The Next Step

They call to her every night, the monsters deep in the abyss over the edge of the wall. She must walk the fine balance between madness and reality. She is destined to fall to one side or the other, but which side?

The Next Step was first published at Flashes in the Dark, then later published in Mav's Abyss, 3 Tales to Chill Your Bones, Volume Five.

Welcome to the Dark Softly Summer Bites series. These stories are bite sizes, shorter than usual—about 5-10 minutes long. I hope you dig the Summer Bites opening/closing! The regular program will resume in late September.

Opening & Closing music: Mav Skye

Episode Music: As You Were by AG
