So Strange

 

  Auntie Mary drinks some more cheer. She feels cold

and gets back into bed, pulling the blankets on the

bed over her, exposing Mr Shadow's nude body to

the cold.

  She tries to wake him again. She stretches herself

out alongside him, and feels him vibrate as he snores.

She pulls the blankets back over the two of them, 

and cuddles him.

  She tries to sleep, but she can't. She can still hear 

the Man outside, having the electric lights on makes

no difference. The Man is still outside.

  Auntie Mary falls from the bed, and stumbles to her 

feet. She trips towards the mirror. Se looks into it, her

face looks so strange, she cries out.

  Mr Shadow half wakes up, mumbles and goes back

to sleep again.
