Sounds

Just a story.

L. E. White

Sounds

Terry squeezed her eyes shut, balling up her fists and pressing them against the sides of her head. Her whole body shook and she could hear the little plastic ends of her shoe laces tapping against the floor as they trembled with her.

When the front door opened, the shaking stopped. Her body froze, not even breathing, as the sound of the old hinges bounced down the hallway.

The step was soft, making almost no sound, but she heard each nail click as they came down on the old boards. Terry gasped and then bit her lip before she heard another set of clicks.

They were closer.
