He heard a door open in one of the nearby houses and watched as someone pulled down a ladder, which was above the door, and climbed down it. Other houses had slides from the door to the ground and he wondered how they got back up. Maybe they climbed through the windows on the ground floor, he thought.
Just as he was about to walk on, all the houses, which had been facing in one direction, unexpectedly rotated a few degrees to the left. James was so shocked, he let go of his bicycle and jumped backwards, screaming.
