And now…Distracted, a novella

Chapter One

Jake entered the Turner house with precaution. The 911 call was from a hysterical woman. However, there wasn't a sound in the old two-story house now. The door creaked as he closed it, and pulled his gun. Something had been amiss surely or the woman wouldn't have sounded so desperate. Nevertheless, where was she?

He cocked the gun and waited. Nothing.

"Hello…anyone home?" He called, not knowing who else might be there.

"I'm up here, please…come quickly…," she gasped loudly.

Jake ran quickly up the stairs, but he couldn't tell where the voice had come from.

"Ma'am? Where are you?" Jake called.
