Description

The unseen creature whose ravenous fangs dog your every step as your footfalls echo down the midnight alleyway.

 —

A long, icy shadow looming over you, making the hairs on your neck rise and your breath turn to ragged puffs of mist.

Unearthly howls that pierce the night, pulling you from the comfort of sleep with feverish, heart-pounding dread.

 —

Second main story upset me. It was about abuse and rape. I lived through that. Do not consider that a story for enjoyment.
