Storyboard Text

  • One night I (Billy) went to the store to get groceries because my dad is on patrol at night as a policeman.
  • When I came out of the store, I was going to go down the ally way to make a short cut until I saw a man killing a woman. I couldn't tell who the man was because it was too dark to see him. But I knew that he had seen me because he turned his head towards me and I ran home.
  • I was in bed until I heard something move downstairs. So I get up and walk down the stairs to see if it was my dad coming home from work early. when I get down the stairs, I don't see anyone. but then I hear the creak of the wood floor in my living room so I go in there and see the shadow of a man who looks just like the guy who I saw murder the woman.
  • I went running up the stairs to go to my room, and when I tried to open the door it was locked. I heard him walking up the stairs with a slow creaking with every step. In my mind at the time I was panicking so I realized that I needed to be calm and think of somewhere to hide. I decided to go into my dads old office up stairs and hide in the closet. I went quietly into the room and into the closet. there was a moment of silence until I heard movement in the room. I tried to hold my breath and sit as still as I could. I heard him coming closer and I couldn't hold my breath much longer and then I started gasping for air. I wasn't quiet enough and the man started walking toward my direction.
  • He was getting closer and closer. Right when he was near the closet door I busted out of the door without him getting a hold of me, but he cut me with the knife that he was holding in his hand. The back of my arm was cut near the artery and I was bleeding a lot. I ran downstairs and ended up in the living room when I felt dizzy and tired. I fell to my knees then fell laying on the floor. The man was in front of me then and I didn't think of anything that I could do. He got even closer and then I saw who the man was. His name was James, I would of never guessed it. I don't even know what or why he would do this and what he did before.
  • I was laying down waiting for what he was going to do next when he started to walk toward. We both suddenly heard a person come into the house. The lights came on and my dad appeared in the room with us. He arrested James. He was on the floor in handcuffs while the EMS came to drive me to the hospital. Later, after my arm was stitched and bandaged I got to go home.
