Ghosts of the Night: Part Two

… As night finally drew close, I settled into my bed and hoped sleep would take me away from my restless thoughts. I was wrong. As the hours continued to trickle in, and as much as I tossed and turned, I still couldn’t shake off the image of that man’s eyes burning into me. Worse…
