A girl lives a nightmare the day before Christmas. What will happen?

It was Christmas Eve and I was sitting with with my family in front of our huge, cozy fireplace in our mansion.The fire was sending a soft light on our tree, which was decorated red ornaments and silver tinsel.

We basked in the fresh scent of and mint while we drank our hot chocolate with candy cane straws. We also talked about the things we might get for Christmas.

Suddenly, there were flashing red and blue lights shining through or windows and we heard a car for slam.

"Come out with your hands behind your head now," a voice shouted.

We looked at one another, each saying that they haven't done anything illegal. We all were confused. Why would they come here like this if nobody did anything? Did they get the wrong address?

My dad decided to check it out and said, before closing the door, " I'm gonna try to figure this out and smooth things over. I'll be back soon." He closed the door and we heard his footsteps crunch in the snow.

He stopped, and, for a few moments, nothing happened. Suddenly we heard a gunshot and something fell.

My mom screamed and ran out the door. My sister and I heard my mom crying as she searched for dad.

We heard a second gunshot and my sister ran outside. I tried holding her back so that nobody else could get hurt, but I didn't grab her fast enough.

I heard the third shot that night and started crying. How will I ever live without them.

I walked outside and saw the most gruesome sight. My family's bodies were lying on the ground on top of each other and there was a lot of blood. I wasn't expecting to see so much blood. There was blood on the pine trees, the snow covered ground, the cars, and on the side of the house.

I was standing there shocked when I heard the last and final shot. I turned around and the last thing I saw was the bullet coming towards my face. After that, I knew no more.
