The Nightmare Beast

 

 

It's a living thing, you know.

 

It's out there in the dark.  It waits for the night and it takes us and looks for the dark places in our memories. 

 

And then we scream.

 

It used to have friends. Way back, right after the camps there was a whole herd of them.  Herd.  Do I mean herd?  Flock maybe?  A whole lot of them anyway.  And nearly every night we nearly all screamed.

 

Now I think there's just one and maybe it's getting a bit old. It only comes out now and again.  But it hasn't lost all its teeth. I know that.

 

And it can always find us wherever we are.  If I'm home at the VA it can find me.  In the van, in a fancy hotel or a run down motel.  It can always find whichever one of us it wants to take a bite out of that night.

 

Doesn't seem to come after Hannibal or the mudsucker very much at all now.  Or maybe they've just learnt to deal with it more quietly, never thought of that.

 

Damn, I never thought of that.

 

I've never told anyone about the nightmare beast.  They already think I'm crazy.
