It was hard to see in the dark, but I didn’t want to alert anyone that was inside spotlighting my presence, I crept forward closing the door behind me gently.
There wasn’t anyone in the front room or the kitchen and the back door was locked. If someone had made it inside, they’d had a key. Hopefully, Flora was still alive.
With a growing sense of dread, I pushed open the first bedroom door to a completely made bed and empty room.
Taking a deep breath, I glanced in the bathroom and moved on to the last closed door in her small place with my gun drawn, I eased the door open.
Flora was laying on the bed covered by a sheet or thin blanket. Her body moved with each breath so I knew that she was alive. I gently shook her shoulder, but there was no response.
“Hey, Flora. I’m here. You’re safe.” I spoke quietly, but it sounded so loud in the dark silence.
Walking back out to the other room, I still held my gun loosely in case I’d missed something, but all was exactly as it had been the first time I’d walked through.
There weren’t many ways to keep someone from breaking in like I had, but I placed a kitchen chair under the door knobs so that it would make enough noise to alert me from Flora’s room.
Even though the other room held an unused bed, I knew that I wasn’t going to leave Flora’s side until the sun rose. I did grab the pillows and light blanket to make a pallet on the floor next to her bed. “
