Some think a Mantra can keep it from happening to them, others induce it into sick Halloween Games. It often bumps in the night casting shadows against the walls, hiding under your bed with a knife. Sometimes, though, horror is a simple melt of our vulnerabilities over blistering hot lava.

Originally published in Beat to a Pulp magazine back in 2009 as the magazine's halloween story.
Welcome to the Dark Softly Summer Bites series. These stories are bite sizes, shorter than usual—about 5-10 minutes long. I hope you dig the Summer Bites opening/closing! The regular program will resume in September.
Opening & Closing music: Mav Skye
Episode Music: Twin Peaks by Eitan Epstein Music
