I am sitting still. Too much silence unnerved me. The door opens slightly.
A human form appears, covered in black from head to toe. I feel the sweat running down like a stream from my head towards the nape of my neck. I feel vulnerable and weak.
‘Don’t even think of moving’ says a gruff voice. It is more terrifying. My mind is blank, stopped working I guess. I forgot to blink. I forgot to breathe.
Suddenly there is a chilling sound of glass crashing to ground. My maid, watching TV through the kitchen door.
I turn off the TV. Phew!
