Idol Survivor: "In The Shadows"

In The Shadows
idol survivor | daily-fic challenge, day 16 #1


There might be something
in those shadows—ghosts,
or even monsters.
Anything at all.

So then, what is it?

Lurking, listening,
and silently scheming
until our vigilance
falls away…

What does it want from us?
And worse, what will it take?

Don't look away, don't
think it might be nothing—
because if you are wrong,
what then?

There is that chance,
but it is more likely
danger shifts and drifts
its way into new forms, instead.

There could be shadows
in those shadows, hiding
something stranger still.
We cannot be certain.

But it is deep inside
that possibility,
that the real story
can finally begin.
