Eve slept soundly, her dreams making her smile in her sleep. She was stroking the beautiful horse standing in the street, its eyes staring at her as if they could communicate in a silent language.
Suddenly the horse’s neck twitched, and jerked itself away from her massaging hand, straining to see the intruder. They both heard it, it began with the sound of purring, but then they heard a chirp, hiss, and finally a growl emit from an unknown creature. The horse took off running down the street, leaving Eve alone to defend herself against the new enemy.
Then, a distinct scream emanated through the air, and a large slick coated cat presented itself to her. She froze, the panther stared at her with a rage in its eyes. Another scream brought her to a conscious state, her head snapped as she jumped from the cot. She was in the Engine House, she was safe. It was just a dream. Then she heard the eerie scream, the same as in her dream.
Running to the door, she peeked into the hall to see the shiny haired cat staring at her, a sleek black panther. She slammed the door, and found furniture to block it for extra protection. She could hear the hissing at the other side of the door, the sound of a hungry feline.
Eve looked around the room and spotted a refrigerator in the corner. “Damn, these guys lived here, of course.” She ran to it and opened the door. No food. Then she opened the freezer to discover several steaks. “God, this will work.” She seized them and put them on a nearby counter to thaw. “Ok, little pussy. I have a treat for you, just be patient, little kitty.”
She went to the window and looked up at the sky. The sun was a little past the noon high, she had about nine hours. “Perfect.”
