suspense story

Alicia, a blonde, angelic and timid young girl had dreamed about being a bride had been chilled by her husband’s rough character .she loved him very much, although sometimes she gave a light shudder. He, for his part, loved her profoundly but never let it be seen. For three months -they lived in a particular kind of bliss. The house in which they lived influenced her chills and shuddering to no small degree. She passed the autumn in this strange love nest. She was determined to cast a veil over her former dreams and live like a sleeping beauty in the hostile house until her husband arrived each evening. She grew thin. She had a light attack of influenza that dragged on insidiously for days and days and her health never returned one afternoon she was able to go into the garden supported on her husband’s arm ,suddenly Jordan ran his hand very slowly over her head ,and she instantly burst into sobs, throwing her arms around his neck . This was the last day she was well enough to be up. On the following day, she awakened feeling faint. The doctor said ‘She has a great weakness that I am unable to explain The next day, Alicia was worse. There was an anemia of incredible progression, completely inexplicable. She had no more fainting spells, but she was visibly moving toward death. Alicia dozed. With tireless persistence, he paced from one end of the room to the other. Suddenly she began to have hallucinations, vague image,-her eyes excessively wide she suddenly focused on one spot. Then she opened her mouth to scream, and pearls of sweat beaded her nose and lips. Jordan, Jordan ‘she clamored -Jordan ran to the bedroom and when she saw him she screamed with terror. She looked at him, she looked at the carpet and after a long moment of stupefied confrontation, she regained her senses. She smiled and took her husband’s hand in hers, caressing it, trembling, for half an hour. An anthropoid poised on his fingertips on the carpet, staring at her. The doctors returned, but to no avail .-a diminishing life, a life bleeding day by day. They observed her a long time in silence ‘Phew’The discouraged chief physician shrugged his shoulders ‘It is an inexplicable case ‘.’That’s my last hope Jordan groaned. Following the third day of this relapse, she never left her bed again. Her crepuscular terrors advanced now in the form of monsters that dragged themselves toward the bed and climbed upon the bedspread .then she lost consciousness Finally, Alicia died The servant stared for a moment at the pillow ‘Sir, she called Jordan in a low voice ‘There are stains on the pillow that look like blood ‘.There were two small dark spots. The servant raised the pillow but immediately dropped it and stood to tremble. Jordan felt the hair rise on the back of his neck. It was extraordinarily heavy on the dining room table he ripped open the case and ticking with a slash. The top feathers floated away, in the bottom of the pillowcase, among the feathers, slowly moving its hairy legs, was a large animal, a living, foul ball. It was so swollen one could scarcely make out its mouth . In five days ,in five nights ,the monster had drained her life away . These parasites diminutive in their habitual environment ,reach enormous proportions under certain conditions . Human blood seems favorable to them and difficult to encounter them in the feather pillow .
