It sounds like child’s play. Keep Tony’s giant rag doll Mophead in your home for a week and win the £1000 bet. The trouble is, everyone who tries gets scared out of their mind. Maybe they should listen to Tony’s parting advice: “He doesn’t like to be left on his own for too long. It only makes things worse . . .”
It starts with little things: a chess game the kids shouldn’t know how to play, a game of hide-and-seek that goes on way too long, a strange voice just below the household noise… and the missing pounds of sugar.
Six follows Ren everywhere she goes, but something’s following him. It stalks him through the darkness of time and space, and it’s hard to tell whether it’s his past catching up, or reality giving way to what’s really there.
A darkly comic, twisted short story about sins, myths, and nightmares.
