Turn around

My phone started to ring just as my popcorn had just finished. With a sigh, I heave myself away from the microwave and head towards the phone. Lifting it up, I answered, "Hello?"

"Turn around." A voice answered. 

My heart jumped. What? I could feel my pulse start to race.

"What are you talking about? Is this a prank?" I exclaimed.

The voice gave a little chuckle. I feel as if it could sense my fear. 

"I wouldn't do that if I were you. Listen to what I said and turn around." It commanded.

I stopped, my finger above the button that ends the call and put my hand back down to my side. I had made up my mind. Turning around, a shudder runs throughout my body. My body froze as my eyes met caught sight of the being that stood behind me. This is so much like a horror movie. 

It had a cloak on and I couldn't see much. However, I could see the glint of the silver butcher knife that they held. My mind was screaming at me to run but a voice in my head told to not. I listened to the voice. Maybe this is all a prank?! Maybe . . . . but my heart told me otherwise.
