You hear a noise somewhere…

I woke up in the middle of the night.
”Five! Four!”
I heard something outside. I didn’t dare to look out my window.
”Three! Two!”
I couldn’t resist! What was going to happen after one? But I can’t look out my window, its 4:58am and it wasn’t a good time to turn on the light.
”One!”
I heard a click and a bang..
The lights come on. I stood alone in my room, shaking. I shrank into my knees, wrapping myself with my arms. I rubbed my arms to get rid of the goose bumps.

After composing myself, I decided to go outside and see what happened. I silently sneaked outside and stood in shock. There was a human body laying in blood. I ran in horror and disgust. I rushed to the phone and dialled the number ‘999’.

In no time the police came, but once they went to the area were the crime was committed. The body was gone. No one ever believed me after that…

    Hi
    You have built the tension very well with the count down of the numbers. I also like the cliff hanger at the end.

    Is this an entry for Week#10 of 100wc? I can’t see the prompt.
