Michelle quickly snatched Mark's arm and pulled him with her to his parent's room. She shoved him in forcefully. She said nothing, he had heard what
would happen if he left the room; there was no need for her to repeat it. Michelle grabbed the door handle and slammed it shut, quickly rushing
downstairs shortly after to finish getting ready. Her boyfriend would be arriving any minute.
Michelle had never done anything with a boy in anyone else's house. She had the reputation from the town of a nice, sweet, innocent, loving
babysitter; she didn't want to chance losing that by having a boy over. This time was different though, this job was an overnight babysitting. Mr.
and Mrs. Mcguil knew they would be too drunk to drive home, so they planned to stay at a hotel near the bar for the night. Michelle figured if she had
Tim, her boyfriend, over for a little while, she could get rid of him before the twin's parents returned. Even though Michelle had a good reputation
with the adults of the town, the other kids her age knew of her as "Man-Crazy Michelle." She got around a lot, at least that was her reputation.
Guys knew that if they had time alone with her it meant they would need "protection." She cut right to the chase and loved her reputation.
While Michelle was busy getting ready downstairs in the bathroom, Mark was upstairs plotting a way to escape without being caught. He knew that if he
opened the door there would be a chance she would hear it, and then he'd be in serious trouble. Mark finally decided just to wait till Michelle's
boyfriend arrived before he attempted any daring escapes. He knew that if Tim was here, she'd be busy, and if she was busy, he was free to do what he
wanted. Alice on the other hand loved Michelle for what she did with Mark. Finally Alice got the room to herself, no annoying twin brother to make
noises or mess with her stuff. She even put one of her stuffed animals on Mark's bed and told it how much better company it was than Mark.
A light flashed by Alice's window and caught her eye moments after she complimented the stuffed toy. Alice was curious of what that light was and
walked over to her window, leaning out slightly to get a better view. She looked down and laughed, noticing the broken action figures still on the
cement below. Her eyes then carefully traced the trees that lined her backyard. "Most have been my imagination", Alice said softly to herself. But
before she could lean back into the window she noticed a shadow far back, behind some trees. She starred at it for awhile, trying to make out what it
was, but before she could the object disappeared. This really freaked Alice out, and she quickly stumbled back from the window almost completely
wiping out. She raced from her room and down the steps, Michelle was walking from the bathroom at the same time. Alice hit into Michelle's side full
speed and fell to the ground. By now, Alice was completely drenched in her own tears. Michelle sighed and helped her up, trying to figure out what all
the commotion was about.
"What are you doing out of your room? And why are you crying?" Michelle questioned. Alice tried to talk, but her words were jumbled and unclear.
Michelle grabbed her by the arms and shook her slightly, trying to get the information out of her. "Come on, out with it," she demanded. Alice
sniffled and calmed her self down enough to be understood.
"I, I saw something outside," Alice stuttered out.
"Oh, that was probably just a squirrel," Michelle said but stopped abruptly and yelled, "damnit, it's probably Tim, he's here early!" Pushing
Alice back Michelle darted off back to the bathroom to finish getting ready. Alice though, knew that wasn't Tim outside, but maybe it was just an
animal. She was always very paranoid about these types of things and decided it was best just to forget about it. The one thing she knew was that she
definitely wasn't going to tell Mark about it. All he would did was make fun of her whenever she was afraid. She really hated him sometimes.
Alice decided to go back to her room and try to get some sleep. As Alice entered her room she swore she heard the sound of walking in the backyard,
but she was too afraid to check. She ran over to the window and shut it, closing her blinds too. "My imagination is just playing tricks on me,
that's it, yeah, that's it," Alice said reassuring herself as she changed into her pajamas. She then laid down under her covers. Alice closed her
eyes and tried to fall asleep. She did.
