Se-young didn’t even move, as if her body was paralyzed, even killing her breathing.
The stillness of the night, which gave me a sense of calm after getting used to it, was dyed with suffocating tension.
‘Not the people downstairs.’
I can’t hear the sound of something heavy hitting the floor when I’m coming up from the bottom.
At least, it’s a sound that can only come out when it’s dropped from the top down.
Either he climbed up the outer wall of the building and jumped off the roof railing, or jumped this way from an adjacent building and jumped off.
Tension spread from Se-young’s rigid body.
‘theif? if not… ‘
The force in his clenched fist was so strong that blood began to form.
Se-young herself couldn’t figure out what she was hoping for.
The intersection of ‘fear’, which shakes hands and feet, and ‘Yes, I’ve waited for this moment for a long time’, which rises from the opposite side as if defiantly.
how much time has passed
At least ten or twenty minutes seemed to have passed.
It can only be seen that there has been no reaction since the first landmark.
Se-young, who had only been staring at the darkened door until then, clenched her teeth and finally got up from the bed.
bang bang. bang bang. bang bang. bang bang.
The sound of my heart pounding like crazy, like it was going to pierce my chest, echoed in my head louder than the sound of a hammer hitting a rock.
The regret that I should have installed a CCTV, which had been throwing troubles in the corner of my mind all the time, lifted my head again, leisurely.
The reason I didn’t install it was simple.
Realistically, it won’t help.
vigilance against threats, and coping with fears.
Because the identity of that threat and fear cannot be protected by CCTV.
If we want to, we will remove such things in advance, and even if there are witnesses, not videos, there is nothing we can do about them.
At least in this country.
CCTV was not installed as a very realistic and cynical judgment.
Se-young defined her situation and her eyes on the world at the age of 15.
Mere regrets and thoughts aroused a rather cynical and realistic awareness, ironically dispelling the fear of the intruder at night.
shudder. shudder. shudder.
The door locks were unlocked one by one.
Se-young, startled by the sound of the door opening, reflexively pressed the light switch.
A sudden bright light shot his eyes, but Se-young opened her eyes and stared at the door.
There was still no sound from outside after the first sound.
Se-young, who had been staring at the front door leading to the outside for a moment, took one step at a time and stood in front of the door.
The hands of the three young men who unlocked the topmost lock trembled.
The faces of the dead father and mother overlapped with trembling hands.
In an instant, Se-young released the rest of the locks at once like a seizure.
And he slammed the door with his feet.
Se-young, who was about to swing her fist when she saw anything in front of her, as soon as the door flew open, her gaze immediately looked straight ahead and then quickly scanned the roof from left to right and then from right to left.
I clenched my teeth and strained my eyes enough to make my eyes bleed three or four times on the street.
However, contrary to expectations, there was no one on the roof.
Even that common stray cat.
Only the eerie silence of the deep night and the bright moonlight illuminate the rooftop.
Se-young, who had lost her pulse, swallowed a sigh.
It was an instant that the feeling that was close to that certainty and the conclusion that his rational, sober judgment was all an illusion.
Se-young, who was about to turn and enter the house, stopped.
The visual scene that I saw a few minutes ago floated up in my head as if it had been buffered, and my body reacted.
Se-young turned around.
His gaze flew away as if stuck in the center of the roof.
He was so absurd and absurd that he was startled by the words that came out without knowing it and shut his mouth again.
How else would you judge?
A cold color reflected in the moonlight.
Thick and elongated blade.
With the handle facing the sky, about half of the knife pierced the roof floor and was stuck upside down.
‘Where is this… ‘
No, who should I say?
Suddenly, my mind went blank and I couldn’t organize it.
Se-young looked around the roof of the adjacent building.
Is this the Shih Tzu that is being explained now?
Suddenly, suspicious eyes turned to the sky.
A bright full moon and a cluster of stars embroidered the black sky.
The eyebrows are centered, the eyes are colored with wonder, and the mouth that is open can’t close, and they merge into one, and Se-young’s face, which looks around the sky, has created the most colorful and dazzling expression in the last two years.
