There's Someone at the Door

There's Someone at the Door

by Jay Darkmoore

“I’ll be right back.” She heard his voice once more. The sound of heavy breathing behind her. She turned and a bolt of terror tore through her, as he stood there, face bloodied, eyes jellied and jaw hanging low.

Fiction writer Ruth is preparing for a long-needed trip away with her husband Simon to the Scottish Highlands, they settle down for the night following a long day of working and packing. 

The car needs fuel, and the snow is falling heavily outside. Simon gives Ruth a peck on the cheek, leaving her alone in the dark. 

Plagued by nightmares and with the night-growing teeth, Ruth awakens with a heart filled with terror. 

Simon is home safe and sound, but there's a knock at the door. 

But is the stranger malevolent? Or is it trying to give a warning?
