When Jack finally got to his room he was sidetracked and began reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire right where he left off the day before.

He threw his stick back into the corner and turned the frozen door knob, locked. He went out of the garage and opened his main door, did not budge. Perplexed and terrified as he vividly remembered he had left both the locks open, he sprinted to his neighbor's house, old Mrs. Newlan.
