about this story

I woke up on a Tuesday, it was a brisk cold day. I made my coffee and got dressed, put my hat on and went outside. I decided to go for a morning walk. As I was walking I twisted my ankle, as I stumble I see a TV on the side of the road, it didn’t appear to be plugged in, but it was playing something, a video of someone holding an axe, all I could see was a shadow of this person, I was pretty sure this person was committing a murder. As freaked out as I was I sprinted back to my house and got in my black Ford f-150, and went double the speed limit to the police station. All I could think was “who would do this?” and “who recorded this?” . As I arrive at the police station I see that it is barricaded off. “Was there a crime at the police station?” I thought. Being the idiot I am, I decide to go inside, As I was walking I get a chilly gust of wind, I am on edge, but I am still going in. I think “this is how most horror movies start”. But I continue. I reach the main entrance, the place looks deserted. As I venture further into the building I start to see red spots on the walls. I am shaking like a madman, I decide to pull out my revolver just in case. I take a left on the 3rd hallway. I see a red hand splatter on the wall. Then I see a guy, just standing there, he is looking the other way, opposite as me. I yell “hello” and the man replies “i’ve been waiting for you”. At this point I sprint out of the police at mach 5, or at least it felt like that. I got in my truck and drove, I just drove. I was going along the highway next to the beach, when all of sudden a tire pops on my truck, and at the same time someone on the other side of the road veres into me, flinging me over the cliff and onto the beach. I feel a searing pain in my leg, I broke my leg, I could see bone, I remember thinking “this is how I die”. I pull myself out of the wrecked truck, the engine was smoking, once I got further away from the truck by crawling on the ground the truck explodes. I am starting to see everything go black, as my last few seconds of what I thought was my life, I look up and see a helicopter, I feel the wind, the wind is strong. The last I hear before I die was. “Load him up, Get him to the….”. The next thing I know I wake up in a bed at the hospital. They tell me I’ve been out for 3 weeks. I start to freak out, I have so many questions, like “what about the man, or the police station?” The doctor says that some men have been hunting people who know “too much”. I think back to that TV on the road. About another week of bedrest, they let me go, on crutches of course. They got me another vehicle to drive, it was a 2004 Honda Accord. “Better than nothing” I thought. As I am driving I go back to the same intersection where that TV was laying, it was still there, as I am sitting there watching the TV, a black van pulled up and a guy got out, picked up the TV and left. I go home, and slowly start my recovery. I just pray that nothing like this ever happens again.
