I slowly walked up the creaky steps step by step. The walls were full of artwork. I felt myself in mid air - all I could see was black. Suddenly I felt the sensation of falling, like the time I stumbled off my neighbours trampoline and broke my arm. Bang! Crack! My head hit a ledge and I fell heavily to the ground.
I woke up to find I was in a room full of priceless treasure. There were diamonds, pearls and gold necklaces. Suddenly I could hear footsteps and voices. One voice said "We need to move it soon".
Another voice said "Why not tomorrow night?"
I needed to get out of there soon and ring the cops. I stood up and scanned the room for ways out. My eyes noticed an old cobwebbed window that was partly open. I hoisted myself up and whilst I was halfway through the opening - 'crack' the window broke and the glass shattered. I heard footsteps so I quickly jumped for it.
As I stood up I dashed for the bushes to hide in. I saw the two familiar faces of my neighbours, Bob and Robyn Ramsbottom. I had known for some time that they were up to no good. Now my suspicions were confirmed.area. I poked my head through the hedge to check if they had gone.
I quickly darted over the fence and back to my place. As I was dialling 111 to speak with the cops the doorbell went. Ding dong, ding dong. I dropped the phone and I called out "hello" in a surprised tone.
The next thing I heard Bob say "Its me Dave, open up". I slowly eased the door open with my foot left in the opening. "Hi Bob it's not a great time as I was just about to go out".
