Synopsis: Don't Look Into Their Eyes

Clock strikes noon. Edie is under the bed. It's her safe space, her resting place. She rests for the day but a creek from the door jerks her awake. Any noise or open doors and window is unsafe for her. She decides to investigate, the front door is open. Its latched deadbolt is preventing it from closing properly. She crawls over to close the door. Deadbolt unlatched, gentle push... the door doesn't close. She tries a few time, increasing in force, but something is preventing it from closing. She peers around the door, a demon is standing propped right up against it. She screeches, crawling away from it as fast as she can.

Synopsis: Don't Look Into Their Eyes (Part 2)

Edie rushes back under the bed. Covering her mouth and trying not to make any sounds, she hears the demon slithering closer and closer towards her, but than silence. She doesn't here anything. Poking a small peep hole through the divider that's on the foot of her bed, she peeks. The demon is standing still in the hallway unaware of her position. Something falls covering the peep hole. She jumps back thinking she might have been caught, but nothing. She goes back to her peep hole. Upon closer inspection, it's just a throw blanket that had fallen. She sticks her finger through the hole clearing the obstruction. She peeks through the hole again. This time the demon is not there, an empty hallway. Than another object falls covering the hole. She checks, another form of obstruction, she sticks her finger trying to clear it. It's out of reach. It's the very demon upside down on its head looking back at her through the peep hole.
