The Climber

Sunday, the 24th of January 2021

My family home was in a large apartment complex owned by PayPal. I looked out my window into our garden, which was amongst many other gardens, and saw a 'climber' coming towards me. Climbers were a well-known danger; just people climbing all over the place at lightning speed. He climbed over our roof and then into my room, across and back out the window like a big insect, and he seemed to enjoy it.

I was lying on my bed, impressed, when he climbed back in, got into my laundry basket and stomped around in it so that the dirt from his shoes soiled the laundry. I angrily pushed him out of the room, I was extra rough with him and my mum was now there too. The climber then wanted to pee in our garden, but then decided to throw up in the garden instead. I wanted to shout: "You're an animal anyway", but I stopped just before the last word because I thought it wouldn't do any good anyway. Instead, I said: "I wish you all the best." Then he disappeared.
