228.Hiding From the Robber
This had turned out to be the scariest day of Tonya's life. She wanted to turn tail and run, but if she moved from where she was hiding the robber would see her. As it was, even a little twist and turn might cause some noise he might hear!
Tonya had been hiding for twenty minutes when she decided to turn the tables on the robber. When he turned his back on her she threw a pen against the opposite wall—it seared the robber and he didn't know what to do!
First he put the clock back that he had been planning on stealing, turned off the lights and then, to Tonya's surprise, came over and turned on the stereo. Then he turned up the volume and started looking for who had thrown the pen. He was obviously intent on finding that person and hurting him or her!
She suddenly wished that she could turn the clock back and not have thrown that pen! That had turned into a very bad move!
Then, as he came closer, Tonya suddenly turned over to get ready to run. She unfortunately bumped the lamp and, as she twisted around to see the robber about to grab her, it hit him smack on the head.
He was knocked unconscious. Tonya stood up, not believing what she saw. Then she turned over the robber to see who it was. She gasped! It was her boyfriend!
It would be sad to turn him over to the police. But she did!
