22. The wall of ice crept towards the house

The wall of ice crept towards the house.

Inside the Hunter family was celebrating around the giant Christmas tree, unaware of the silent but deadly killer lurking around the bend. Little Jimmy opened his present: a fire truck with a retractable ladder that could span the entire living room.

Thank you dad, thank you mom, he said teary-eyed, before hugging his parents. They were so wrapped up in the warm, cosy moment, they hardly noticed the ice shattering the central wooden beam on the living room ceiling.
