    In the night
    a shadow disentangles
    from the black

    And begins
    to move
    matching her footsteps

    Click of heels
    on
    wet stone

    She is unaware
    at
    first

    But the shadow
    continues
    to follow

    An icy hand
    grips
    her heart

    Against her better
    judgement
    she looks back

    Behind her
    a shadow solidifies
    a plume of breath marking it's movement

    Quickly she turns
    and begins
    to walk faster

    Behind her
    the footsteps
    quicken

    Her heart
    begins a drum solo
    in her chest

    And she starts
    a litany in her head
    "I am almost home"

    Ahead
    she can see
    the outside light on her porch

    A cone
    of warmth
    almost within reach

    Three steps
    and she is there
    fumbling for her key's

    Finding them
    she stops
    suddenly

    Pin drop
    quiet
    nothing moves

    Did she lose him?
    Is he gone?
    strange

    Just her
    imagination
    nothing there

    She shrugs
    and fits
    the key in her door

    She turns
    back
    a quick look

    A glint of steel
    a sharp
    pain

    Blood fountains
    painting the air
    a new macabre air brush

    She knows nothing more.
