13 days passed since Jim saw another human being,he saw
something but it definitely wasn't human.
What was that....the image of it made him sweat
at the very thought.
3 nights ago he had been on his usual lookout point
on the roof of his three story house in which he lived alone
"such a shame" he remembered what his neighbour had said
"a house that big and he still lives alone"
he was looking at the remains in her backyard right now.
Not a pretty sight,he thought to himself.
It was very cold three nights ago,unusually cold for a september
night,but hey,the weather always sucks.
He didn't care,he was well dressed and waiting,hoping to
see someone is still alive,the white puffs of air from his
breathing formed miniature clouds in front of his face.
Thats when he heard mrs.James scream,her loud and chilling
scream made his blood curdle and he stopped breathing the same
time the screams stopped,then he saw it,a black shadow
dragging mrs. James outside,the creature had piercing red
eyes,they resembled two lit cigarettes,he knew he needed
to do something and he tried to yell out,to scream "stop!!"
but his voice escaped him,locked away,terrified in
the back of his throat.
Jim was now staring at the horrible sight,he felt himself
sweat under his pricey jacket,felt the sweat drops trickling
down his ribs under his shirt.
The sound of the Thing feeding on his neighbour still rung
in his ears,three days later,but that night the sound was even
more disturbing,even more loud and almost deafening
as he saw mrs.James being eaten and he did nothing.
He never even liked her that much but still he blamed himself a little.
It felt like an eternity before the thing stopped eating,Jim was now
more interested in what the hell that thing was then for the well-
being of mrs.James,she was dead a long time now.
The sound of crunching cartilage awoke him from his daze,the ground or
better the roof escaping under his left foot,he didn't fall
but the black shadowy creature froze and looked up,it seemed impossible
but it's eyes actually changed color from blood red to emerald green
as it was focusing on the sound it heard.
The thing stood there there motionless for a few seconds,the eyes turned
red again and it looked down at his meal or mrs.James,how it was known
before,but the ripped out muscles and bones in a bloody pile didn't
look anything like mrs,James anymore.
The thing's white teeth looked like they were at least three inches long
and it seemed to Jim like there were hundreds of them,all of a sudden the
thing made a noise,almost a squeal,but it was high pitched,its head lifted,
mouth gaped open and it let out a screaming howl,Jim was frozen cold
or at least thats how his blood felt,his voice was back now,"oh God,not now"
he thought but it was too late,he felt the yelp leave his throat,and thats all
the thing needed...
Its head turned toward Jim and it just lept,it lept three stories
straight at him,the white teeth almost looked beautiful as they were
closing in on him,Jim fell back,slipping,he felt himself fall,
he was airborne,falling for what it seemed an hour and still not
hitting the ground,he opened his eyes and the white teeth were
still closing in,he wanted to fall hard,he wanted to die like
that,"better than being eaten alive" he thought,but still no
thud,no crunch,nothing....deafening silence...and then he heard it,
a voice calling his name,it was loud,very loud,"what the..?!"
"Wake up honey....you'll be late for work"
His wife was standing above him,her red lips,and beautiful
brown hair brought him back from the dream,he was slowly
"what the f...?"
It was just a dream.
