It had been such a normal night. Lynne had dropped into dreamless sleep. Waking, she paused to enjoy her doll collection , and then stepped through the half-open bathroom doorway. Flicking on the light, she turn toward the toilet.
She blinked, looked again. Please, please don’t let this be real! She squeezed her eyes shut, opened them; afraid to look directly into the toilet, she let her gaze drift there slowly.
It was still there, only now its ugly, sinister head was resting on the rim.
Screaming, mindless, she slammed the bathroom door and ran.
“Snake! Snake! Snake in my toilet!”
