Dancing #73

by

I turned to Lucy, smiling.
Here was no dancing, here was no music, here there were no dead. Just a homely old inn set within ancient forest. My relief filled me with euphoria and I gathered Lucy to me and kissed her passionately.
"Now you and I have seen it," I said at length. "Let us return to the warmth of our hotel."
She turned with me, turned our backs to the inn. But her head still looked behind, towards that welcoming building.
I feigned reluctance when she said "Could we not perhaps look within? I am thirsty and hungry."

    No, no, no! Don’t go. Lucy is one of them!
