tick, tick, Jason was focusing on the sound of the clock. It kept him sane. It kept him calm. It was still dark. The door opened on his concrete box. Something was inside with him. Was it a friend or a foe? The thing in the darkness was getting closer, it's soft footsteps made almost no noise on the concrete. Jason spoke, "Who's there?" Nothing spoke back. It came closer. "Stop!" Jason yelled. It did. It opened it's mouth, and there was light. The creature was lifelike, but with scales. "Don't hurt me" said Jason "I won't." said the beast.
