I woke up Monday morning to the sound of tapping at the back door. I was home alone all weekend and my parents  weren't expected to be home until Tuesday. 
This noise had me interested so I slowly walked down the hallway to the back door there was a window I could look out. To my shock a group of people were outside my backyard. I wanted to get up the courage to go outside and see who they were but I stopped as I just saw that everybody's face was painted white. 
This must have been some sort of cult? I wasn't too sure but I was worried now as one of the members saw me and was pointing at the window. I ducked. I now heard more taping at my window. Then out of nowhere I hear a loud sound that made me want to jump out of my skin the window was shattered, glass everywhere. A note was attached to a rock "RUN" it said. I looked out the window again this time the people were gone. I felt like I was in danger if I run and they catch me what would happen? But what would happen if I didn't run? I did the one thing that made sence and I ran to the kitchen grabbed my phone and ran to my bedroom I locked the door and called the police.
 A few minutes later in complete silence I hear a sound that sounded like someone lock licking the door and the sound of the back door opening. I stayed silent and crawled under my bed. I could see a shadow And hear footsteps and they stopped at my door. A few seconds went bye I saw the door knob twist but it didn't open, I held my breath as I heard the door being lockpicked and then the door swung open. 
It was a police officer. I got out of the bed and told him what had happened. He told me he contacted my parents and they were coming home now and wanted to know if I wanted him to stay with me.
 I said no that I'd be fine. He said "ok" but did another quick search before leaving. As soon as he left. I took a deep breath and sighed relived. 
A few hours later I heard the garage door open. My parents are home I say to myself as I walk to the garage door. I hear talking following a knock on the door. "Hey how was your trip?" I say as I open the door. I felt paralyzed as it was not my parents at the door but it was the same group of people from outside they were now In my house. They stood at me and then one of the men said to me "I told you to run".
