Terrified... Horrified... traumatized.... scared... This are probably the best words that describes what I'm feeling now, I can't sleep and I can hear my heartbeat beating so loud. I am starting to be afraid of the dark.
Last night, I went to sleep around past 1:00am. Just like me and housemate do, we just leave our window wide open so that the cool breeze can enter our room and we're not thinking of anything might happen because we are living at the 3rd floor of an apartment building, inside a compound.
So, like what I said, I went to bed around 1:00am, switched off all the lights and left the window wide open. Then I fell deep asleep. Suddenly I heard my housemate, screaming! Somebody climbed at our window grill and tried to grab my housemate's handbag. Inside her bag is her 15 days salary, cellphone and all her important belongings. I was so shocked. I can't scream or say a single word and trembling... I was so afraid.
But thanks God we're not hurt, my housemate was alert and was able to shout for help. Early in the morning we reported the incident to the Police. Now, it's night again, I can't sleep, I can't switche off the lights, my heart is beating fast, and i can't close my eyes. I am praying to God for our safety. I prayed that my fear will just just pass away.
