A Doomed Split

Alex Rajotte

It had to be around two in the morning when the sound of the slamming of your old, creaky front door was loud enough to wake up you and your younger brother, Andy. This wasn't the first time you heard a noise come from down stairs at this hour of the night, but it was the first time it was loud enough to break your ten year old brother's slumber. It was bound to happen sooner or later, not everything can be prevented. Andy's young and curious mind was enough to get him to investigate.
He turns on the light and looks at you from his bed across the room. "Psst! Did you hear that?" He whispered quietly. "Hey, Are you awake?"
Ignore him and try to go to back to sleep
"Yeah, how am I supposed to sleep through a sound like that?"
