She tossed and turned, but sleep wouldn’t come. The bedroom was cold! She could see her breath, the bed was cold too!
The furnace must have broken!
Pulling the covers tightly around her, Lou burrowed into them. They felt damp and icy!
Dammit whats wrong.
Reluctantly she got out of bed and grabbed her robe. Her fingers touched something gelatinous. She screamed and recoiled! Fumbling in the dark, she looked for the light switch.
Frantically she switched it on. Nothing. She reached for the bedside lamp, it didn’t work either. Pulling back the drapes, she looked out of the window. The world was engulfed in fog. Heavy, dark and thick. Swirling like clouds.
I feel eyes on me!
Carefully, slowly and trying not to panic, Lou made her way downstairs and into the kitchen. Pitch black, hard to move, hard to breath.
She found the flashlight in the cupboard next to the sink.
She switched it on, it worked. Shining it into the darkness of her home gave her some relief, there was nothing to see.
I need to get some heat in here.
Lou made her way down to the basement and the furnace.
She opened the basement door, letting out a cold stench. It came from something unfamiliar, something terrifying. She didn’t want to look, but couldn’t help it. A dozen distorted, decaying faces looked back at her, their mouths open in a silent scream.
Oh dear God in Heaven!
