A thunderstorm night
I crouched in the corner of my comfy sofa, tightly wrapping a thick blanket around me. My parents were stuck at work, unable to return home, as a thunderstorm was ravaging outside and the roads were flooded. I was alone. I decided it was a perfect night for a horror movie marathon.
