when the man speaks Julia can almost hear the fright in his voice. She can hear the dog’s nails on the ceramic tile upstairs. She figures that this guy doesn’t want to hurt her and that he is just a thief.
about 10 minutes later she see’s cop lights in the window. She can hear the man panic and run upstairs. she hears running above her and a door knocked down (probably police). She sits as silent as a mouse.
Since So much time has passed Julia has not a clue of what time it is when she hears footsteps coming downstairs. A cop slowly peeks his head so that Julia can just barely see past his eyes, he tells her that she is safe and her parents are waiting outside for her.
The officer informs Julia that her parents are outside waiting and very worried. Julia is surprised, she thinks they would still be out with friends. She runs outside not caring about all the neighbor's on the street, she runs to her parents and hugs them tightly.
