“She's here,” muttered a lanky figure as it scuttled down a
dark passageway, “She's finally here.”
The figure capered around a corner and into a small room lit
by intermittent light streaming through the floor boards above.
“Soon be time Master, the Pretty one is here,” said the
man to the darkness around him.
A crooked grin played across his grimy face, and he
licked his cracked lips. A series of poorly stacked boxes stood
in front of him. Pausing to take in the sounds of the room
above him, he then clambered to the top of them, pressing his
bloodshot eye against the knot hole in the floor boards. His
eye took in the view just on the edge of his vision he could
make out the thigh high socks of a girl sitting at a desk.
“Oh yes, she is here,” said the man almost sliding off the
boxes in excitement, “Have to be clever and quick, Master
wants and needs her fear in one piece.”
He sat on the floor and pulled out a small rusty knife and
added a fresh cut to the lines already scored down his arm. He
took a moment to savor the pain and then licked the blade
“No, must not use the knife, not yet, must use the needle
as the Master instructed,” said the dark figure.
He scrambled back to the ground and gathered himself
together, brushing his long damp hair out of his face and
readjusted his dank trench coat. He took the moment to
remember what his Master had said about trapping the girl,
and calmed his breathing.
“First I've got to shut the Library door, and then get into
the room,” He said to the dark in the room, with one last look
up at the ceiling, he turned and scuttled off.
