I could taste the fear in my mouth. My eyelids stung and my jaws were clenched tight. My fists squeezed tight and sweat was beading up all over me. I had to take a breath. I could hear her moving further away. Her footfalls fainter than before. Suddenly my nostrils stung. I felt a sort of swelling in my throat. “a-choo” I tried to stifle it. I tried to not do it. My body was stiff as a board as she opened my door.
