And by outsiders I mean those of you fortunate enough to be outside Smith House at this point. The situation has become increasingly desperate as the invaders below assail the very structure of our house.
At first they were merely an inconvenience, creating a lot of dust and noise. Then the main hallway on the first floor became impassable, but we were able to use the fire escapes to get in and out of the house and dining room/kitchen. It definitely has taken on a post-apocolyptic feel.
Then the house began shaking with each blow, and I wondered if the house was going to fall down. They cut our power. We are worried that soon the oxygen will get stale and the atmosphere poisonous.
They have begun to assail the stairs after having devoured the walls on the first floor. We don't know how much longer the assault will last, we don't know how much longer we can last.
Sill, the house should look nice when it's all over.
Because I have to...
