She has lain down before him, her eyes unfocussed. Just before being possessed, or attacked… or just after… In the grip of a near-hypnotic sleep, she hadn’t heard him climb onto the window ledge. Behind the window, he had watched his prey numbed from the wait, helpless before him. And when desire grew strong, he set a quiet foot on the bedroom floor.
