NaNoWriMo (Day 5 of 30) "Strangers in the Dark" (48,842 words left)

I'm going to post this now, just in case I don't get the chance to do it later. Today is my friend Sarah's birthday and my friend Morgan is having her first bridal fitting and I am her Maid of Honor so it is going to be another busy day. Honestly, I am getting tired of using the word "busy!" There has got to be another one I can use. Any ideas? Nevertheless, NaNoWriMo continues...

Strangers in the Dark (Continued)

Tomorrow came soon enough and we were almost packed. Everything was waiting by the door as we tried to get one more full night’s sleep before walking away from everything, this city, neighborhood, the only home I have ever known. It was hard choosing what to bring, and fitting our entire house into one SUV was out of the question as Dad so blatantly pointed out to Jensen. Even though he was nearly a teenager, he still came up with some pretty childish notions. Then again, he might have just been trying to be funny for the rest of our sakes.
That night, we all slept in the basement just to get away from the noises of the barricades outside so that we could all try and get one more night of decent rest. Not that we all weren’t on edge for the entire night. We were all prepared to leave at first light, but none of us were prepared for the shattering crash that echoed through our house in the dim.
I jolted up from a fuzzy sleep, my heart threatening to break out from my chest.
“What was that?” Jensen asked before he was nearly strangled by our dad’s hand covering his mouth. His other hand rose to his lips, silently telling us all to be quiet as footsteps rang throughout the length of our house.
