Build the suspense, bring resolution, then end with the unanswered. Nice Writing!
Your details are very sharp in this piece. Nice suspenseful ending. :)

What a good story! An elderly woman living alone is the perfect target for a housebreaker. One little nit-pick, and that's all: "In less than 3 minutes" would usually be written "In less than three minutes". In typing class they said all the numbers up to 13 should be written out the long way instead of in numeral form. I'll be very interested to read more of your stories! Good writing!

P.S. I didn't mention before that your character development of Rosemarie (even within the word limit) was excellent.
