It was a cold November night, my mom works over time every week so by the weekends she goes to the Casino to distract her self and hopes she’ll bring back some extra cash. So at this point my mom had already left, and my older Brother had went out with his friends. I was completely alone only being 1:30 it had been 2 hours later since everyone left the house. I decided to watch “To all the boys I’ve loved before ” a try since all my friends/media hyped it up. I was at the part where peter took lana by the hand leading her to the party. When I heard something out of my window sounding like footsteps so I lowered the volume and turned off my mini lamp and peaked outside -nothing was there. This time I kept watching the movie when it happened again- I turned off the tv and was about to look, it was so much louder than before. This time I panicked and heard whatever it was running towards my front door jiggling the knob of the door – I went to get the house phone and call my uncle since I knew neither my mom or Brother would pick up at this time but I knew my uncle would and he only lives one block away from me he answered and I told him the whole situation. 3 minutes passed and heard honking I got all my stuff and looked out side -there was no one outside so I ran to the old pick up truck got inside and told him to step on it- I took a little peak at my front door when there was an old guy that looked mentally challenged having a dirty look in his face and what I could see a knife in his hands.
The next morning I had slept on my uncles couch and had manny missed calls from my mom. So I called her back and she was extremely worried -I explained everything to her and telling me she’d be on her way to pick me up. My uncle was gone and I couldn’t find him anywhere. My mom was waiting for me so I locked the door hoping he went out or something and left his house and never heard back from him ever again.
