The Intruder

1. Running Upstairs

Jace and Maci were in the living room when they heard a loud crash coming from upstairs. Their hearts racing, they immediately knew something was wrong. Without hesitation, they both sprinted up the stairs, the sound of their footsteps echoing through the house.

As they reached the top of the stairs, they saw that the door to the bedroom was slightly ajar. Jace pushed it open with one swift movement, revealing a scene of chaos inside. Clothes were strewn across the floor, the dresser drawers pulled out and emptied.

“Oh no, the window is open!” Maci exclaimed in disbelief, pointing to the window that was wide open. They both knew what that meant – someone had broken into their home. Without wasting another moment, they began searching the room frantically for any signs of the intruder.

Every creak of the floorboards made their hearts skip a beat, their minds on high alert. Jace grabbed a baseball bat from behind the door while Maci dialed 911 on her cellphone. They were determined to protect their home and each other, no matter what it took.

Time seemed to slow down as they awaited the arrival of the authorities, their adrenaline still pumping. The unknown intruder was still out there, but they were ready to face whatever may come their way.
