I opened the door and felt the cold brush against my skin. I walked over the door frame. I closed the door behind me and locked it. I started walking on the stone brick path leading away from the old brown house. The previous owners probably should have painted it years ago. I turned away from the house and took a deep breath. I felt a weird feeling growing as the wind touched my hair and lifted it so my ears were visible. I quickly turned around and started walking backwards so my ears wouldn't get cold. The wind left again and I turned around again. I should have dressed better. I just had a thin jacket, a pair of torn jeans and a couple of worn shoes. I was supposed to just take a little walk but I ended up taking a wrong turn and I got off path. I'd just moved in and I wasn't sure of where to go. I kept walking and soon found myself outside an old house. It looked just like mine, but something was different. I couldn't place my finger on it. I got irritated and turned away from the house. I couldn't get frustrated, not after what happened. I kept walking with my mind set on something else. But then my mind swept against it again, something I didn't want to think about. But I couldn't stop it. My eyes filled with tears as I opened them. When I closed them I could feel the pain in my throat. I started crying and felt all the feelings come rushing back. I turned around and ran. I ran and ran. I ran home and up the stairs. But I didn't go inside. I sat down with my back at the door. I just took the key out of my pocket and put it down on the ground beside me. I felt the feelings take over my actions. I felt it stronger than ever.
