He gasped for breath and looked around. The room was dark but he could sense there was someone there. Hello he said, barely audible. No response. Hello? this time a bit louder. From the corner of his eye he saw a flicker of light. At thesame time his nostrils filled with the putrid stench of what smelled like rotting fish. The room started to shake, he lost his footing. Tyring to grab on to the nearest thing possible he screamed when he touched what may once have been a hand but now was bone with some slime like substance that he imagned was melted skin dripping like candle wax. He fell on the floor with a loud thump. The glass exploded from the window, a sliver oflight managed to snake into the room. He opened his eyes,it was no longer shaking. In fact he was lying on the floor of his bedroom. Nothing had changed from the last time he was there. Never doing magic mushrooms he thought.
