The babysitter's frantic call hadn't told Karen much. The teenager's words had been interspersed with shrieks and the sound of slamming doors. Seeing the girl now, sat on the front steps, knees drawn up to her chest, rocking to and fro, as though she'd seen a ghost, did little to reassure her.
"Thank God you're here. I've locked that thing in upstairs." She jumped up the minute Karen approached, and darted away from her, eyes wide in terror. "Don’t you dare touch me. I don't get paid enough for this shit. I didn't believe them when they said … Freak!"
Karen suppressed a sigh and let herself into the house. So much for a fresh start in a new place.
One night of unforgettable passion had left her with a legacy of looking over her shoulder. Not that she could blame folks. The first time her adorable baby had transformed in front of her, Karen hadn't believed her eyes either.
