came a sound from behind him. He spun around, nearly tripping over his feet. But nothing was there. He listened closely and heard again
from the bedroom. He left behind the still-dark
bathroom and stepped further into the hallway. An unnatural light in the corner of his eye sought his attention – a small red light near the ceiling at the end of the hall – but he was focused on the doorway to the bedroom. He strained to hear any further sound, but he could only hear the
fading away behind him.
