The lights are off but there’s a light in the corner
Earbuds block the outside sound but there’s no music playing
A sudden thump startles me
The lights go out, leaving me in darkness
I look around for a second
The thumps are getting louder
I turn towards the door
Everything goes silent
The thumps echo in my ear.
I stop breathing, the lights turn on, and the thumps stop
My heart stopped soon after.
