Pretty Crazy by: Yancey Uriah (Excerpt: Prologue)

Gabrielle knew it was now or never. Her heart pounded, it felt as if it was about to jump out of her chest. The sound of her heart beating and her breathing drowned out everything else as she contemplated her next move.

She looked at the crazed female who looked demonic possessed. Her hair was a mess, she had dark bags under her eyes and her eyeliner was running down her face.

This wasn’t a part of the plan. No one else was suppose to get hurt” the crazed female said to herself as she wiped tears from her eyes and carried on the conversation with herself.

Gabrielle knew she had to make a move and quick. So without warning she opened the car door and jumped out. She hit the hard highway and rolled with force. The ditch caught Gabrielle. She felt the wetness of the water in the ditch along with the tall grass. Gabrielle laid there for a few seconds as she felt several spots on her body start to burn.

You bitch!” Gabrielle heard the driver scream as she slammed on brakes. The car tires screamed as they sent thick clouds of gray smoke in the cool night air.

Gabrielle received several scraps and cuts from her jump from the speeding car but at least she had her life. She jumped up from the ditch and took off running toward the nearest wooden area she saw near by.

Lord, please don’t let this crazy chick killed me, please God” Gabrielle prayed. “This is what I get for always trying to help every basket case that comes my way”Gabrielle thought to herself as she ran but at the same time looked for any kind of weapon she could use to defend herself with.

Gabrielle ran until she felt she was a safe distance from the crazed female that she once consider a close friend. She took a few deep breathes as she tried to give her heart time to slow down. She looked around and tried to figure which direction would be the best to run in, she knew she had to move quick because she could hear footsteps as they got closer.

Gabrielle started to run and then “BAM!”, she ran into something and was knocked down. She shook her head several times, in an attempt to regain her composure.

Help me please” she said as tears started to run down her face. “She is crazy, the bitch is trying to kill me” Gabrielle said as Damario held his hand out to help her up.

Who trying to kill you?” Damario asked.

Gabrielle tried to catch her breathe. She wondered to herself why Demario was in the woods this time of night. She was just about to question him about it, but didn’t get the chance.
WAM!” the deranged female driver landed a powerful blow to the back of Gabrielle’s head which sent her to the ground in a state of unconsciousness.
Damario was in total shock as he looked down and watched the blood race from the opening in the back of Gabrielle’s head.

Why did you do that?” Damario asked. “You didn’t have to hurt her. You said that we weren’t going to hurt anybody else” Damario said as he bend down to check and see if Gabrielle had a pulse.
The crazed female looked down at Gabrielle with a blink expression on her face. It was as if what she had just done didn’t register in her mind as something bad or wrong.

She’s dead” Damario said as he wiped Gabrielle’s blood that got on his hand on his pants.
Now what are we suppose to do when people start looking for her, and you can best believe they are going to come looking?” Damario asked.

The crazed female still stood in a zombie like state. She mumbled words but they were so low that Damario couldn’t clearly hear them.

How in the hell did I wine up in this bull-crap here? And how in the hell am I going to get out of it?” Demario asked himself. He just couldn’t believe that he had allowed this woman to get him into yet another situation that could no doubt wine them both up in prison.

Do you know the changes we facing if we get caught?” Demario asked as he grabbed the woman by both arms and pulled her closer to him. “We facing arm robbery, fraud, kidnapping and murder. Do you hear me? Am I getting through to you?” Demario asked the young lady.

She pulled away from him and started walking around in a circle. She continued the conversation with herself that she was having in the car.

She jumped out the car. She wasn’t suppose to jump out the car” the young lady said as she started to cry. “She wasn’t suppose to jump out the car” she repeated several more times.

Look, we in over our heads. I can’t keep doing this crazy stuff” Damario said as he stared in the lady’s eyes that he had one day planned to make his wife.

So what you saying, you going to turn your back on me? You going to do me like every other sorry bastard that ever came in my life?” the young lady said as tears continued to make their way down her face.
You need to get some help, you can’t keep doing this baby. We going to wine up in more trouble than we will ever be able to get out of” Damario said as he looked at the female with a look of pity on his face.

Don’t look at me like that! Don’t you dare look at me like that! You said you would always love me. You said you would stay with me forever” the young lady took a deep breathe now crying uncontrollably. “I told you all about how my mother beat me, how she keep me locked in the closet and would go days without feeding me. How she blamed me for all the wrong stuff that happened in her life. She did things to me that no one should ever have to endure in their life” the young female said as she relived in her head the abuse that she suffered at the hands of her mother.

I’m not going to leave you, I’m just going to get you some help” Damario said as he reached out to hug the young lady.

WOP!” she landed a blow to the side of his face sending him to the ground just as she did Gabrielle.

You just want me to be locked back up again. You don’t give a damn about me” she said as she looked at Damario, he rubbed his face as his blood came thought the cracks of his fingers.

Baby, don’t do this, please” Damario weakly pleaded as the vision in one of his eyes became blurred.

I’m just so close, so close. I just can’t let you or anybody else stop me” she said as she landed another blow to Damario’s face which caused his right eyeball to fly out of the socket. She then continued landing blows until there was no movement at all left in Damario.

The young lady stood there, covered in the blood of her two victims. She got down on her knees and kissed what was left of Damario’s disfigured face.

I’m sorry baby” she said as she laid down beside Damario’s lifeless body. She took his arm and wrapped it around her. It wasn’t long before she had fallen to sleep.
