it was looking at me.
it was staring at me.
for a long while, i just stared back. looking straight into those glossy black eyes, i saw nothing. funny enough, that emptiness felt soothing. we didn’t move. i never could. my body was frozen in place, probably because of shock, or even wonder. but then, it did. gliding swiftly like a feather in wind, it circled around me. tattered cloth blanketed it’s body, up to it’s head like a hood. the scent was somewhat unnatural, but lovely. like morning dew, but mixed with a hint of iron. all i could do was look forward. helpless, i closed my eyes.
then i felt calm come over me, as i felt ice cold fingers covering my face. it truly was soothing.
then, i felt nothing.
