I had the strangest thing happen today. Let me start by explaining how my house is set up. Behind my house, there is an alley. There is grass that most of the people don’t mow, and it’s more of an easement for the utilities than anything. I also have an alley on the side of my home too. That alley has gravel on it. My garage faces this alley (no I don’t have a driveway) and so does the neighbor behind us.
So Will and I get home from school today, and we were in the backyard admiring my handwork of putting up an American flag (by myself). Then I hear “click, click, click”. I turn around and there is a guy in the back alley holding a gun (a gun that looks like a riffle). I’m like okay Will let’s get in the house. The guy never said anything to me nor did he even look at me. So I called Bill. My first thought was to call the police, but Bill figured if he was up to no good that he wouldn’t be so open in the alley back there. So his vote was to do nothing and if I felt nervous to look the door. So I called my mom. She’s like hang up with me and call the police! I was about to do that and looked out the window again. Guess what I saw.
Now, I still see the guy with the gun. But now I notice that there is guy standing on the garage that is not directly behind me, but the next one over. The guy on the roof has a pitchfork looking rake and is hitting the roof of the garage with it. At that point, I figured I was safe. I thought it was strange but still not sure what the heck was going on.
So when I took Will to the doctor today, I back out of my garage and go past the alley. Then I realized what they were doing. There was a hole in the fascia (which is just below the roof). It was about 6 inches longs and 3 inches wide. I’m guessing some animal got in there. The guy on the roof was pounding trying to get whatever creature in there out. The guy with the gun was going to shoot said animal? That’s my best guess. I’m still not sure if it was a real gun, a dart gun, or just a BB Gun.
So if you saw a guy in the alley with a gun, what would you do?
