The Call


A heart beats rhythmically, a rumbling growl then blends in, and soon a house is within reach. And inside the house lies Paul Wellington who is tossing and turning. The heart beat strides and outside near the end of the path, where the walkway meets bushes. “Paul” a voice whispers from the darkness. Responding to the call, he stands and then strolls toward the voice. 

His door opens, the voice calls to him again and he walks down the pathway, leading towards the woods, it is dark, desolate and the airstream sings along with the heartbeat, and through the bushes… the draft calls like lost souls, they whisper again, “Paul.”

Yellow eyes glint followed by a low rumbling growl and then it springs forward with a roar slashing at his throat.


Paul leaps out of bed grasping his throat gasping for air.

“Paul!” Julie is quickly by his side. “Baby, you’re fine. It was another nightmare,” she holds him against her bosom rubbing his head. “Ssh, it’s alright.” She rocks back and forth trying to comfort his trembling body.

And all the while Julie tries her best to comfort him, outside in the bushes at the end of the pathway. A snarl sounds from within the darkness. Yellow eyes slowly appear and with a grunt, it is gone.
