I hear the clock, “tick, tock, tick, tock.” It is 2:00am; there are no sounds outside, it is like Earth has stopped running. I lay in my bed trying to sleep, but I get the strangest feeling that someone is watching me. No creaks on the floor, no snoring from my parent’s bedroom, no rain plopping onto my window or roof. Complete silence. Suddenly, I hear a crashing noise inside my kitchen, “CRASH!” It sounded like something broke. I get out of bed, put on my slippers and robe and run out of my room! I creep down the stairs making no creaks! I run with fear to the kitchen and my heart rate drops.
