went to the car and drove home.

Johnson was in bad mood.

He said nothing.

They watched TV for a while.

Then they went upstairs for night.

Johnson took a bath and wanted to go to bed.

He went to close the curtain of the bedroom.

Through the window, he saw the man again.

He was standing in the street not far from his house.

 

Johnson did not tell his wife.

His wife soon went to sleep.

He was sleepless.

He could not drive the man out of his mind.

At midnight, he got up quietly.

He opened the curtain a little bit.

He looked outside.

To his horror, the man was still standing there.

He got up several times to look at the man.

He saw the man standing there every time.

The end of Part One

 

 

The Silent Follower

(Part 2)

 

At dawn, he was asleep for a while.

It was Monday.

After breakfast, Johnson drove to his work.

He worked in a lawyer's office.

His office was in a tall building down town.

He was busy all morning.

 

At lunch time, he went to a restaurant nearby.

He sat at a table next to a window.

Then he saw the man standing outside the window.

He was facing the street.

Johnson could not see his face.

He could only see his back.

 

He walked out of the restaurant.

The man saw Johnson and ran away.

Johnson chased him.

The man ran very fast.

Johnson could not catch up with him.

He had to go back to the restaurant.

 

He made his order and waited for his food.

Then he saw the man standing on the other side of the street.

Johnson did not go out this time.

He called police.

But before the police arrived, the man ran away.

Johnson explained to the policemen.

The policemen left unhappily.

 

Johnson's food was served.

He was about to eat.

Then he saw the man standing outside the window again.

He called the police again.

But before the police arrived again, the man ran away again.

The policemen was very annoyed.

They took Johnson to the police station.

 

He had to stay at the police station for a whole afternoon.

He had to explain again and again.

But the police did not listen to him.

He was told not to annoy the police again.

 

Johnson went home.

He did not tell his wife what had happened.

At night, Johnson went to close the curtain.

He saw the man standing in the street again.

He was sleepless.

He could not drive the man out of his mind.

He got up several times to look at the man.

He saw him every time.

 

At dawn, the man was still there.

Johnson determined to catch the man.

He got up and put on a pair of sport shoes.

He went out of the house and rushed to the man.

 

The man saw Johnson and ran away.

Johnson chased him.

When Johnson ran fast, the man ran fast.

When Johnson ran slowly, the man ran slowly.

 

The man ran as fast as Johnson.

So he kept a certain distance from Johnson.

Johnson followed the man up a hill.

The man ran to a cliff.

Johnson was very happy.

He knew that the man had no way to run.

 

The man had to stop at the edge of the cliff.

Johnson was very close to the man.

Johnson stopped, too.

He asked,

"Who are you?

Why do you always follow me?"

The man said nothing.

He jumped off the cliff.

 

Johnson went to the edge of the cliff.

He looked down.

The cliff was very high.

He knew the man must have died.

 

He felt released.

He got rid of the man at last.

He turned around to leave.

Suddenly he saw the man just before him.

Johnson was so scared that he moved back.

He fell off the cliff.

Days later, police found his corpse at the hillside.
