Challenge: Pumpkin Pie #4 - Bump in the Night
Word Count: 99
Summary: The nights are the worst time for David.
Notes: Working and travelling
It’s the nights that make him question it all. It’s always cold, no matter where he finds shelter, and the relentless wind hurls sand against the walls; it sounds like the sea he always wanted to see. He lays there, huddled into a ball, listening. Always listening.
Things move in the night. He never wants to see what they are, would never dare, but he can hear them. It’s enough; more than enough.
He lays with his eyes wide open, fixed, staring at nothing. He waits for his heart to slow its noisy pounding, and prays for the sunrise.
