The Road Behind

Story Sent in by Tess:

Jason contacted me over Match and we chatted for a few days before he asked me out. I arrived at the cafe first and when he showed up he sat across from me, folded his hands, said, "Let's end this," and stared at me without another word.

I replied, "Um... what are you talking about?"

He then passed a sealed envelope to me and stood up. "This is for the road ahead. I wish you good fortune."

Then he left. I opened the envelope. Inside it was a piece of paper cut in the shape of a... sword? At least that's what it looked like. As it turned out, I never wound up needing it for the road ahead.
