The young girl hid in her bedroom closet on the second floor, shaking at the rising noises coming from outside her house. Her parents had gone out to dinner that night; they should’ve returned more than two hours ago. She heard her neighbors screaming as they were dragged from their home by the angry mob. The next thing she heard was an abrupt outburst of cheers, which were soon followed by the smell of burning wood. A window on the first shattered, and she could make out the terrifying cheers of many people entering her home.
