24. Home

A sudden flood of fear exploded in the pit of my rumbling stomach. The feeling made me feel slightly uncomfortable. Closing my eyes because of the pain was building up, I could hear the comforting noise of sighs and the rustling paper that my father held rather tight in his large, strong hands.

With my eyes tightly shut, I moved under the blanket. Covering my head with the airless feeling the material felt in my weak and trembling hand.

Soon I fell into a warm and happy slumber, relaxing to the sound of the still rustling paper that my father had clutched tightly in his hand.

The last noise that I heard was one of that my father made; standing up, the chair creeking noisily under his weight. He stumbled aimlessly to the large , wooden door. As he opened it, several noises rung in my ears. Shouting and worried footsteps quickly elapsed as my door slammed shut.
