“Just inside the door, the dogs were barking. There were at least two of them. I went to the side of the house nearest the garage. The house was completely dark. There was a pair of windows above my shoulder. I used my hat for a glove and smashed the glass. Then I hoisted myself on to the ledge, and jumped off it, into the house of Henry Potter.” 0 likes
