Excerpts

From Troubletwisters

++Come to us. Troubletwisters, join us... welcome, most welcom!++

The twins sup around and tried to head for the door, though now it was only a tiny rectangle at the end of a distorted tunnel of walls. Their feet still moved, but it was no use—the rod was fixed in place above the bed and they couldn't let go.

++We see you! We see you!++ crowed the voice triuphantly. ++So close, so close!++

As the voice spoke, the watercolor animals on the walls twisted and writhed out of their frams, morphing into hideous, three—dimensional shapes with bulging eyes like monstrous goldfish, eyes that rotated and shifted to peer intently at the twins.

Even worse than their attention was the fact the eyes were entirely white, without iris or pupil, and the whiteness was buzzing and blurry, like the worst kid of fluorescent light.

++We see you! We see you!++

Jaide almost yanked her arms out of her shoulder sockets as she tried to free herself from the rod. She kept her head down as she struggled, trying not to meet the gaze of those terrible eyes, the eyes that she felt were drawing them in, sucking them into some other place, some other dimension
