Shiney

Shiney

The first hell-spawn to slip into our dimension was a Magpie Demon. It was attracted by the glimmering lights of the machine and dipped through during calibration. I was slightly concerned. I covered the device in a tarpaulin and quietly closed the garage door.

That week I mislaid my front door key three times, but cursed only myself. It was the children who truly understood. When their favourite teddy bears both lost their left eye, and then the batteries went missing from each of their toys, they cried inconsolably. They knew; this really was the end of the world.

Nice subtlety. Well done.
