|Subject: Disturbed Night (Bel)|
Posted Mar 27, 2012 by aka Bel
|At about 2.30am (I'd just come back from the loo and was going back to sleep) I suddenly heard somebody yell for help - at least four times, and very loud. I couldn't locate it, but it seems to come from within the house. I got up an dialled 110, then answered lots of questions to the police officer. This woke my husband who asked what was going on. |
He went to look out the window and told me that our neighbour from downstairs was pacing up and down in front of the house. She had heard it, too (but not called the police). Her neighbour to the left was looking out of the window, too. None of us could tell where exactly it had come from. All of us thought it had been from within the house, but all was silent in there - except for us. The police came about ten minutes later and asked all their questions again. There wasn't anything new we could tell them, however, so they were just about to go and look round the neighbourhood when the front door opened and A came in . He's the youngest son of my neighbours to the right and lives in a village not too far away. He must have been quite disturbed to find a committee consisting of three neighbours and two policemen. I asked him what happened, and he said his papa had called him. His mum had had an operation and something happened. He vanished quickly upstairs. The police followed, rang the doorbell and asked if everything was OK. They said yes, but didn't explain what it was all about - the mystery is unsolved. Anyway, we could all return to our respective beds - but I couldn't get back to sleep for ages.
I'm very tired now. I'm not quite sure why our neighbour didn't just open his door and tell us that everything was OK. he must have heard the commotion in the staircase. Then again, maybe he was too disturbed to think clearly.
