As I tiptoed softly up the stairs I tripped on the 5th step. Paused, thinking someone had heard me. It is so gentle I could hear my own heart- beat. Today at this time of day, it is so cold; maybe I should have listened to my mum and brought my gloves. Luckily I had lots of layers on. So I got up and as I did, I saw a crack in the next step, so I stepped on it lightly to see what would happen and suddenly it made a hole and I nearly fell through.
