It started with a tap on the ceiling, then it grew a heartbeat and a pulse. The beast calls to Cassie nightly in a world beyond her own—the great abyss. Her husband, Brian, insists medication will make it go away, but when Cassie discovers he has found another love...she questions where she truly belongs. This week's story is called Strings.
You can find Strings in Abyss, 3 Tales to Chill Your Bones, Volume Five.
