We all fear things, but can we say we have experienced true fear?
For example, you are downstairs, on your computer when the news comes on the TV, you sit and watch intently as the news caster tells you the scores of your favourite sporting events and the average cutesy story followed by news on how the politicians have messed up.
You are about to go to bed when the news comes back on, they're talking about riots, cause by a mass break out at the local prison, murderers, rapists and madmen are free and are roaming the town. You hear noise outside and duck down, you turn off the Tv and computer followed by all the lights (so not to attract the attention of the people outside).
you slowly make it up stairs, moving quickley past your glass front door, you see the outlines of people slowly walking up your drive, you hold your breath and sprint up the stairs, you run into your room and pull the curtains shut, you leap into bed and hide under the covers, you bury your head into the pillow and cry softly, you know it will be over soon, you reasure yourself over and over but there is still something nagging at you.
You suddenly sit, bolt upright as you hear something, then at that exact moment, it dawns on you, the most horrific realisation you could imagine, you finally understand, you finally experience true fear when you realise... You didn't lock the door.
