Lucy walked slowly from her bed to open the window and was about to go back to sleep when all of a sudden she heard.
Rustle, Rustle, rustle, Crash.
She tried to run to her window but her legs were like glued matchsticks.
Lucy could see nothing outside.
Her eyes were still hypnotized though, to that single spot- transfixed – on the garden and the
sky smeared with grey ink.
She didn’t notice the tiny footsteps moving closer. They were fast and quiet until they reached the last step.
They were now clonking closer and heavier than before
and then they stopped.
Something made Lucy shiver- a breath of ice at her neck. The light slowly, flickered to reveal a pair of dark eyes and blood red lips. Lucy screamed but it was too late and her scream was no more than a muffled echo in her hollow room.
