We went outside. The teenagers were drunk and one threatened to kill me and burn the house down.
Alex ended up on the ground with all five yobs on him, kicking him in the head and stomach. I screamed for Colin and he came out, barefoot and half asleep. He ran back in and grabbed the first thing he saw, a letter opener, and confronted the boys. In the blink of an eye, the lads attacked Colin and I saw one stumble into the road.
