When You Meet A Monster

She turns around and comes face to face with the creature that followed her. Its eyes stare at her, full of hatred. This morning she thought the only horror she’d face was the slump she seemed stuck in but no, she just had to trod into a worse fate. Her desire to scream rises but she does not for fear it’ll attack. For a second, she dwells on the desolation she had encumbered herself in and then makes a foolish choice. You see there’s no such thing as reasoning with a monster, especially one so full of hatred and hunger. Yet, she moves like a peace offering, her hands out as she backs away.

It is useless as the creature pounces on her, eating her up until there’s nothing left of her to see.
