The Nasty Man

Firstly, apologies to those who were expecting a Shark Knight Rises story this week. This thing happened, and then this other thing happened…and then I forgot. Oops.

You’ve got a drabble instead, though…

The Nasty Man

Jennifer slumps down on the end of her charge’s bed. “You know why I got cross earlier, don’t you?”

Katie, already safe under her covers, shrugs.

“You can’t just go wandering off like that.”

Katie sinks deeper, two little eyes all that remain top-side.

“Any nasty man could have taken you away, you know that?”

Katie smiles.

“It’s not-”

The room’s shadows quickly merge, seeping forward with shape and substance, black arms dragging Jennifer back into a hungry abyss. She screams, but Katie hears nothing.

Then, silence.

“There’s only one nasty man,” Katie whispers, “and he seems to quite like me.”
