Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
This meme was created for bloggers to spotlight posts they published in the week, as well as to talk about what they plan to write in the week that’s coming.
Sunday post is also great opportunity to showcase books we got in the week behind us.
I am not fine.
You have probably noticed that I am not active all that much in the blogosphere, nor am I enthusiastic for the HoHoHo Readathon, which is really ashame, because it is my favorite readathon and Christmas books are my favorite, but something happened and it took all the joy from me, at least for now.
On Thursday I was attacked in front of my own building. Some would say that by using the word attack I’m overreacting, but this is what it was, and I will tell you the whole story here.
Usually, there are always people in somewhere around my building because we have 18 floors, but this time there were no one. That evening Croatian football team played a game vs Spain, so everyone was probably in front of their TVs, plus it was pretty cold outside,
I was already walking up the stairs that lead to the entrance when I heard steps behind me and I remember thinking how the person is too close to me. I didn’t turn around but walked and when I stopped to unlock the main door, I one again thought that the person is too close, it was like I could feel his breath, and I knew it was a male.
Then, I heard some unfamiliar sound, that reminded me of that sound that comes when you open a coca cola bottle, but it was different, and I felt something like electricity on my left shoulder and there was that unique smell, and the first thing that crossed my mind was that I was electroshocked, but somehow I was still here, awake. I turned around and the guy had his hands in his pockets, his head was looking down and he went away, but I saw his profile.
I run into my building, and in the mirror in the elevator I saw that my jacket was splashed with some sort of smelly liquid.
I don’t know it that was an acid or maybe some kind of drug that can put you into sleep, but what I do know that I was a target, and who knows what could have happened if I turned around while I was unlocking the door, maybe that liquid was aimed for my face, and maybe I wouldn’t even be alive now.
Our lock was broken only few days ago and it took really long time to unlock it, but that fix it only one day before the attack happened, so maybe my attacker didn’t now it was fixed.
What kills me now I don’t know what was his motive. Has he mistaken me for another girl, is he a psychopath who was using the situation when no one was around, and I was the one who was at the wrong place at the wrong time?
And the worst case scenario: am I the target. He could be following me around for 6 months and I didn’t have a clue.
And next time, what if he succeeds in his mission?
I am afraid for my own life, and the fact that he knows where I live and that he attacked me in front of my own building terrifies me.
That is all from me. Let’s hope next week and months you will be able to read my posts, but if they stop without a word… I don’t even want to think about it, but at the same time, I can’t stop thinking about it.
Btw, there were some changes in my blogging schedule because of the request from one of the publishers, so this is why you didn’t get a review for Not Just for Christmas, but got A Christmas Date instead.
Last Week on Book Dust Magic:
Monday: I reviewed The Storm Runner by J.C. Cervantes
Wednesday: I talked about my trip to Budapest
Friday: I reviewed A Christmas Date by Camilla Isley
Next Week on Book Dust Magic:
I will also talk about my #HoHoHoRat wrap up.
I was at a book festival so I bougt myself 4 books, two in English and two in Croatian.
I started this book yesterday but I haven’t read all that much. It seems like a good Christmas book so far!
That is it!
Let me know what’s been going on with you, what you’ve been reading or watching this week and feel free to leave your links so I can visit you.
Have a lovely Sunday!
