Story - NF
Woke up in a bad place
Should probably get up so I'm not late
Stared at my phone for the past
8 Minutes at nothing my head aches
Bottle's empty by the lampshade I'm out of
Excedrin again great
Too early to tell but at this rate
I'm thinking this might be a bad day
I walk out the bedroom my roommate's
Asleep on the couch with her twofaced
Boyfriend who lives here but don't pay
A penny for rent but he still stays
She says he's broke I'm like "No way"
Probably sells drugs but she won't say
Told me he dabbles in real estate
I mean I don't believe it but ok
Ok, pull out the driveway
Notice my gas tank's
On E again well of course it is
Guess I probably should stop at the gas station
So I take a right pull up to the pump while it's pumpin'
I look at my ashtray
Then remember I need to get cigarettes
Anything to help my mind state
So I park and walk inside wait?
I should probably
Get something to drink and eat I guess
So I find and grab a couple bags of chips
Where's the candy aisle?
Oh yeah here it is
Which one should I get?
Should I grab the Starburst or... change it up and maybe grab the Twix
Grab the Starburst
Then I started walkin' as I pass the garbage and I reach the fridge
I hear someone yelling at the front...
Of the store
Probably just a homeless guy getting bored
Probably just a customer whose card didn't work
And now he wants to start a war
Man I can't afford to
Keep buying energy drinks every day I shut the door then
And as I'm heading towards the counter with my drink
I hear "Hey open up the drawer!"
Crouching on the floor
Peak around the aisle
Gun is on the fore- head of the man that's behind the counter
Now my heart is poundin' and I'm praying to the Lord
I don't die today
I can't die today
I got things to do
Trying not to shake
Plotting my escape
Where's my cell phone at
Left it in my car?
Icing on the cake
I start crawling
I can hear em yelling
"I want every penny
I want every dime"
"Once you finish with the cash open up the back throw some cigarettes inside"
"Which ones do you want
Which ones do you want"
"I'm not picky give me any kind
Give me all of em!
Yeah just toss em in
Keep it moving though I'm running low on time...
An I'd advise ya
To move a little quicker
Trust me, I don't wanna have to pull the trigger
I've done it before it's not a pretty picture
What you don't believe me?
I'm just playin with ya
Well, no I'm not (no I'm not)
Just do what I say cause if you even think of
Tryin' to pull a fast one on me promise you'll be sorry
Oh, my driver's calling, I can't miss my pick up"
That's when I did something stupid
And my jacket knocked over a can of soup and then
It got quiet did he hear me moving shh
Hold my breath he must of heard me do it huh?
I'm assuming the
Noise must of made em turn his head enough
To let the guy that was
At gunpoint grab his own gun now they both
Got weapons maybe I should help him
Sneak up slow and deck him
Time to go time to go time to go
It's goin' be a bloody miracle
Now or never, God, if I had any blessings coming
In my future could you send them to my present
Peak around the edge then I start running at him
He don't see me coming does he steppin'
Closer grab his neck and hold em
Squeezing on his throat
I'm tryin' to choke em then his elbow hits my nose an
Think he broke it
I think he broke it my
Blood is leaking all over my clothes I tried
Not to let go
But my hands begin to slip and bullets start to fly (Shot shot shot)
Can't see out my eyes
Cashier still alive?
I can't tell I'm tryin' to crawl away here comes another guy
He runs inside, like "Where's the money? Did you get the money?
Where's the bag you brought"
"I don't know, I think it's still behind the counter
Prolly by the cashier I just shot"
"Who's this on the floor? Who's this on floor?"
"I don't know"
"Well did they call the cops?"
He runs up to me then he grabs my shoulder
As he flips me over then my jaw it drops cause
I thought his voice sounded real familiar he's
Got a mask on but the shirt he's wearing
Is the same one he had on this morning
Staring in my eyes, I know he knows I know
Embarrassed, he stands above me and says
"Sorry, Erin, but I don't have a choice," he holds the barrel up
To my head I scream "You can't be serious"
He shakes his head and says "I'm sorry," then the gun
Get down, get on the ground
Cashier yells to ask if I'm ok he's dialing 911
I run over to him grab his phone and try to help him up
911, what's your emergency?
There's been a robbery the cashier was shot he needs an ambulance
He looks kind of pale, I think he might of lost a lot of blood
(Okay, help is on the way
Has anybody else been injured?)
Yeah, the robbers there were two of em
(Can you tell me their condition
Are they still alive?)
Well, I'm not really sure but they don't look so good
I'm pretty sure they're dead
Yeah, I think they're dead
(Alright take a deep breath
Everything's going to be okay
You're going to be alright)
