"Who's there?" you say to no one at hand.
"What's that?" you repeat and purposefully stand.
Peering wide-eyed, you sneak from your room, down the hallway and into the gloom. A flickering flame lights your way, keeping the monstrous shadows at bay.
"Hello?" you whisper into the dark. No one replies, perhaps it's a lark.

"Who's there, I say!" your breath comes in gasps.
"Answer me!" you stammer, about to collapse.
Silence... A groan... Something stirs in your wake...
"WHAT WAS THAT!" you scream, your legs start to shake.
Where are you?
Check back later if you need to get a clue... : )
