“Don’t open that door or we are both dead.”

I blinked a couple of times. I was in the middle of getting up from my couch to get the door when I thought I heard a noise. Another knock at the door snapped me back to the situation.

I got up and took a step.

“Did you not hear me? You open the door, we both die.”
