Freezing the Dusk

he raises his arm, pointing it directly towards me…

We are driving down the road, it’s dusk.

It is a super beautiful evening:
The road is deserted. It’s just us; the windows are down, feet are out the window, music is on, and there is a warm breeze.

I look over at the driver and I smile. Then I look back out the window,
and at that exact moment a shadowy little boy appears right next to the car
he raises his arm, pointing it directly towards me…

Instantly freezing the car, the wind, and my breath in a split second.
and then, seizing-terrifying-darkness.

Beneath My Skin

I can hear tiny little noises, almost like a scurrying.

I am at an empty old high school. It’s really dated, but not abandoned, I think it’s just the weekend. I’m walking around looking for some type of book, can’t seem to remember where I left it…
I walk into a random room, and I am startled to see three students standing there in lab suits, full on hazmat. They look at me horrified, and just say “run…. run before they get you!!” So I turned and ran. I had no clue what I was running from but I ran as fast as I could…
I ended up running down into a dark hallway, for all the logical reasons.
Now I’m cornered, lost, and I can hear tiny little noises, almost like a scurrying. I turn around. It’s dark but I can still see the floor, and there isn’t anything on the floor at all…  All of the sudden I feel hundreds if not thousands of tiny little things crawling all over my body. I can’t see anything on me but I can feel them.
They’re burrowing directly into my skin. I don’t see anything on me, but I see my skin starting to bleed and seep. Then the lab coats show up and just look at me horrified through their masks.”They’ve gotten her” they say, and I ask what “they” are, they respond “the parasites” then one of them pulls a gun out and shoots me
and everything goes black.

Transmogrified

She suddenly turns around to face us and has transformed…

I need to rescue my friend.
She’s trapped in a dark medical facility. Me and a group of faceless others, all wearing scrubs, get in to the facility. We make it down the hall and into her room with no problem.

Once we are in the room we start unhooking her from all kinds of machines. We move her into a wheelchair and start heading back out. She suddenly turns around to face us and has transformed into a bleeding horrific clown.

There is no mask, her face has actually contorted to the features a clown has. Except it’s bleeding; out of her forehead, cheeks, and chin….
a slow dripping blood. The faceless others freak out and run away.
I’m frozen there, as I hear her deadpan voice say “help me or become me” and then,   everything goes black.

Who’s facing the day? 

…impeccably clean, the left was nude.

We are in a big sterile room somewhere, where there were a bunch of Military people. Each one had on only a half of a uniform, vertically. From the collar down, the right side of  their body was uniformed, impeccably clean while the left side was nude. Not like hey I see your wang nude, just nude without focus on body parts. Every one of them was this way, it was just the way things were.
However there was a problem at hand: there was a comet heading straight towards earth expecting to make contact and we were the ones that were supposed to fix it somehow. But all they wanted to do was look for a cat. Literally drafting plans on how to find the damn cat while our humanity was in peril.
