Hysterical

I haven’t written anything on here because I have literally been speechless.

About 3 nights ago after the shenanigans at the hotel with the kid, I hear the sound of my intercom. Its Mr Boss Man and the gang member who originally trapped me. I told them to go away- they refused.

For four minutes straight they buzzed my intercom. The buzzer is as loud as a fire alarm so it got to the point where I had to unscrew the entire intercom system and take it off the wall to stop the sound. But by that point they had kicked the door open downstairs and made their way up to my front door.

I was told to open my door or there would be trouble. I refused. They informed me there would be more than trouble if I refused again. I begged them to leave, I pleaded with them. I was sobbing by that stage because I had just sat through four minutes of relentless buzzing from my intercom which the entire street could probably hear, it was that loud. But what was making me absolutely hysterical was the fact that neither of them seemed to be phased by the very real possibility that the police might randomly turn up unannounced to speak to me about the kid, or that my home is most likely under surveillance, or that one of the neighbours could have phoned the police to report what was going on. Why weren’t they remotely bothered by the threat of the police?

I had had my locks changed earlier that day so their set of keys didn’t work. But they had already prepared for this eventuality because a few seconds later I heard my bathroom window being jiggled. This amused me until I walked into my bathroom and realised there was a very high chance of them getting in, since the spokes that closed the window and held it shut had been snapped off.

I used all my weight to hold the window closed while they got angrier and angrier. In the end Mr Boss Man told the original trapper to “shank me” the second he managed to get into my flat. The original trapper told me he was going to round up the rest of the gang then come and kill me.

I was alone in my flat in the worst part of the city. I was hysterical, terrified and at my wits end.

So I got on webchat to the police;

I realised I needed to tell them the truth so I got on webchat for a second time;

END of chat session logs.

And yes admittedly I lost the plot, but absolutely fuck all got done. The operator rang me on my mobile phone and I clammed up. The gang were directly outside by this point and I was too nervous to talk just in case they overheard. Yet I still had faith. I figured it would not be long before I saw blue flashing lights outside my window, because the operator had realised I was in a situation where I was unable to speak. I never thought I would be left on my own for them to get back in again.

But they did. I’m trapped worse than I have ever been.
