The most mysterious phone call - Part 1
- I was sprawling on my bed, staring despondently at my inbox with no new messages, anticipating breathlessly for someone to draft and send an email declaring they want to save Oasis. I refreshed every 5 minutes on the minute. Nothing.
Don’t think he still has 9 more days just because a picture of him is missing. 8 MORE DAYS!
Suddenly, my Nokia N-Gage cellular telephone rang. I looked at the caller ID. It was a number I have never seen before. I’m not picking this up. It’s tiresome enough answering the phone when people I moderately like call me. Just gonna wait for voicemail.
"Well, I didn’t want to talk to him or her either," I thought, while spitting violently at the floor.
Again? The same number. Odd. I will not answer this phone.
Wait. What if it’s important? What if it’s a potential employer calling to offer me a job? The human resources director of Duane Reade? Nah.
What if it’s my mother or father stranded on the road calling from a payphone using their last quarter to contact me, avoiding the voicemail so that they can continue to desperately call? Bah. I’m not in the mood to talk to them--especially if it means listening to another verbal tirade of "Why don't you ever call us?" from Mother(aka father-to-mother).
What if it’s someone from the hospital? What if it’s…
The ringing stopped. Praise the lord. It was about to drive me crazy. I guess I could put the cellular telephone on silent…
Nooooo!!!! Ahhh!!! That same number! Stop.
“Hello? Who is this?? Stop calling me!”
An evil voice replied, “Hello Nate, It’s…”
I hung up. That'll teach this devilish sounding man to cool it with the unsolicited phone calls.
"You listen up, and listen good," the black metal voice commanded. He's possibly the lead singer of Cradle of Filth.
"Look, this is costing me daytime minutes. Anyways, I don't take orders from the most sinister voice I've ever heard. Goodbye!" I waited for his reaction.
"This is Sebastian Tolliver. The man who left Debbie in a lifeless heap."
"EEK!" I shrieked.
From the Webmaster: Part two Monday. ALSO: After some serious research I've managed to locate Debbie's personal blog!! I was shocked at what I read! The pieces are coming together.
