Drags me in it's everlasting claws…

Washes over me

Calls-wait,

Oh yeah! I remember

If you whack it on something a couple times, it'll light up again!

Ha ha!

The flashlight exploded!

The house lit on fire!

Clings to me!

Burns my flesh!

Scares me!

Run awaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!

Huh?

A dream!

Darkness….
