~A shadow moved by the bedroom window catching Ralph’s attention. Alex had left the window ajar and forgot to lock it shut. Two eyes saw the snarling dog through the window pane as he passed on. Ralph was determined. He nudged his nose under the window frame moving it up an inch.
Jan could feel her heart pounding so hard, she thought it might jump on out. “Calm down, take a deep breath,” she told herself.
One of the porch floor boards creaked, where Alex had it repaired, as the man edged closer to the front door.
Ralph, struggling as hard as he could at the raised window frame, managed to get his head clear over the sill. His barking and drooling motivated him on to see where that man went.
“Jan, Jan Sterling, I just want to talk to you,” the man called out, standing to the side of the doorway. He didn’t believe this job would be a problem, but better to be safe than sorry.
“Come on Jan, I know you are in there,” he enticed.
“Who are you? What do you want?” Jan yelled back.
“I’m just a friend of Rosorio, he wants to see you. I won’t hurt you.”
“Go away, I’ve got a gun!” Jan threatened.
This will be harder to accomplish, he thought. Since the dog he saw through the window appeared to be contained, the man tried again.
“You don’t want to hurt me. I’m just the messenger,” the stranger shouted back pulling out his long range phaser emitter from his holster inside his jacket. These types of illegal firearms disrupted the victim’s nervous system.
Ralph, now panting hard, had twisted and squirmed around until he was upside down halfway through the window. Surprising himself when his front paws pushed the glass frame up releasing his energy as he tumbled out of the window.
The man decided at that moment to slam his foot at the wooden door breaking it open. The front door swung with such force it crashed against the inside wall.
Jan raised her weapon as the shadow of the man stood there raising his hands.
“Look, I’ll put mine down if you will too, so we can talk,” he offered.
“I just want you to leave. Stay back or I’ll have to shoot!” Jan ordered watching the man take another step toward her.
“No you wouldn’t shoot an unarmed man,” he stated putting his gun on the table nearby and taking another step closer.
Jan started pulling on the trigger trying to aim for his legs but the gun had a hard squeeze. She thought for a second it wasn’t going to fire until an explosion cracked through the air from the gun sending the missile into the man’s right leg and out again into the wall board. Before she had a chance to fire again the man decided to lunge at her. All of a sudden a large animal on jumped on his back, nipping at his neck and ears.©A.Nation2014
