“The Shadow in the Darkness”
Even in the darkness, Jason Drummond can see it breathing.
Somehow darker than even the inky blackness of his bedroom, the shadow’s slight movements as its torso menacingly breathes in and out betray its stillness.
Night after night, the shadow stands there… just watching. And each night, Jason stares back, the tiny hairs on his neck tingling, as he tries to convince himself it’s just a trick of the light.
While it has no eyes, Jason feels like the shadow is staring straight into his soul.
Trapped in its gaze, unable to look away, his head grows increasingly lightheaded and blurry as he feels the shadow inside his own mind, its presence expanding through Jason’s consciousness…
The dead silence is broken as a car drives down the quiet suburban street, its headlights shining through the window.
After the car passes, Jason’s eyes adjust to the dark again… but the shadow is gone.
