2. Seeing things
I woke to the sound of someone knocking at the door. It was 2:10, and that was a unusual time for someone to be walking around. Especially in the middle of a field.
Maybe it was a lost hiker or something, I couldn't be bothered to get up. So I turned over and fell back into a dreamless sleep.
'Ugh!' I groaned, stuffing a pillow over my head.
*Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat* There it was again.
I shuffled downstairs and peeped through the letterbox. Nothing was there.
I was starting to get freaked out at this point, so when I turned round I hurtled up the stairs and jumped back into bed, pulling the cover's right up to my nose.
*Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat* Once again, there it was.
I was getting annoyed now, I jumped out of bed and stormed down the dusty staircase.
I yanked open the front door and scanned the dark fields.
I slammed it shut and turned on my heel.
I froze on the spot, I'm sure I missed a heartbeat
