I was finally able to begin reading your story. I must say, great beginning. For me, beginnings are always the most difficult.

Miss Midnight

Poor Grant, I know how he feels. When they trap you in their eyes and mimic your movements, creepy creepy little buggers!!! This is an excellent start to a chilling tale, lol. Love the descriptions and emotions. Everything is well paced and flows nicely together. Great now I will have to check my bed, closet, cupboards....OMGOSH, I'll just check everything! Spiders man, they be everywhere! Fantastic Chapter!
