Lightning Flashes

The night was so dark.  She couldn't remember a time when she ever felt like this... it was almost like floating.  There were no senses, no emotions, and her sense of reality was distorted by the fact that she couldn't figure out where she was, or who she was for that matter.  The little she remembered was coming back slowly.  She saw herself walking up the stairs and felt the cool doorknob against her hand... and then she remembered dropping the flashlight, and hearing the creak in the floor behind her.  But she couldn't imagine who had been there behind her.  And it seemed that she wouldn't get the chance to find out anytime soon. 
Everything around her was so silent...  The only thing she noticed were these flashes of light, and she could feel a low rumble.  "It must be storming" she thought to herself.
