It was a normal night for Jon. Parents and brother out. He was home alone. Per usual. But someone broke into his house.

The Break In

by Harper Callix

Jon sighed and shut off his playstation.

It was 10 PM

His Parents should be back by now...

Shouldn't They

They probably got too drunk


Jon shook his head as he crawled into his bed.

They would probably be home around noon tomorrow

He hated when his parents got drunk

It was as if they didn't care about him anymore.


Jon Heard a noise

It sounded like it was coming from the kitchen.



Jon listened closely

Someone was downstairs

Surely it wasn't his parents.

The car was loud and he would've seen the headlights.

It wasn't his brother either.

He was sleeping over at a friends house for the weekend. His brother wasn't known for forgetting stuff.

Jon's heart sped up

Someone had Broken in...

Jon slowly sat up, walking over to his door.

He slowly pulled it open.

Jon peered down the dark hallway.

And Then he noticed

The noises had stopped

Jon Gulped.

He slowly made his way down the hall.

He stopped.

The light at the bottom of the staircase turned on.

Jon stood frozen in fear

Then he heard footsteps slowly coming up the steps.

Jon didn't know what to do. His feet wouldn't move.

He was stuck

A figure appeared. But whoever it was...

Didn't seem quite human...

It's arms seemed to long on it's body and it's torso seemed


More twisted than what an ordinary person could do

The thing didn't see Jon


At this time. Jon panicked and ran for his room.

He closed his door as quietly and quickly as he could.

Jon threw himself into his closet.

A cliché Hiding spot from horror movies but it was all that he had in his room.

Jon tried to quiet his loud breathing

But the slow, loud, footsteps getting closer did not help.

Jon thought about his phone.

He could call the police. Anybody

Jon got a horrible feeling in his gut...

Would they make it on time?

Jon stood in his closet for a second more.

He opened the closet door and quickly ran to his bed lifting his phone.

It was dead.

A feeling of dread washed over Jon.

The footsteps quicked.


Thump. Thump

Thump. Thump. Thump. Thump. Thump. Thump. Thump.

Once again, Jon couldn't move.

But oddly...

He didn't want to.

The Footsteps stopped outside Jon's bedroom door.


It stayed like that for a moment.


The door creeked open slowly...

Jon didn't move

He looked at the creature that now stood fully exposed

Still, Jon didn't move

He still didn't want to.

In fact...

Jon seemed to accept the fact that this creature had come...

But then. Jon remembered.

He had been waiting...
