He called my mobile on the hour, every hour. He rang. I picked up. He waited for a moment then hung up. All I heard was a man's shallow breathing then one word: 'Soon.' It had been going on for a week. He rang during the day. He rang during the night. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't think. The only respite was when my parents were in the room. Then I would get a text. It was the same word. 'Soon.' Ten minutes ago something changed. He rang on the hour. He waited for a moment. Before he hung up he said a single word. This time it wasn't 'Soon.' It was 'Now.'
