The forest was dark and eerie as Imari walked through it. Wishing she had caught the bus, she tromped through the ankle deep snow knowing that she wasn’t too far from her house and she would soon be warm. 
As she came up on the small stone cottage that she knew to be hers, she shook out her curly hair that cascaded around her chocolate slim face that had large caramel colored eyes, an exquisite nose, and a mouth with soft full lips. Almost longing to have someone to share her humble, but comfortable abode she finished dusting the snow off her clothes, opened her door, and collapsed on the large couch in her living room.
She lay like that for a while, basking in the ambiance of her home, until she heard a soft rustling sound coming from her bedroom. Her eyes flew open, and she went to investigate the sound.
“ Nothing but an opened window,” she whispered to herself as she closed the window. She breathed in deeply, and decided that she needed a hot relaxing bath.
Ever since she started working at the morgue, her imagination had been overreacting. Dreams weaved themselves in her sleep about the misshapen corpses that she had seen that day. Her dad had always wanted her to follow in his footsteps. He had also worked in a morgue, but he died, with a promise that she would never be lonely, because he would always be there.
“Aaah. She said as she soaked in the peach-mango scented bath. There was nothing to worry about. But as she got out she happen to glance in the mirror and she saw what she had been afraid of, a man dressed in tatters and rags with a bloodied scalpel.
“Hello daughter,” its lipless mouth said.
And at that moment she knew she wasn’t dreaming any more.
