Late one evening during my summer vacation, while I was reading, the fuse blew.
I was alone and in order to get some fresh air, I opened the main door of my house. To my horror I saw the silhouette of a man approaching me with a knife.
Instantly, I realized that he was an intruder, but I was too terrified to scream for help. Before I knew it, I reached for the flower-pot and hurled it at the intruder, and screamed for help.
My neighbors came rushing to my rescue and the intruder was taken to the police station. I received a lot of appreciation from my parents and neighbors for having shown timely courage.
