Something was wrong here.

That isolation chamber wasn’t meant to be open for a start, nor was it supposed to be empty.

Where the hell was it, and where was everybody else?

Why was it so quiet?

Vik’s eyes scanned furtively around the lab for flickers of movement, ears straining for claws tapping on linoleum.

    I never even saw that light until someone else mentioned it. Pretty scary indeed. Well done.

    I’m still running! I felt like I was there. Thanks.

  4. Oh, I see…we are walking the same path. 😀 Great story.

  5. I, too, missed the light. Once you see it, the vision sticks. Thanks for seeing it and telling a wonderful tale.

  6. Good scary story. That would rank near the top for a teacher’s worst nightmare. Well done.

    Love it! And that’s saying something as I’m not really into the fantasy-dragons type writing.

  9. Excellent piece of fantasy. Nice.

    Had to google nanomorph which means I got double for my money – a great story and a new word. Thanks!

    Great fantasy tale, I’m still running down the corridor, in the opposite direction!
    Well done
