This week I'm featuring an intro from a book that will be perfect for the R.I.P. VIII Challenge.
May - 2013
"MONSTER MOTHER is sitting on the bed when the triangle of light under the door flickers. It moves, dancing sideways then settles.
She stares at it, her heart thumping. Something is out there, waiting."
Silently Monster Mother pushes herself out of bed and creeps to the farthest corner of the room --as far away from the door as she can. She presses herself back into the triangle between the walls trembling, eyes watering with fear. From the window behind her, electric security spots cast tree shadows across the floor. They shift and bend, fingers scratching across the room, finding and touching the shadow under the door. She scans the place -- the walls, the bed and the wardrobe. Checks ever corner, every crack in the plaster. Anywhere at all that The Maude can crawl in. Monster Mother knows more about The Maude than anyone here does. She'll never tell what she knows though, she's too scared."
