Few hours had gone by, and the ominous noise that echoed all through the house had faded into oblivion. We were awoken by the startling alarm bell and realized we had fallen asleep where we were. It was 6 AM in the morning. Since it was daylight, we felt brave to go out and face the reality. We slowly opened the room door and came out. We searched every nook and corner and thankfully, we found nobody. We went to the main door and it was locked as I remembered. We opened the main door, looked around but found no one and then we stepped back inside. Just then, I heard the same sound again and I was terrified! I turned back to see the Oscar fish moving pebbles in the aquarium from one end to another, and the nightmarish noise that scared the living daylights out of us was actually a result of the pebble hitting the aquarium glass! The aquarium was placed right next to the front door. I felt my panic drift away.
If you didn’t already know, Oscar fish are known for their tendency to rearrange things in their tank. I did not know whether to laugh or cry when I realized all the panic was a result of misperception. Damn, I can’t believe I was terrified of an aquarium all this while? I am sure that I’m free from danger but my only concern remains unaddressed. HOW DO I GUESS IF SOMEONE IS ACTUALLY TRYING TO BREAK IN? Let me know in the comments down below.
