They were eyes.
I thought they were eyes.
No, they were definitely eyes.
In a laneway just across from me.
It was really dark, so they stood out.
Two yellow, glowing eyes.
This is the story of a woman in a suburban park. It is a story containing a terrifying truth; monsters are real. Conspiracy theorist Kirby Medway has spawned this narrative, an eyewitness account of a life-changing supernatural visitation. Encounter is an attempt to stage the impossible: a sci-fi/horror tale of which HP Lovecraft would be proud.
