Chapter 3

A/N: Sorry for the long wait. Here's the next chapter. I hope you enjoy it.

After Sherriff Coffee left the house, we talked for a few minutes and then I finally decided that it was time for me to go to bed.

When I got up to my room and got into my bed, I heard a gunshot from outside my window. I looked out and saw a man running towards the barn. After the shot I heard feet running up the stairs.

The door opened and my dad rushed in the room with his gun out and when he saw that there was nothing in my room except for me, he put it back in his holster. "Are you ok?"

I looked at him and said. "The gunshot I heard came from underneath my window. I saw the shooter running towards the barn. I don't know if he's still there or not though. That was just the direction that I saw him go."

Dad ran out of my room and outside the house with the rest of the family and went to the barn and checked to see if the person who shot the gun was in there.

As soon as they got back inside, Dad came into my room and made sure that I was alright. "Everything is fine. You go back to sleep and I'll see you in the morning."

"Ok." I said as I closed my eyes and listened as my father went downstairs with the rest of my family.
