Excerpt

A Do Not Disturb sign hung from the door handle. Cute. I walked in to waste more time and see how they decorated this room. The walls covered with wallpaper were of different sports memorabilia. It seemed like a typical boy’s room with trophies, sports equipment, and toy model airplanes hanging from the ceiling.

Wait a minute. I looked back at the trophies, checking the nameplates; they didn’t have names on any of them.

I heard a scraping noise by the hallway, so I quickly turned around but, once again, saw nothing. Either I’m losing my mind or just paranoid. At least that’s what I thought until I noticed the Do Not Disturb sign swinging back and forth from the doorknob.

Someone is in this house with us, worse yet, in this room with me now. I heard nothing nor did I see anyone, but I sensed it, and it was not a welcoming feeling.

I had my hands up, braced for anything that came at me. I slowly eased my way back across the room, my back close to the wall, inching toward the door, breath on hold. As soon as both feet touched the hallway, the door slammed shut behind me, and all the lights in the house died.

In total darkness, I jetted full speed in the hall and down the stairs, and then swung open the basement door, popping the hinges, the whole time sensing someone near me.

What were we thinking breaking into this house? We clearly did not think this through.

I pulled on the statue opening the door to the room. Tony was the first one out, with Byron a close second, both asking what gives.

Out of breath, I told them to wrap it up now, but they stood there looking bewildered.

“Now! We have company, and we are not welcomed.” I then pulled on the statue to shut the door, not waiting around. They quickly wrapped it up and hurried out as the door was closing in on them. They followed suit, running after me, no questions asked, the whole time still sensing something near me.

  13. A very interesting premise! Taking an underachieving teenager and making her an overachiever is a story in itself but throw her in a group of like minded peers and add an enemy for unknown reasons and you've got a thrilling story.
