    The clock struck midnight. I was on my laptop in my bedroom, browsing through YouTube videos. However, my browsing stopped when my phone vibrated. I saw that I received a text message from my friend, Ben.

    “Hey man I’m outside by the back door. Can you let me in?”.

    I knew he was lying. For the last few weekends, he had been messing with me. One weekend he told me he was parked in my cul-de-sac when in reality, he was in his bedroom. The following weekend, he told me he was coming over to hang out. When I came outside to greet him in his car, he floored it out of my neighborhood. I wasn’t going to let him get me this time. I sent a reply back.

    “I know you’re just messing with me again.”

    He immediately replied back.

    “No I’m being serious this time, I am by the back door.”.

    “Nice try, I know you’re not there.”

    I placed my phone down and continued my search. About a minute later, my phone vibrated again.

    “I’m downstairs.”

    “Ben, you can’t troll me three weekends in a row. However, I’ll give you an A for effort.”

    I placed my phone down again. I wasn’t going to play his little game. As I was about to continue my search, I started to hear something from the deafening silence of my dark house. I faced the doorway behind me and listened closely. It sounded like footsteps, silent footsteps walking around downstairs. It was nerve racking. I couldn’t believe it. Was my mind tricking with me or was Ben actually in my house? I grabbed my phone.

    “Are you joking with me man?.”

    I continued to listen as my phone vibrated again.

    “No, I told you I was downstairs, but you didn’t believe me.”

    I was quite relieved that it was him, but I was pissed off that he broke into my house. I could hear him walking around downstairs still as I waited for him to come into my bedroom. I grabbed my phone again.

    “Aren’t you going to come upstairs? I can hear you walking around downstairs. Just come up here already.”

    I sent the message and waited for him to respond. I was starting to get a little annoyed after a minute of waiting. I got up from my bed and went to the doorway. I proceeded to shout downstairs.

    “Get your ass upstairs already! Stop fucking around!”.

    I sat back on my bed as I began to hear him walk upstairs. Suddenly, my phone vibrated again. It was a text message from Ben.

    “You know I was fucking with you, right?”

    My heart dropped. I looked up at the doorway to see my killer smiling at me.
