Hush little baby

Post by Weird Beard » Sun Oct 14, 2018 11:31 pm

I wake to darkness. My child whines in my arms so I rock him gently until he sleeps. Instinctively, I know not to move in case he wakes.

A presence outside draws closer, accompanied by an unnatural, sickly glow that seeps through cracks in the walls. I see the small decayed room around me, with one wall mostly filled with tally-marks. When I look down I see it is not my child, but a grotesque, unearthly thing.

A scream swells inside but the creature scratches me and consciousness slips away, but not before I add another mark on the wall.
I peek through the cracks from a world where Reality Fractured
