Tapestry, aka Tim
Right before midnight, the doorbell rang frantically, as if someone was desperately pushing it over and over in a fit of panic. I hurried to the door and went outside and-- nothing. The street was empty. There was no one in sight anywhere. |
I live in a quiet neighborhood. It's mostly retired folks all around me. I can't remember the last time we've been the target of youthful hijinks. There wasn't even a big football game on TV to inspire shenanigans. It was weird standing in the front yard in my bare feet, knowing somebody was probably watching me from distant shadows. "Very funny," I said to myself before coming back inside.
