I opened my eyes startled to hear the noise. My hand moved toward the bed lamp. I flicked the switch, but the lamp was still off.
Ah, just my luck. No power and whatever had been purring was now staring right at me.
It blinked & I stepped out of my bed. But its eyes started to follow me. I ran down the hallway and hid in one of the guest rooms.
I placed my hand on my chest. My heart was beating quite fast. After I thought all was clear, I heard a knock at the door. I gulped.
Oh no. Uh, I forgot to lock it. Whoever it was opened the door and left it ajar.
I crawled under the bed and waited silently. All was suspiciously too quiet.
I jumped when I saw a pair of eyes staring at me. The same ones that had been in my room.
The eyes were fixed on me and seemed to peer into my soul. I couldn’t look away.
The thing took all my memories. My mind was (now) a vacuum.
My heart ached at the loss of something that was stolen, a vital part of me. I couldn’t recall what was taken, I just laid on the floor feeling lost & afraid.
