People out of the darkness my…

People from the of my girlfriend at the time lived in an old three-storey hostel corridor type even the Stalinist buildings in General, the 53rd and 54th have been fruitful for architecture in the city — I the whole Central part in those two was built I remember that night it was spring, the day the snow melted and there were the first of the puddles, and in the evening, everything froze and turned into a solid ice crust I came home late from work and wanted only to hurry to be home can’t remember now what I really wanted to see on the Internet — maybe a new movie or something, but when it became clear that in most parts of the city there was no light, I just freaked out as soon As I got off the bus, I immediately appreciated the scale of what off: no lights were in the houses, not working street lighting, shops, temporarily closed because cash registers also needed a power That is remarkable, in some places the light was still: that’s a nine with a burning at the entrance of the lantern and in the distance, the light, coming from the forecourt, but, like an oasis in the middle of the street lit stall I Remember, made me laugh, as in this stall from miles around massed people for a beer — honest to God, an oasis But actually it looked a bit creepy and unpleasant, I stomped on the dark street, careful not to slip and not break something, and without much curiosity watched the candles and lanterns that appear in one, then in another window, Twice I have called the phone: first asked me to buy some candles, if you can find a running store, then a friend of the couple said that they are going to visit us After a conversation with the last, I rolled into the yards to cut In General, now there was no more and no less dark than on the main street As luck would have it, the night was moonless, could not see a thing I walked along the culvert when someone called me: — Hey! I froze, not so much frightened as indignant at the impoliteness of the invisible — What is it? Hey! Of course, I didn’t like that much, but I still went to the call without any second thoughts to shoot a Cigarette or small things to throw in that I never refused Soon the darkness appeared the outline of two people, where one could see the silhouettes of men and women I could not distinguish neither their clothes, nor, especially of persons noted only that they are below me, and strangely rocking — What do you want? — Want a drink? Let’s have a drink? It happens sometimes I believe I was approached by a man his Voice was a bit strange, but if you sue, what else could be the voice offering this to the first passerby? — No, thanks I don’t drink — let’s drink, — said the interlocutor — No Luck — I turned and stomped away — Hey! — they walked after him — let’s drink Once again from his voice became more insistent He kept repeating it, like a cipher, which I had to respond — Holy shit, I said — no Go your way, is not made — Then maybe sex? — invited the I was dumbfounded are They really nerds? — Yes, then maybe sex? — said the man — Or a drink? Are you totally e tide?! — I growled — Get out of here! I added a step, but felt that the crazy me is rapidly catching up, and prepared to fight — And maybe you need money? Come with us, we have the money — fuck you! At this moment two silhouettes appeared on the right and left of me the Man grabbed my wrist with an iron grip, and the shoved a palm in the chest, I still hadn’t seen their faces — what do you want from me? — I was scared — we Have the money, go with us, bugger Off! Struggled I ran, barely freed and quickly ran to the side of the house Despite the fact that I kind of wish I had not pursued, I ran up to the door Opener Doorphone, of course, didn’t work I ducked inside and found themselves in pitch darkness the front it Should be noted that it was the front, not the entrance Stairwell was located a little to the side, and no window even poor light I took a breath, trying to gather my thoughts Which only loonies will not find in the dark courtyards of the provincial towns! From above, meanwhile, heard the voices of the neighbors who had gathered to smoke and discuss the accident that happened at one of the substations That calmed and relaxed me, I once again sighed and slowly trudged to the stairs, when suddenly… Hey! At first I was just stunned They could not physically to race me Even if I overtook, I noticed them coming in the door Even in the dark I would have noticed them! Hey! Come with us! It has sounded back With the speed of a Sprinter, I flew to the top flight and not paying attention to the surprised looks of the neighbors, rushed to their doors, the Duo were sitting and something softly spoken in the dark, drinking a beer, I closed the door on all the locks and helplessly on the couch, Drank beer, and only then told about the incident — Count! — Kate laughed — we went! — Assholes some snorted Roma Right, you telling me We just came out of the house and here it is: “Hey! Come with us!” It was at least an amazing coincidence I got myself together, had a little more Meanwhile, in the course of the conversation was necessary in this situation jokes: “bums of the third looking for”, “schoolchildren Internet passed out”, “have to go, it’s not every day such proposals pour” and so on, two Hours later turned on the light, We still, Katya and Roma called a taxi and went home with Olga, We went to bed, and I have long tossed and remembered these strange people out of the darkness Officially nothing was announced, but as was hammered into my vapor Latin “Haud semper errat fama,” that is not always the rumor wrong somewhere from friends who are police officers somewhere from relatives soon became known that that night missing more than sixty people Later twelve of them were found: someone left his wife to his mistress, he ran away from home, drunk worker into a manhole and broke his neck and so it’s been more than a year, but others have not found Any trace of Fifty men in a small town, four hours is Not just me and Katya and Roma met in the night of these suspicious types Many tell similar to my story of Course, maybe it’s all an incredible coincidence, the mass schizophrenia and all that But even so… Even if this is so, then what happened to another fifty people that night, just as I was coming home? Disturbing rumors still go around the kitchen and back rooms of our town, I stopped listening to them because increasingly difficult to distinguish in them the truth from fiction
