I ran quickly and glanced behind me. I could hear the count down...7...6...5... My mind was racing...4...3...2...1. I whipped around and jumped through a doorway.
I closed the door as quietly as I could. It was dark and musty. I was breathing loudly. I tried to stifle my breath. No use. I shifted my position. Shadows began forming in the light, creeping under the door. My breath finally slowed to a steady pace. I could feel it pounding.
Walking outside the door, I closed my eyes. It took effort just make sure I didn't move. My eyes opened. Voices came from outside. One of the shadows stopped in front of the door. Slowly the doorknob turned. The door flew open and I heard my sister yell triumphantly, "Found you!" I chuckled as I stepped out of the closet.
My sister turned and ran down the hallway as I began to count.
