Sample text:

At first I was sure it had to be my imagination running wild in the way that it so often did. Right then, as I stood frozen to my spot amidst the row of dense bush that separated Sam’s garden from mine, I could think of no other explanation. Convinced that the scene could not be real, I rubbed my eyes to clear the crazy image away. But still it remained and nothing would shake it from view. In fact, the more I blinked, the clearer it became. My fascination turned to awe as I stood transfixed and immobile, watching the scene take place in front of me. Sam’s bedroom window was open wide and the curtains were drawn, giving me an unobstructed view of the various objects zipping and zooming around the room. That in itself was strange enough. But the image of him standing calmly by while an odd assortment of items whipped past him, often narrowly missing him by mere inches, was the most bizarre thing I had ever witnessed. In real life anyway. I was so mesmerized by what was going on that at first I didn’t catch the sudden turn of his head. I had no idea what caused him to abruptly glance out the window in my direction. But when I thought about it later, I felt sure that somehow he was able to sense my presence. I also decided that perhaps he was psychic just like his mother. But at that moment, none of those thoughts were important. What mattered right then was the fact that I was not camouflaged by the surrounding trees as I’d previously thought. Instead, Sam was completely aware that I was standing there, wide-eyed and confused as I stared directly towards him. Being caught out, watching something I knew I was not meant to see, caused a sudden ball of fear to form in the pit of my stomach. And without another moment’s hesitation, I turned and raced back to the safety of my house.
