Once again the knock came, and it was much more insistent this time. “Hello, who is it?” she called out. The silence on the other side was deafening, the only thing she could make out was the gusting wind. “I will not open the door if you don’t tell me who you are!”
Listening intently she could hear a scuffling sound, what in the world could that be? Still no one answered her. What should she do, she was home alone and was told to open the door for no one.
The knocking came once again, this time June mustered up her courage and looked out the window in the door to see who it was. She was shocked to see no one; there was no one out there. What was happening? She began to shake with fear. Someone was out there and they were trying to scare her, they must know that I am alone, she thought. Why would anyone do this to me?
Her thoughts were racing like a raging wildfire as she ran around the house inspecting the window and doors making sure they were all secure. “This isn’t funny”, she called out. “Someone will be home very soon and you will get caught and go to jail, so if I were you I would go away now while you can.”
Silence, nothing but the wind outside she noticed that it had started to snow nothing was sticking on the ground yet, but she was sure that it would. She sat down on the couch and thought about turning on the television, and then I might not hear if someone was breaking in. so, she sat in silence and listened.
He stood outside in the darkness, with the wind swirling around him. The darkness suited him as he stood there brooding. She loved him and he knew it, why would she keep denying her feelings? He watched as she ran around the house checking the windows and doors, she shouldn’t be afraid, I love her, I would never hurt her. Yet, still he could see the fear in her eyes he tried to convince himself that the fear was not of him, but of being alone. You will not have to be alone much longer, love; we will be together very soon. Very soon…. He retreated into the darkness.
