Got out the shower, late last night.. The room was thick with steam. Dank, its soapy odor caught in my throat. My lungs, like sponges absorbed the moisture. I tip-toed out alone, silence rushed to fill my ears, I grabbed the railing to steady myself. A bit off-balance, I turned around slowly only to find I'd caught sight of something out the corner of my eye.. A slender being similar in size to myself only.. taller? Its skin was draped thin, almost translucent over its looming figure. It was hideous. It barely moved.. it just.. held itself up.. staring.. I stood frozen, naked, completely still as minute after minute slowly dripped by. My knuckles burnt white from holding the rail, I was suddenly overcome with exhaustion, My back ached, contorted in the wretched position I had been forced to hold while this creature breathed me in with unblinking eyes.. did it have eyes? I wasn't sure. I wanted to know.. I wanted to take a better look.. I should have known better.. What was quivering fear a moment ago, gave way to an itch.. the type that has to be scratched.. but this itch was not physical, it was a desire.. I was curious.. My mind and body no longer communicating, unconsciously I'd begun to turn around.. to look directly at that gaping absence of humanity.. My lungs burned and ached.. Had i forgotten to breathe?.. this whole time? The room was shifting out of focus.. darkness invaded my senses from all sides. I fell through space. Stars and planets perforated my shadowy figure.. I came to a few moments later. I stood up shakily, and grabbed the railing to steady myself. A bit off-balance, I turned around slowly but it was too late.. I'd caught sight of something out the corner of my eye.
