TAP - TAP

TAP! TAP! by Rick Haynes The floorboards creaked as if someone was walking across the room. Ellie sat up in bed, her eyes as wide as saucers. Tap! Tap! She turned on the light and saw – nothing. Tap! Tap! She looked under the bed and in the wardrobe – nothing. Tap! Tap! Her eyes welled up. She tried to call mummy but only a strangled sob escaped from her lips.
