One stormy night I was asleep in bed when I heard a noise outside. It was a van that pulled up to the drive of my house. I looked out the window and saw men in black masks. I ran into his Mom's room but she was gone. I hid under my Mom's bed but then I saw the men's feet. Who were these people?, I thought. Then, they grabbed me from under the bed. As I was pulled into the van, I remembered it was my 12th birthday. I was growing more and more scared as I was dragged into a room. "Surprise!", everyone shouted. It was a surprise party for me. And what a surprise it was!
