Peering desperately with shampoo in her eyes she barely could see that the bathroom door which was locked. All of a suddenly she felt a hand briefly on a top portion of her naked shoulder. Shock she quickly squatted down trying to grab her towel while yelling, “Who is that?” However she did see anyone as she hurriedly dressed and rushed to her parents’ room.

They were uttered surprised when heard the sound of someone trying to open doorknob…. their doorknob!
