Story-A-Day #336: Thursday The 13th
THURSDAY THE 13TH
Everyone knows that Friday the 13th is supposed to be an unlucky day. Folklore, urban legends, and even Hollywood with its hockey masked killer and his mother, have helped propagate the legend of that one particular day. What most don't seem to realize is that the "unlucky" actually is hinged to the number and not the day.
Take today for example; a beautiful October afternoon with the sun shining down and unseasonably warm temperatures. It is a perfect day for a walk in the woods. It is a perfect day for a nice stroll in the woods, to admire the fall foliage in its resplendent shades of yellow, orange, and red.
Look, here is a person now who has decided to take advantage of the day with just such an excursion. She is young and vibrant, full of life. Her dark hair cascades beautifully around her perfectly made up face. Her tight yoga pants cling perfectly to the curves of her hips, buttocks, thighs, and calves. You can see every rippling motion of her firm young musculature just beneath the surface of the clinging black fabric. Her moderately sized breasts push out against her equally tight top, obvious even with the loose jacket she wears on top.
She is a picture of perfection, a healthy and happy young woman who is excited to be spending a languid afternoon on the trails.
She is probably thinking about the upcoming weekend, and the fun she will have with her friends. Maybe she is even thinking about a guy from work and how she hopes he will bring her home this weekend for a bit of debauched non-committal copulation. Then again, maybe she's not the type...
Either way, it doesn't matter because she won't live to see the weekend. You see, today is her unlucky day because she is not alone on these secluded trails. I am there with her, a few short strides behind, and I know that the bright sunshine, and warm weather is a mere misdirection. Everything seems perfect, but in a reality, it is far from it.
Today is Thursday the 13th, and for this beautiful young specimen, it is definitely an unlucky day.
