My eyes popped open to see someone had opened the door. He was standing with the ambient light behind him, highlighting his large frame as it filled the doorway. The intruder’s chest heaved with every exhale, and I could feel his eyes boring into me from the shadows of his face. I closed my eyes again thinking this was all a dream. There was a rush going through my ears, and all I could hear was the beating of my heart.
