It first comes slowly in the dead of night. Walking on silent feet, it draws near. You run faster, but it speeds up. You dash into a building, an empty school. It soon follows, bringing with it a silence. You can feel its presence as it moves closer. It follows you down the deserted hallway. You check the doors. You jiggle the knobs. They’re all locked. You turn around and stand strong. Darkness falls to encompass all.
