Moments ago, I heard the ungodly shriek of a cat.
I bolted up in bed and launched myself at the window to figure out what horrible event was taking place just outside. With my eyes not adjusted to the darkness quite yet, I couldn't make out anything outside my window. I could feel eyes on me, though.. Slowly, I backed away, keeping my eyes on the unseen. Listening closely, I became aware of the distant car alarm. Eerie, the car alarm frequently faded out, only to return seconds later. Wait.. Something is shuffling through the grass outside.. Stay silent.. Don't blink..
Silence and anticipation..
Hold me. T.T
