You didn't think much of the balloons at first, assumed they were for someone's birthday party. But they were still there the next day, and the day after that, and by the fourth day you could swear that they were getting closer to your dorm room with every passing hour. A week in you asked your roommate about it- the balloons were near the hall doors now, impossible to ignore. Your roommate said they hadn't seen any balloons nearby for some time now. They're outside your door now. Waiting.
