First draft – completely unedited
“Don’t shoot.” The young man was stuck, his jacket caught, and he was halfway out the window of my third-floor apartment, a gash on his forehead bleeding copiously, and his leg bent at an angle, trapped under the old radiator. The colder night air had filled the room from the open window. I had someone breaking into my home and he was terrified.
What the fuck?
I’d made it home without fighting my way through traffic, and that was a miracle, and by the time I stepped through my door, I’d realised just how much I need to be at home, as the tension of another long day slipped from my shoulders. I’d only made it a few feet inside when I heard the crash from my small home office, and me being me, I headed straight in there. Someone was in my apartment, and that wasn’t happening on my watch.
