Great hook. I intercepted my imagination when it tried to fill in the blanks, just so I could sleep tonight :D

This story was inspired by music created by a friend, PD. He called it an aural horror film. I was listening just as I asked for the random prompt.

Six minute story is brilliant as a daily mental excercise to write on a variety of topics. It involves a lot of trial and error before I finish in the given time.

I am often surprised which of my stories receive the most views, often those I planned to delete.
