What happens when you fear the people?


The last person on Ed Hassington's life was Sandford Mays. He glanced at the Grandfather clock; he was eating cherry pie.  The feelings of horror filled the darkness; the darkness came and went over time. He shook his head.

As he did so, the grimness of the situation irked him. 

Sandford died from liver cancer.

Ed was afraid. 

He focused on the sounds outside his apartment.

He saw a homeless man holding on a sign.



Ed slammed the front door shut.

He then waited.

As he did so, the horror was about to begin.


Ed smoked a cigarette.

He looked out of the window.

Two men were dead.

They were known to him. 


Fear of the People, he thought to himself.

And Ed shivered.
