If you’ve never been in the presence of pure evil, let me tell you that it’s palpable and overwhelms all your senses because its very nature is too raw for the sane mind to handle. That’s how it was last night, there was this tension in our bedroom, so powerful it woke me from a dead sleep.

That was when I caught an unnatural movement out the corner of my eye. I stumbled out of bed when I saw a tiny gray hand sticking out of my pregnant wife’s stomach. I shrieked as fingernails sharpened to points slowly and deliberately scratched at bloody belly flesh. I covered my mouth and swallowed bile at the same time that I was screaming.
