After school Lock quickly dash straight home. He just recieved his report card and couldn't wait to tell his mom the good news.
"All A's! I got all A's! For once I actually got good grades! Mom will be so proud when she sees this!"
Just up ahead was his street. As he turns the corner he notices that an unfamilar car was parked on the driveway of his home. Not only that, but the front door was wide open too.
"That's strange. We never had vistors before. Come think of it...I don't think anyone knows where I live in the first place."
He slowly walks up on the porch poking his head inside looking around.
No answer. It was dead silent. Not even the sound of his own breath could heard. He walks in a bit more, looking around the area.
"Mom, I'm home...I got my report card today."
Still no answer. Not a single word. Nothing. Lock's heart started to drop. Then speeds back up like a rocket. His whole body began to stiffen as he takes small deep breaths.
O-ok Lock. Just take it easy. Maybe mom is just...just went out. Yeah, and forgot to shut the door behind her.
Just then, a door opening and closing could be heard not too far away. Lock glances up sees it's coming from his mom's room. Cautiously he walks towards the half open door. After each step he takes, his heart pounds faster and faster.
As he pushes the door all the way open he couldn't believe what he saw. There on the bed, layed his mom. Drentched in blood...she was dead.
His eyes widen in fear and horror. Just to see her lifeless was too much for him. As his heart ache and feet quiver, the door slams shut behind him. Causing him to jump out of his skin.
"Well, if it isn't my dear old son Lock. How you've been? My how much you grew."
Lock quickly turns to face the person. To his surprise, it was his father. He stared at him with blood shot eyes.
"You...how could you?!"
His father laugh as he pulls out a gun from his pocket.
"It was simple really. When you know the right people."
He loaded it up then aims right Lock's chest. Lock backs away knowing what's going to happen next.
"Tell me son. Did you really think the two of you could really escape from me that easily?"
With those last words he pulls the trigger as everything goes totally black.
