Left. Right. Left. Right.

You walk home from a Halloween Party.

Left. Right. Left. Right.

It is a cool day in October.

Left. Right. Left. Right.

The best choice you ever made was moving to a new college.

Left. Right. Left. Right.

You don’t remember the walk home being so long.

Left. Left. Right. Right. Left. Left. Right. Right.

You have an english assignment due in a day or two.

Left. Left. Right. Right. Left. Left. Right. Right.

You are not alone; you turn around, holding onto your Halloween costume.

You turn, attempt to walk faster in shoes that are too high to handle.

You are NOT. Alone.

Left. Left. Right. Right. Left. Left. Right. Right.

Left. Left. Right. Right. Left. Left. Right. Right.

You are so close to your campus.

Left. Left. Right. Right. Left. Left. Right. Right.

You are so close to your dorm room. Just need to turn…

Left. Left. Right. Right. Left. Left. Right. Right.

You land on the floor. You feel cold, masculine hands go up your Halloween Costume and grab your underwear.

You scream. There are no more footsteps. There is no security. This is the end. You are now alone.

Being alone doesn’t stop you. You kick and scream. You have the upper hand. You are NOT going to be defeated.

He flees.

You are free.

Are you…free?

You call the police; explain this sexual harassment act that has occurred.

Steps away from campus.

Feet away from your dorm.

A face you will never forget. A man in a black shirt and blue pants. A man who is taller than you.

A face you can’t forget.

A feeling you won’t forget.

Who knows what this man was going to do to you!

This is serious.

Someone must know.

Everyone must know.

You receive an email. You are warned. Your campus done its part. “Be on the lookout!”

You have been warned.  
Have you?
