Andi sighed and threw the book across the room. The standard lamp fell, flickered once and died. Darkness flowed across the floor and up the walls. The room was dark, dark with the furred black that swallows the light.

The clock ticked once. Andi waited for the tock but the soft thick darkness swallowed the sound. Then, shockingly, there was a sudden light, and Andi realised everything had changed.
