A Scary Surprise


Source

Genre: Fiction
Word Prompt- Thief (Fiction in Five sentences)
I threw myself on the bed, dog tired after my busy day had  chosen to wind with a power cut, leaving my cell phone out of charge.

On a stormy night with all sorts of scary sounds- of rain, wind and thunder, I also heard the door knock once, twice and many more times - my gut clenched and my heart began to miss  beats -one after the other.

Fear gripped and  I soak in beads of perspiration, wondering if it was the thief or the ghost, forcing me to recall my karate moves as I cursed the fact that I had no phone to call the police or the neighbour aunt.

Mustering some courage and holding a knife tight in my right fist, a roti stick in the left, I slowly peeked in the door lens to watch the impending danger.

I heaved a sigh of relief as I saw my lovely husband standing outside-dripping in rain, a bunch of red roses in one hand and a cake box in other to surprise me on my birthday for which he had come back early from his business trip.
