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!’
We knew what it was.
Could it really be our door?
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.
