A night, just like any other night in Chicago. A glistening full moon filled the sky. The stars were out. Shining as bright as the clear blue sky on a warm Summer's day. For Amy Angel, this night was like any ordinary night for this fourteen year old.
Or... so it seemed.
God... why me ?
She sighs. Searching the skies for an answer. As something appeared to be troubling her on this beautiful evening.
The city was very busy tonight. Which was not uncommon even at this late hour. People driving home from there nightly errands. Citizens passing through after spending a night of shopping at the local mall.
I hate it when she does this to me. Why of all nights do I have to be home by 11 ? Its a travesty if you ask me. I'm fourteen ! I can make my own decisions.
Amy was walking home after a long night of partying and having fun with her friends. Nothing out of the ordinary for her. She was your typical teenager. Quite the rebellious type. Thinking she knew everything about the world around here.
Why do I have to have a curfew on Friday nights ? Its not a school night. Ugh ! I wish mother could get that through her thick skull. Its just not fair ! My other friends don't have curfews. Why should I ? Sometimes I wonder if its even worth the trouble of having a social life ? Why must I have a teacher of all things as a mother ? And a strict one at that.
*Sighs*... perhaps one of these days. When she see's that I'm mature enough to handle myself. Maybe she'll lighten up ?
On second thought, not a chance !
Finally, after a good ten minute walk. She reaches her home.
Something seemed a bit off as she reached the front gates. They were open !?
Of course, mother was expecting Amy to be home. But usually at nights. The gates remained closed to keep intruders from coming in. Only to be opened from the control panel inside the house.
That's strange. I guess mother had some guests tonight.
As Amy reaches the front door. She turns the doorknob to find the door unlocked for her. Thinking nothing out of the ordinary. She comes into her home, closing the door behind her.
The lights were on throughout the home as she called for her mother:
Mother, I'm Home !
Amy then utters under her breath:
You may come out now, and lecture me for being late as usual
Oddly... her mother didn't answer her call.
This is strange.
Looking over at the clock nearby, reading precisely 10:58 pm.
She's never in bed this early unless its a school night. She probably went on to bed. I guess I better go ahead and turn in as well.
Amy then makes her way up the stairs to the 2nd floor. Where her room, and her mother's room were located at. As she reached the top of the stairs. She looks over and see's her mother's bedroom door was cracked open.
I might as well check on her to see if she's alright.
She reaches the door and slowly pushes it open. No lights were turned on as she called out to her mother once more:
Mother ? Are you asleep ? I just wanted to let you know I was home and...
Amy takes about two steps into the room when she looks down at the ground. Noticing blood on the carpet. Nervously... she says:
Ma... Mother ? Is everything alright ?
As soon as she says this. She flips the light switch to reveal a horrific sight !
Blood was splattered all over the room. Lying on at the foot of the bed was her mother. Nude, and brutally stabbed to death. Amy let out a blood curdling scream !
She immediately began sobbing and crying uncontrollably. As she began back peddling out of the room. Obviously, in complete & utter shock. She began to gag. Coming very close to puking at the sight of this horrific massacre. Who could've done such a thing ?
Amy... knowing that her mother was obviously dead by the amount of blood she had lost. Turned, and ran down the stairs just as fast as she could go. Running to grab the nearest phone just by the Dining Room.
As she began to pick up the phone and dial 9-1-1. She saw someone dressed in black from head to toe. Presumingly, this was the killer, out of the corner of her eye.. As the killer made a mad dash towards the back door. Amy slams the phone down and picks up a large butcher knife nearby from the counter. She began chasing the killer.
The killer jumped the wall out back behind the house. Leading into a large wooded area. Thinking on nothing but anger and rage. Amy chased after him and followed suit.
After a quarter of a mile into the woods. Amy lost track of the killer. She stops for a moment to catch her breath. Crying, and sobbing as she tries to gain whatever amount of composure was left inside her body.
As she began to take the next few steps. Suddenly...
The killer struck her down. Hitting her upside the head with a large tree branch. Amy lied on the ground. Knocked out cold, and defenseless.
The killer then pulled out a knife. The very knife used to stab Amy's mother. Kneeling down over top of Amy. The killer whispers in her ear:
Killer: Dream a Little Dream. My dear sweet, princess. Rest comfortably, and relax. Count to seven & you'll be in heaven !
The killer raises the knife in the air. Just because he could deliver the final blow. Loud sirens could then be heard off in the distance. Apparently someone had called the authorities after hearing Amy's loud scream.
Scared by this. The killer leaves Amy and runs off into the night. After a few minutes went by. She started to temporally regaining consciousness. Long enough to faintly whisper:
I love you, mom...
Afterwords, she falls into unconsciousness. She would lie here in the woods until daybreak.
**Approximately 7:00 AM**
Amy Angel's house was now officially a crime scene. Cops began searching the area for clues. Asking any of the neighbors if they saw anything suspicious. While this was going on. Several police officers began searching the woods. Where they eventually come across Amy Angel.
Cop #1: Sargent ! We need the paramedics back here fast. We've got another body !
The other cop checks Amy's pulse. Finding that she has a very feint one.
Cop #2: Sir, she's still alive.
About twelve minutes later. Paramedics arrive as fast as they could to attend to Amy. Immediately loading her up on the stretcher and racing back to the Ambulance. As she is put inside the ambulance. Paramedics begin performing CPR, and checking her blood pressure. Her breathing was shallow, and blood pressure was starting to crash.
It was then one of the paramedics saw the huge not on the back of her head. With some dry blood in her hair. Fearing that she could be suffering from severe brain trauma. They immediately race towards the nearest hospital.
To Be Continued.
