Reader Submission: The Thing in the Fog

gray and dreary

“It was Christmas Eve and I was at my grandparents. My boyfriend (now husband) did not live with me, but lived a few blocks away. It was planned he would walk to my apartment and wait for my family to return home.

So he began walking. As he walked, fog rolled in around him. When he was about a block away from my apartment, the fog was so thick that he could barely see anything in front of him. It was then that he heard strange noises in the fog, from just beyond his eyesight. Spooked, he sprinted the last bit of distance to the apartment.

Unnerved, he decided to lay on the couch and sleep until I returned. Upon falling asleep, he dreamed of a dark, shadowy figure. As the figure approached, he tried to tell it to leave and go away only to find he had no voice and couldn’t breathe. When he finally he did wake, he found my sister’s cat on his chest, desperately pawing at his face in an effort to wake him. As soon as he opened his eyes, a door slammed at the other end of the apartment. He was absolutely the only one there and all the doors had been closed when he arrived.”
