As she ran down her street, she was sure the three kids were far from her. Her breath steadied, and she relaxed. Her house was only a little ways from where she was currently. Soon she would see her parents and her sister, and she'll be able to forget the event that happened today. Just a few more steps... She thought to herself, arriving to her destination.

The house wasn't much, but it was home to the family of 4. It was a medium sized house, painted blue and white.
