I wished it was me…

‘It wasn’t me.”

“Then who was it, Bill?”

“I don’t know.”  I sighed.

I had just walked in to find our open-plan home in chaos.  Things, our things, were everywhere, strewn across every surface.  Then Mandy had come down the stairs, yelling, blaming me for it.

“It wasn’t like this when I went up the stairs.”

That could only mean one thing: intruder. Burglar, wild animal or poltergeist…and I didn’t like any of those options.
