?????? The women slid into the luxurious crumpled white leather sofa and let the tide of cushions envelop her. Bathed in the subtle light she sat, gazing mindlessly into her TV. Inside the spacious living room, the large mirror hung majestically over the ornate stone fireplace and the traditional rug from South Africa was stretched out on the glossy, wooden floor; well positioned ornaments were placed around the room, giving it soul and life. And a soothing snug sound from the grandfather clock floated around the room. Warm-hearted pictures of friends, family and of her husband gave the room a familiar character.

She took a step forward, only to hear another pair of feet moving with her own. She carefully crept into the living room and crouched low behind the sofa. The luxury white leather sofa being but a barrier, to the sound of feet which were now making their way to the stairs. Her photos of family and friends of little use to her as the staircase squealed and creaked under the man's weight.
