House on the Hill



MOYO FOUND THAT she didn’t quite black out. She’d keeled over but had not really fainted. She wondered why she hadn’t though. Her heart was thumping at an erratic rate enough to make it possible, and her head seemed to be swirling like a rolling ball. And Maje, the crazy mean boss, had let go off her hand and she was on the cold, wood-tiled floor of the hallway.

Pressing a hand against her forehead, Moyo bit back a moan and forced her spinning head up. Then another scream, more like a screech now, peeled out of her.

He… It… the Thing was still standing in between the doorway and was looking down at her.

Bent… or hunched, whilst still standing, over her really.

He… It… whatever it was,  was standing erect on two legs… limbs… like every human being, except that it wasn’t human. It wasn’t a human being… it couldn’t be. The legs—limbs—it was standing on were covered in thick, very, very, extra-very thick and dark curly hairs. Hairs that was more like furs. And they covered the lower part of his limbs which were visible from the cotton shorts he… it was wearing. Its feet were large, absurdly large and flat… and bare.
