Chad stood in the darkness. He stared at his grandfather for a long time before attempting to enter the living room. He hated the sight of him. Everything about the old man was scary-the stories he told, the way he smelled, the way his long gray hair framed his face. His clothes were no more than rags and his breath was just as powerful as his stare.

A movement now as his Grandfather lit his corncob pipe. He struck the match and puffed slowly until the tobacco smoldered. He shook the match out and threw it into the fireplace. Smoke drifted into the air and vanished into darkness as Chad watched.

The old man rocked in his chair.

The fire roared. Shadows danced on the walls. Chad cringed as his grandfather began to nibble at the sores on his arm. Sometimes he spat them out and sometimes he didn't. Chad's stomach knotted at the sight.

"Chad," his grandfather said in a crackling voice. "Chad, I know you're there. Come into the fire so I can see you better." His voice became firm with the half devoured scab in his mouth.

Chad couldn't find the words to reply. His tongue was broken; his flesh crawled as he neared his grandfather. The hair on the back of his neck stood erect. Chad closed his eyes, hoping that this was just a dream. Yet he knew better. His father had dropped him off nearly an hour ago and wouldn't be back till morning.
