Tom jumped behind the nearest ripped couch, terrified. A thought came through his head. Why was he doing all this? He could have simply just went home when he was bored instead of agreeing to come in here. Then, there was a flash of light, then, darkness again. It all happened within about a split second. He peeked out from behind the couch and everything seemed to be calm. Out of nowhere, he did something that required all the courage he could muster. He jumped out from behind the couch and made a run for it. As he flung the window open, he took one last look back and then jumped. A smooth landing, and then he ran. He wouldn’t ever go in there again!
