Almost

Almost

One time I almost got abducted. I was 14 and my friend and I were walking to the movies. A guy stopped and asked if we needed a ride. We said we were going to the movies and he said he was too. He didn’t stop at the movie. He kept going. We told him to stop, but he wouldn’t. Eventually we came to stop sign. We jump out of the car and ran. He didn’t come after us. I don’t know if he was really going to abduct us, or just scare us.
