The Narrow


Absolutely no one knew that inside the house, underneath the creaking floorboards, crawled a thin and spidery creature known as the Narrow.

Thin creature,  by  Derrick86
It’s long wispy white limbs bend and fold like sticks as it emerges in Evelyn’s moonlit room.  

The kind hearted Evelyn, beautiful in her youth, sleeps peacefully beneath the blanket that hardly bends under the Narrow’s light body, and is unaware that she is being watched by large black eyes.

The Narrow stares and waits, sharing the bed in the comforting presence of a warm bodied friend, with plans to leave before the blue morning light wakes Evelyn up.


(A friend gave a writing prompt for a four sentence story about something peculiar.)
