In my neighborhood? REALLY?
I live pretty much out in the boonies. I wouldn't say out in the middle of no-where because I have a few neighboors and I am only about 15 miles out of city limits. But basicly there is not much that goes on around here. Just a quiet rural area. Well in the past two months or so there has been about 7 break in's around my area, pretty much with in a radius of five miles at most of where I live. I wasn't too concerned since my neighborhood is pretty secluded, and I live on just a little gravel road that really goes no where.
Well I was out in my neighboor's field playing with my dog, when I saw a car going down our road. It caught my attention because it's rare to see cars driving down it. When it got closer I noticed it was a cop car. Which is completely unheard of on our road.
Later that night my mom was online reading her emails and got one from one of our neighboors, let's call her J. She was warning us about another one of our neighbor's (let's call her P) house got broken into and had a bunch of personal items stolen and that we shoud warn our other neighbor, T. Well we called T to tell them that P's house got broken into and they told us they already heard about it.
Later we were talking to J and they mentioned how they seen some strange people walking up and down our road, and they looked quite out of place. Thinking back about three weeks ago, I recalled as I was going to town I remembered seeing a strange, gruff man walking by P's house.
So tonight I was a little late feeding the horses, and It was after dark when I finally walked up to the barn. I walked back to the house, and my dog was barking a bit, which she does a lot and I don't much of it. When I got to the house, I was changing my clothes and then walked to the front door and flicked the porch light on.
Our front door has a big window and you can see outside pretty well. We also have a big outside light that kinda lightens our front yard a bit, but our horse trailer blocks a lot of it and makes a big shadow in the yard. Anyways, as I flicked on the light, I saw a silloutte run across our yard into the shadow cast by our horse trailer. Scared the crap outta me. I'm pretty sure I wasn't imagining anything. Keeping everything locked and all the lights on for a while...
