Suffer Little Children

Silence. Silence is what greets Matt as he faces his doorstep. He's scared, so scared, his hands are shaking as he opens the door. He's not used to such a silence. He can hear his uneven breathing and the dull thud he makes as he walks through his front door.

The door is unlocked, and he is slightly worried. The apartment is dark, cool, and quiet. He is almost certain that he can hear the foundation settle, even though he lived on the fifth floor. He clears his throat, wincing at how loud it sounded to a dead room. "Hello?" he calls out, still standing in the same spot, arms reaching out blindly. "Anyone home?" He already knew the answer, but need some comfort.

Matt flips the light on. It is bright and hurts his eyes, but he keeps them wide open, taking in his surrounding. He is half expecting someone to pop out. He frowns and turns on the television for the sound. He can't remember if he left it on before he went out. Maybe it was better if he doesn't think of someone breaking in. That's what his mind instantly turns to.

Suddenly, Matt's eye catches something unfamiliar. A coat, resting on the arm of his sofa. His hands are shaking again, and he grabs an umbrella quickly. "Hey! If anyone is in here, come out now!" He tried to sound tough, but knew his scared trembling voice broke through.

He checks each and every room in his house for intruders. He only finds dust bunnies and silence. His bedroom is last and Matt is apprehensive. He pads softly towards his bedroom. The door is latched shut. He slowly reaches out and turns the knob, opening the door quickly. He turns on the light and lets out a gasp. There is someone underneath his covers and Matt does not know who it is. He raises the umbrella and lowers it to the strange lump in his bed.

The figure jumps up and screeches. "Holy Hell, Matt! What was that for?"

Matt's eyes widen as he sees who was in his bed. Adam. "I, uh, I thought someone broke in my house."

Adam sits up and rubs his head. "So you go around, brandishing an umbrella?"

Matt looks away guiltily. "I was scared..."

"I'm sorry. You weren't home and I thought you wouldn't mind me over. I was tired so I went to take a nap before you came back," Adam informs him, standing up. He walked over to the shorter man and pulled him into a hug. "I didn't mean to scare you."

Matt relaxes. "It's okay. I was overreacting." He titled his head up to look into Adam's eyes. "But next time you need to leave a note or something. And I promise I'll keep the umbrellas in the closet."
