It’s what I do now. Babysit.

Except today my Mom was sick and so my Sista didn’t want to bring my nephew here, so my bro-in-law was gonna pick me up to babysit at their house. That was thirty-four minutes ago.

Now I’m sitting at the computer and waiting for a car to pull into our driveway and someone to knock on our front door.

It’s not happening.

So far two shadows that looked like people flashed across the front room curtains, inspiring my cat Tiger Lily to stare at them in wonder and purr by the curtains. Every time they went by I thought it was my bro-in-law, so I got up to check, and NOTHING. No sign of any life whatsoever. It kinda freaked me out. Especially since I’m pretty much home alone right now. Ignoring the cats. And my mom who is trying to sleep off her cold.

I hope the shadows don’t get me.


….if you don’t hear from me again, you know what happened.

The shadows are invading! INVADING!!!

RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
