The Stalker is a 10,000 word short story. (Part 1)

Zoey is a journalism student. She meets an older man called Peter at the bar who claims to be a journalist. When Peter offers to help her get a story in the local newspaper, Zoey jumps at the chance.

Zoey is 21 years old, Peter is 65.

After they exchange phone numbers, Peter is enthusiastic to spend time with her. They start meeting up for drinks to discuss her path as a writer. But that's when Zoey starts to question their budding relationship.

She's keen to further her career, and initially saw Peter as the perfect opportunity. But is he? With a quick touch here and a cheeky peck there, how does Peter really feel about Zoey? Is she being paranoid, irrational maybe?

Is Peter the helpful fellow writer he seems to be, or is there something more sinister lurking beneath his seemingly good intentions?

About the Author

Originally an experienced copywriter and coming from a marketing background, I've recently pursued my creative writing passion and love for thrillers with the release of my new debut thriller book.

I've always had a wild imagination, and I'm always drawn to things that make us terrified, disgusted, shocked or down right petrified. It is these mysterious and darker ways of the world that make us feel alive.

I want my readers to come away feeling entertained, positively distracted and maybe a little disturbed. This is my contribution to the genre and all the thriller advocates across the globe.

Zoey is out celebrating with friends when she meets Peter in the pub. He buys her a drink and seems friendly enough but there is something about him that creeps Zoey out. After a couple chance encounters, Peter tells Zoey that he could help out her journalism career. Zoey is excited but the more she is around Peter the more she is unnerved. But if he could help her career there is nothing to worry about, right? This is a great short story. It is a classic case of a stalker. Zoey gets the creeps from Peter but she doesn’t listen to her feelings. I take Krav Maga classes and this is one of the first things that you are taught in self defense, listen to that little voice inside telling you something. I loved the ending! This is a great thriller and left me wanting other stories from Karly Edwards. This is one short story that I recommend everyone checking out. I received The Stalker for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
