That noise…what’s that noise? It was the hollow bellow of silence–deafening in its quake.

She struggled to regain consciousness. Oh my God, wake up. It’s so cold. Around her, she sensed something soft and silky, cool and damp.

Eyes flickering open.

I can’t see. I can’t see! Panic set in and her hand searched hungrily around. Where am I? She was confined and unable to move, save for the movements of her right hand. Was she moving?

Her heart throbbed.


And as her hand scratched one last time at the silkiness beneath her…she disappeared back into darkness.

    Kiki. Terrific and terror-ific! I read it and felt the dread. Nice work.
