The sound of shattering glass woke her from a deep sleep. groggily, she got up, trying to orient herself in the dark. She could make out the broken window and the shards of glass strewn across the floor. And then she saw it. Lying in the middle of the room, its blank eyes staring up at her, was a human skull.
She let out a scream and stumbled backwards, tripping over a chair and landing hard on the floor. The skull seemed to mock her from its place on the ground, its grin seeming wider than before. She scrambled to her feet and ran for the door, her heart pounding in her chest.
She didn’t know what was going on, but she knew she had to get out of there. She didn’t know who had left the skull in her room, but she had a feeling that they were watching her. She could feel their eyes on her as she fled the scene, the skull’s grin burned into her mind.
