Chapter 1 - Alex
My heart is thundering in my chest. The drumming in my ears so loud I can not hear anything else. I mustn't move. Shadows intercept the thin strip of light coming in through the gap between the cupboard door and the floor. My heart stops. They must be there for but a few seconds although it feels like a lifetime.
A few minutes after the danger had passed I decide it is safe and I take my hand off of Bella's mouth, and release her from my tight grip. She looks up at me with wide eyes, questioning our situation. I let out a long sigh of relief and start to laugh. A laugh that relaxes my tensed muscles. Pure joy that I was alive.
Bella is shocked at first, puzzled by my sudden outburst, but then she throws her arms around my neck and clings to me in a tight hug. Her joy mirroring my own. We only have each other now, and I'm not going to let anything happen to her. I hold my little sister close, wrap my arms around her and bury my face in her thick auburn hair.
