Hey guys, I know its been a few days but I just want to update you on everything that has happened since my last post. The rest of the night after I posted was pretty crazy and I’m still trying to process everything that happened. While “Sarah” was gone I was reading over your comments and two things stuck out to me, that you guys didn’t think “Sarah” was being malevolent, and that I should check out where she worked. I also checked my phone a couple times and there was 100% a post by Sarah, from Cancun, made that day.
So, the first thing I did was phone her work. She works as a hairdresser so that made it easy. When one of the stylists picked up the phone I pretended to want to book an appointment with Sarah, then I said “oh that’s right, she said she was going to be on vacation, is there anyone else I could get a haircut from?”
The stylist paused for a second and then said, “You must be mistaken sir, Sarah isn’t on vacation, in fact she’s right here, I’ll get her-“ I immediately hung up the phone and slumped into my couch. “Sarah” was at work, but Sarah was also 100% in Mexico, was this a prank? Did she have a twin I didn’t know about? I was pretty lost the rest of the day.
That night “Sarah” came home and offered to make me dinner. As we sat down to eat, she told me all about how some creep phoned her work thinking she was on vacation and then just hung up. I forced a light laugh and she looked at me concerned and asked if I was feeling alright. I told her I was fine and that I was just feeling a little off that day. She walked up to me and kissed me on the cheek, then she moved to my ear and whispered in a sultry voice: “I know a way to make you feel better”. I turned to face her and saw her cheeky grin, I sighed, “I don’t know, I’m really not in the mood for that right now”. She looked at me really annoyed, “Look Corey, I’m throwing myself at you here, if you don’t want to be with me just tell me,”
“Its not like that…”
“Well then what is it?”
I sighed and pulled out my phone, “Can you explain this to me?” I showed her the picture. She stared at her phone for a bit, seemingly in shock. Finally, she set it down and looked back at me worried,
“I don’t know what that is,”
“What do you mean?”
“Look…” she pulled out her phone and showed me her account, she had full access. She brought up the picture and deleted it and then put her arms around me. Not in a sensual way but in a I’m-scared-shitless way. We held each other for a bit before moving into the living room and decompressing.
“I’m sorry I got mad at you,” she said softly,
“I’m sorry I doubted you,” I replied. We sat there for a bit before she got up and made her way to the door, “I’m going to go for a walk Corey, before it gets too dark, I’ll be back in a bit”. As she stepped outside, I felt my whole body shudder. What the hell was going on? I looked at where Sarah was just sitting, it had to be her, right? But what was with that picture? Was this some weird loyalty test? But she seemed really freaked out too…
I lied down on the couch and thought about it for a bit. Like you guys said she wasn’t acting malevolent and she seemed like Sarah, like MY Sarah. Maybe that was it, I wanted her so bad that when she literally showed up at my doorstep I couldn’t handle it. I got up and paced around the house a bit. That had to be it, the photo had to be some weird glitch or a dumb hacker or something and I shouldn’t worry about it. I had the girl of my dreams, she’s clearly super into me too. I should just relax and accept that I’m the luckiest guy in the world.
She came home about an hour later and I immediately went and apologized to her again. I told her that I was thinking and I realized that I was being paranoid. I said that I wasn’t quite ready for things to be moving as fast as they were but I wanted to be with her and I wanted to make sure that it was a lasting relationship because there was no one else I wanted to be with. She looked at me with a big smile and started to sob a bit. She said she was so worried that I was turning her down and that she wanted to be with me too. After that we shared a soft, passionate kiss, and got ready for bed.
We opted to sleep in the same bed again but nothing happened. Even though we were cuddling and in our underwear, she respected my boundaries and didn’t try to initiate anything. We watched some random shows and after a little while she fell asleep. Once I knew it was okay, I carefully shimmied onto my back and stared at the ceiling. Here I was, with Sarah beside me, just like I had always dreamt. I stayed like that for a bit, just lost in my thoughts. Suddenly a sound snapped me back to reality. I looked around and then realized the TV was still on, it had switched over to the nighttime news. I watched it absentmindedly for a bit until a story came on that has left me beside myself for the last couple days. While Sarah slept beside me the newsanchor said:
“For our next story: Local woman gone missing during dream Mexican vacation.”
What is going on?
