A distant, persistent thudding echoed from somewhere and I finally realized it was the door.

He groaned, his arm tightening around me. “Five minutes.”
I snorted on a laugh. That was usually my line. “The door. Someone’s at the door.” It was then that I remembered we were at school. It was also then that I heard the distinct sound of a key sliding into place and unclicking the lock.
