My mom was cooking the family pizza and the bottom started to burn so we had to open the doors to let out the smoke, we closed the doors and ate dinner, later that night my dad went to bed, my niece went to bed after him, my brother and mom put in ‘Jeepers Creepers 2’ and fell asleep. I was listening to music, glancing up at the TV, and on my favorite chatroom :D and I stopped listening to music for a while fine and then I heard the doorknob jiggle, froze, ran to close the blinds on the two kitchen windows and checked the backdoor to make sure it was locked too scared to tell my sleeping mother and brother who were only inches from the backdoor and I were. I hid by my kitchen table and cried praying that he didn’t get in I heard him go from the front to the back, back to the front before I woke my brother and mom up in tears telling them what I heard. My mom went upstairs to check through the window to see if she could see anyone I calmed down the best I could while my 4th brother looked out the windows and saw our dog on the side of the house he told me to stay where I was and went upstairs I cried a little more and calmed back down. We realized that he got out when the doors were open and had been outside for hours before finally trying to get back in my hitting the door, my dog…gotta love him haha :D
my family told me to yell for help if that ever happened again while they were sleeping, we joked laughed, and went on with the night, it did NOT help that I had a dream about if there really was a man outside, I saw him through my parents window and saw a figure of a man standing outside staring back up at me.
I will NEVER forget that night!
