The Knock

The Knock

Bang Bang Bang!!

There was a loud knock at the door.

Stark. Echoing. Ringing. Enough to rattle the frame.

Instantly awake. Upright. Senses straining. Disbelieving.

According to the bedside clock it was 3.30 a.m.

BANG BANG BANG!!    ‘OPEN UP!’

Wide awake.

We knew what it was.

Could it really be our door?

Surely not.

Why here?

Mind racing.

Were we imagining it?

BANG  BANG BANG!!! OPEN UP!!!

Loud enough to wake the street

Not next door.

Not down the street.

Not the Goldsmiths. Not the Patels. Not Jones the convenor.

Our door!

This door!
