"Shhh" she whispered as we snuck through the silent house.  I tried not to giggle, I bit the inside of my mouth and a hint of iron tingled my tongue.  I knew better than to giggle.  I knew better than to wake them.  I kept her bent over back in sight...It was exhilirating and frightening all at once.  The chance of being caught, the flow of adrenline buzzed through our bodies, making them shake.

We stood there for an eternity.  Her hand begun to shake.  My legs began to shake.  Could we do this?  Doubt began to creep up my spine as we stood there, hesitating.  Then.....the door knob turned and we were greeted with the morning air and the early sunlight. 
Looking in to each other's eyes, we grasped hands tightly and took the first step....
