The lock on the door was broken, so I let myself in. There was no light in the house it seemed as I eased the door open and swept my hand against the wall feeling my way to a light switch. I flipped it on. Nothing happened. No light. No sound. Nothing.
I sensed something was very wrong here as soon as my feet touched the ground. I had arrived at 7 pm as requested.
The moment the soles of my shoes touched the gravel I felt as if the world would suddenly crumble away from beneath me and I would be thrust into some kind of abysmal nightmare. That’s the best way I can describe the anxiety I felt at that moment.
