Under The Bed (Follow for updates)

At 16, Petra’s mother disappeared. Petra had to learn to pay the bills, get good grades, maintain a job as well as maintain the family heirloom: a runed relic housing a dark myth.

Petra makes her offering to satiate the demon once a month like clockwork. The brand of food, though easily obtained, isn’t without its peculiar quirks. Petra doesn’t mind most of the time, but lately things have gotten a bit strange. Unfortunately, Petra has no one to turn to for answers. When strange turns into downright creepy, Petra feels herself being watched, followed and eventually led into a nightmare. The moon waxes and wanes through with each passing evening, and whispers from the past scream louder in the present.

Petra will find that some injustices only get worse with time. Will she have the courage to make the right decision?

Her natural beauty is…
