Events during Last Night

There was a scratching on my door last night.

The hall light was on outside on the landing, but I saw no shadows slipping into my apartment from under the door.

It was a rhythmic scratching, nails on wood, for about 5 minutes and then it stopped. No footsteps away from the door, no voices, only a silence that filled the apartment.

A silence more terrifying than the scratching itself.

I slept with the light on.
