The Apartment #185

It looked like Timmy, head jerking up and down like a wild beast, feeding on-
She saw Rick's arms prone across the floor. A dismembered leg.
Unwilling to comprehend, her scream, uncontrolled and hysterical filled her body and soul and rang out long and desperate into the unholiness of the cold, dark night.

    No, no... I live in a terrace house... and I double check my windows and my doors at night, though I know some things can bypass them... hehehe...
