Now I got the claustrophobia

It was 1am and I'm home alone; chatting and watching TV with Goppy's companion. I heard the thunderstorm coming and the wind is getting so strong, thus I went into my laundry room to close the window.. who knows the wind were so strong that it bang the door of my laundry room and eventually I WAS BEING LOCKED IN THERE!!!!!!!! Gosh...

That laundry room is sort of a small balcony facing the corridor with lift but with 1 or 2 feet gap in between. There is no way I can get out from there unless I climb out of the window into the corridor, but I'm not a spiderman, definitely I won't risk my life for that. I was hoping for someone to pass by so that I can ask him/her to call Danny home, but heck, it was 1am++!! apparently it was a slim chance...

God know how long I stood there waiting for passerby, at the mean time I can hear Goppy was crying inside the house and stare at me behind the window which is next to the damn door who locked me outside. Goppy were trying to jump up the window too, although I don't know why he wanna do that, but he gave up after few failed attempts and he just sleep in front of the door.. Aww, I felt warm with his companion, at least it makes me feel less lonely.

It was cold and dark, and the strong wind was making the spooky sound; I felt nervous perhaps due to a little bit of claustrophobia? I don't know, but I used to scared of taking a lift alone when I was a kid, and I was scared of being alone in a room with the door closed; I felt really uneasy being locked in such a small space, it's suffocated. I tried to bang the door to make my alarm sound, but sooner I realize the alarm is not activated; and the last thing I will do is break the window next to the door, coz I will end up injure my hand and leave a hole in my wallet. Nah. Well, I opted for waiting Danny home. Thank god I'm not staying alone.

However I really find it hard to keep myself calm in such situation, I know I gotta get something to do to kill my time and distract myself; so I tidy up the room and used the water dispense from the washing machine to wash my face and wipe my body; at least I get rid of the stickiness which due to the sweat, and I felt more comfortable.. Luckily I still left my washed clothes hanging there, so I put the towel on the floor and turn my clothes into pillow, then I lie down and force myself to sleep. Suprisingly I am able dozed off and finally woke up by the sound when Danny came home. I saw Danny with the halo when he open the door for me.. It was 4am.
