The summons

Simultaneously sitting bolt upright in their beds, the two brothers cast their blankets aside and walked out of the bedroom.

They made no sound as they padded barefoot down the stairs, nor did they pay heed to the grandfather clock in the hall chiming the hour of midnight as they exited the house, closing the front door behind them with a soft click.

They followed winding roads down to the beach; halted beneath the pier where the moonlit waters lapped at the shore.

Before long, a hideous monster – half man half fish with bulbous lips, sharp teeth and green slimy scales – emerged and approached the boys.

Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn” snarled the beast.

“Cthulhu fhtagn” chanted the boys.

The creature turned and walked into the sea, disappearing in the night; the two boys followed, swimming out between the pillars underneath the pier, and dived beneath the icy waters.
