This story takes place in a small apartment complex that has four small apartments in the building. There are two apartments upstairs and two apartments downstairs. Our story begins in one of the downstairs apartments, in the middle of Chicago. Eric and Melody are just getting home from a dinner date that they go on every Saturday night. Eric and Melody have been friends for years. Eric lives in Milwaukee and drives down to Chicago every Saturday to see Melody so they can go on their date. He has to go home on Sunday because he has to work Monday morning.
They took up hiding behind the couch because they heard a sound that could've been someone trying to get in. They both have heard their share of stories of people breaking into houses in the middle of Chicago. Melody is frightened and Eric is scared but not trying to show it. A scratching sound was coming from outside the front door so they popped their heads up from behind the sofa. Eric asked Melody if her cat could've gotten outside, and Melody asked if he would go check the hallway to see if Midnite had got out her door and was now stuck in the hallway scratching to get in. Eric then got up, went to the front door, and found Midnite sitting at the door waiting to come in. Eric quickly picked Midnite up and took him to Melody. Melody got up from the floor, behind the couch, and was so relieved and happy to see her cat.
Melody took Midnite in her arms, her and Eric sat on the couch and laughed at thinking Midnite was a burglar. After that Melody made the couch for Eric to sleep on, the she picked Midnite up and they all went to sleep.
