The newsagency was always open on time, especially on Saturdays, the busiest morning on the shopping strip. People were standing out the front of the newsagency, staring at a huge pile of papers still bundled on the footpath, and when they tried the door, it was locked.
Immediately fearing something was wrong, Kathy and Robert went straight over to Min and Lily’s house to find out why they hadn’t opened their newsagency. They assumed they were either sick or maybe one of the boys had hurt themselves.
When they arrived, they found the front door unlocked.
Robert and Kathy entered the house and called out, but no one responded.
They slowly made their way upstairs.
Kathy opened her brother and sister-in-law’s bedroom door. Robert was following close behind.
What did they see?
