Knock! knock!

There I was sitting on the couch watching TV at 2:00am in the morning. I decided to get some thing to eat. When I opened my pantry I heard a screeching at the front door I thought it would just the wind until I heard some thing bigger come along. It was a big knock on the front door. I was so scared I started bowling.

After that, I went to my brotherís room to sit with him for a while. But he didnít let me in. When I was at his door telling about some one pounding on the door. He said that it was better just to leave it alone. I followed his commands. I went back to watching TV.

Until I heard that horrible racket coming from the back door. I bolted to my brotherís room almost destroying his door. He screamed and asked what I wanted. I said that it was coming again. He said to chill ax I said ďfine, if it comes one more time I will shout ď.

Suddenly the phone rang. I was wondering why people would be calling at 2:00 in the morning. I answered the phone and no one was there. I heard noises coming from the outside .I did not know what to do. So I went in my sisterís room (kaylin). Her window was opened. I was so worried about what happened to her. I pumped my legs up the stairs to my moms room to go tell her what was happening. I woke everybody in the house. My step dad (don) took his gun. I could not resets the noise .when I opened the door it was my sister kaylin who got locked out of the house. I was so shocked I never ever slept down stairs again!!!!!! !!
