All alone in the office

What do I fear? It’s a common question, but not one that I really put much thought into. I don’t really fear anything. Do I hope I don’t get attacked or in an accident or kidnapped or something far worse? Sure, but its not something I dwell on. Yesterday for example would have been a potential for “fear”.

I was the only one in the office for the last hour of the day. Our office isn’t in the best part of town and the whole wall has windows. But it wasn’t the “typical” that I see daily that I had to deal with but a creeper that was coming in to see a co worker who had already left. Needless to say, this creeper turned his creeper meter up the moment he saw me and lets just say all pleasantries were dropped the moment he said his first sentence.

My mind was working fast in preparation, my adrenaline began pumping to the point of stumbling over my words while working on appearing calm, but I was getting ready to do what I had to do if he attempted anything. It was an effort to get him to leave and unfortunately he had to return to drop something off, and I wasn’t looking forward to that. When he did, he continued his creeper status which only proved to make me angrier, which actually worked in my favor to remain calm.

A part of me was annoyed I was the only one in the office since it put me at risk, but the other part of me was glad since no one had to witness how I handled him. My co workers only know me one way, the nice quiet person I am at work, and let’s just say my ‘sweet’ reputation would have been tarnished had any of them been around yesterday.

But in all honesty, I wasn’t afraid. Maybe its because I’ve been around far worse, that I knew I could handle it, but being alone in the office, on the edge of downtown, where druggies, gang members and the lot walk by daily, doesn’t really scare me. Annoy me, yes. Scare me, no.

Would it scare you?

What does scare you or bring you the greatest fear?

that is kind of freaky! I seriously hate when guys are creepers like that. I never know what to do. Love the verse, though, and I am reminded that we have NOTHING to fear.

that would scare me! I'm glad you put him in his place though!!!! haha what I said for the challenge was puking. I seriously actually am scared of puking. But of course, I think the unspoken overriding fear is losing someone really close to me.

It would have scared me! Everything scares me. Fear is a huge downfall of mine.
