I see him through the glass. In the dark he wears a mask. As though he has a task. He walks and walks. And then returns. To stare at me through the glass. He sees me watching and then he smiles. He puts a finger to his lips. Then shines his teeth. I see how long and sharp it is. He stares with eyes as red as ruby. I jump and ran up to my mum. I dashed up into her room. I tell her my plight , but she made me feel dumb. It was a nightmare hun, come sleep with mum. But I'm know he's real, he told me he will ReTurN. My name is maddy. And I used to be happy. Until he took me. Late, one dark stormy evening. I heard my mum screaming. She must have discovered I wasn't on my bed sleeping. Deep in dark forest with no mummy. I started crying. He looked at me with eyes as red as ruby. And smiled with teeth so sharp, long and shiny. Call me DaDdY. He told me.
