Her feet feel heavy as she pads her way down the cold weather worn steps of the cathedral. She has no idea what brought her too those steps; she just knows she’s needed there. When she reached the top she met a young priest and some rugged looking man. The priest stepped forward and extended his hand. “Welcome my child, we have been expecting you.” She stares at the priest but doesn’t take his hand. A shadow creeps past the corner of her eye; close to where the other man stood. Her gaze flicked toward him before they widen in sock. What once was a man is now a nightmarish creature with glowing green eyes, and a shadow where the rest of his body should have been. He changed, but how is that possible? She returns her gaze to the priest who seemed completely unaware of the horror that was unfolding behind him. The shadow moved closer, and closer, she tried to run, to scream, but she couldn’t. She even tried to warn the priest… nothing. She watched as the priest was taken by the monster. A light glow surrounded him for a moment as his soul was ripped free. He made no sound as he was being devoured; he just kept staring at her, the look of terror and surprise apparent in his eyes. Those eyes seeped into her soul, she felt as if they were crying out to her, blaming for not acting fast enough to save him from this fate. Once the priest was gone there was nothing between it and her. The shadow loomed ever closer, hunger glowing greedily in her direction. She backed up slowly taking care not to slip, if she did she would certainly fall to her death. The creature moved toward her, its green eyes pierced her heart leaving a cold dead feeling. She was halfway down the steps when the creature smiled and vanished. She woke with a start in her room taking deep breaths to calm herself. It took her a while to notice where she was. That was the weirdest dream I’ve ever had in my life. Sighing she flopped back down on her pillow one arm draped over her forehead. I need to stop drinking coffee before bed. Staring up at the support beams above her bed she thought. I wonder what it all meant.
