One day I was in my room writing and listening to
music. I was all alone: no parents, no sisters, just me. It was really
relaxing, not hearing my parents shout my name or having my sisters
coming in and out my room. I was basically having the time of my life,
but that got ruined. Someone was knocking.
I checked the window and I saw a lady. She had dark circles around her

“Ughh.. What do you want?” I said while opening the door.
“I want you to turn down your music!” she said, screaming right in my

feel my hand. I took a deep breath and opened the door once again. There
wasn’t anyone. Then I heard a knock on the back door. “Oh no,” I
