Beast sees her waning.
All defenses down, he'll pounce.
Unexpected kill.

She didn't see him
Lurking still at her table
Eyes gleaming darkly.

She recognizes
the last signs of his presence
right before the fall.

Ribs stick out in spite
but it can't happen to me,
Naively she thought.

Beast laughs at this, while
cynicism says different.
She withers quickly.

Swift death takes her hand
Beast chitters over her corpse.
Anorexic girl.
