  • She looked just like the woman in his picture. They weren’t exactly the same; the girl in the photo had a short, blonde bob, and in front of him was a braided brunette. But their faces were nearly identical.

  • All at once a blinding light coursed through the space. Jerry and the woman froze. And then a creature appeared, seemingly from the air itself.

  • He had never seen something so grotesque. The creature’s eye pierced through the dust that it sent flying. Jerry looked at the woman, and, with a twinge of guilt, picked her up and threw her in the direction of the monster. The creature chomped down, and Jerry made his escape.
