Finish the story begins with: “Where did they go?”
Jez looked sheepishly around. Not a sound. Not a sight of….. But he knew what he had seen.
They were here one second and gone the next.
Not an apparition. He was sure of that. He didn’t think you made eye contact with apparitions.
He searched among the ruins for some sign that might validate his sense of bordering upon encroaching insanity. He had this feeling of intense anxiety, like he had something to prove and prove it he would. He could sense them, just out of sight, out of reach, teasing him as they had this past day and a half.
In his mind he could hear them tittering to themselves as they led him on this merry chase. He began to wonder if their plan was to wear him down to a state of exhaustion and then feast upon him as they had Carson, his one time offsider.
