Twenty-six-year-old Kathy Conner stood at the cooker and stirred the homemade vegetable soup she’d been preparing for over an hour.  Had she added salt?  Oh, God, he always wanted salt.  Think Kathy, think.

She took a spoon and tasted it.  Yeah, not bad.  Not bad at all.  Just the right amount.  And a little black pepper too.  Perhaps he’d be satisfied this time.  Maybe it was tasty enough, even for him.

She checked the wall clock above the dishwasher for the umpteenth time that afternoon and winced.  Time was getting on.  It was springing away from her, faster, faster and faster, as if to taunt her.  The main course.  It was time to start preparing the main course.  He’d be back soon after five.  That only gave her two hours at best.  It had to be ready and waiting the second he arrived.  There was no room for dawdling.

Kathy stopped suddenly on approaching the fridge, and stood listening for even the slightest sound.  Was that a car pulling up on the driveway?  What the hell?  It couldn’t be, could it?  It was only ten past three.  Please don’t be him.  Please don’t let it be him.

She noticed that her hands were trembling as she allowed the countertop to support her weight.  Whoever it was had switched off the engine.  Oh God, was that a key in the lock?  The front door was opening.  It was definitely opening.  And there were footsteps in the hall.  Heavy footsteps.  His footsteps.  He was getting nearer, nearer, nearer.

“Bully Boy Boy really is a thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat making you cower with fear.” – ireadnovels
