“Bang!” was the sound of the door swinging wide open as the three, drunk, teenagers walked into my house. It was around 2:00 o’clock in the morning, and I heard my dad run out into the kitchen and start yelling at the teenagers. I was frightened and nervous. Then I saw something go flying across the room. “Woosh”, was the sound it made!
Glass shattered all over the floor. It was a chandler , one of the teenagers threw a chair at my dad and it hit the chandler! Then my dad realized my brother was right in the direction where the chair was headed. So then my dad caught the chair before it hit my brother, then he threw it back.
My dad ended up chasing the teenagers out. And then he called the police and the officer wouldn't let my dad get off the phone until they arrived to my house. Meanwhile there's blood all over because my dad stepped in the glass from my chandelier that shattered when the guy threw the chair.
Shortly after the cops arrived. Then thats when we started calling our family. I called my best friend Carly, and told her what happened. She started crying and she came to my house and tried to comfort me.
My whole family is scared now and I still have trouble falling asleep at night. This is definitely something that I will always remember!
