Brenna quickly sat up and turned on the light hoping to see that the intruder was only a piece of clothing caught on a hook, but instead found something much worse. Her bedroom window was open. The curtains were parted as though someone had just pushed through them. The cool night air hit her in the face as the sounds of the night wafted in, so she knew she wasn’t imagining things.
Her heart jumped into her throat and she reached to grab the phone. Her shaking hands knocked over an empty glass that was in the way. Not wanting to waste any time by calling the police, she automatically dialed Eaton’s number. Eaton’s voice was groggy from sleep, but alert from seeing her number on the caller ID at three in the morning.
“Brenna, what’s wrong?” She could hear him sitting up in bed and turning on a light.
“Eaton, someone was just in my place. He was in my bedroom and went out the window.” Her words came out in one quick breath. She was pulled up against the headboard with her knees drawn up watching the window intently. Did the person really leave or was he still there? A part of her wanted to run out the door, but she was afraid he’d be waiting on her.
“Damn. Don’t move, stay where you are. I’ll be there in a minute, and I’ll call the sheriff.” As soon as Eaton hung up, she called Slaton. His voice was more alert when he answered.
“Brenna, are you okay?” She heard concern in his voice and imagined him sitting straight up, completely alert and ready to go.
“No. He was here. In my bedroom.” Each word was clipped as she continued staring at the phone.
“I’ll be there in a few minutes. Have you already called Eaton?” She could hear clothes rustling in the background.
“Yes, I called him first so the police could be here before he got too far away.”
“Good thinking. Hold on tight.” He hung up and quickly began dressing on his way to the car. His pants were the only thing he had on as he headed out his bedroom door. Jumping from one leg to the other to get his shoes on, he hobbled down the hall. His shirt was halfway on as he made his way into the living room. He didn’t have time to let his mom know what was going on, so it was a good thing she was standing in her bedroom door watching him as though she knew just what was going on.
Brenna took Eaton and Slaton’s advice and didn’t move until she heard a knock on her door. It seemed as though hours passed before either of them arrived, but just a few minutes had gone by. She practically fell on her face trying to get off the bed and to the door. Her imagination had this mysterious intruder grabbing her from every nook and corner. She found Eaton and the sheriff on the other side of the door, and led them straight to the bedroom. Who cared if she was only in her shorts and t-shirt? There was no time for greetings or modesty, she wanted this unwelcome visitor found.
