A shiver ran down her spine. He could not believe what he had witnessed. Now that the silence had been found in the house, Natalia had let herself remain under the bed, waiting. They were all dead. Because? She did not know if her parents had enemies. And why kill her younger brothers? Was it meant for her? Natalia was in shock, she could not cry. The scene was too macabre. Almost the beheaded.

She felt anger to that house, too far from everything. It was the vacation home, where they went sometimes, in the weekends. Her refuge had become a place of death. She would have to walk miles to get help. That if she could escape. They paced, as if to check if the house was empty. One of them entered the room. He was going to check under the bed when he was called. Natalia was relieved to have escaped.

- What do you want? Do not you see that it's still early?

- Excuse me. Help me out. My family ... was murdered.

And she fainted. She had few strengths and she had not even have dinner. The man supported her fall and carried her inside, where he laid her on a sofa. When she woke up, she wanted to tell everything to run, but the man calmed her down. She then said it all from the beginning. When it came to an end, the man said that everything was going to be okay to call the police. It also gave the indication of where Natalia's holiday home was, as she had indicated.

The police went there and found the house clean and without trace of her family. When Natalia heard it, she complained that what she had said was true. The police, without believing her, ordered her to be admitted to a psychiatric institute, where she is still ...
