A single window is open in the house. This particular night in October is meant to be the coldest of the year. Ophelia Stone lies in her bed soaked in sweat as she tosses and turns in her sheets. Her curtains dance around like practised ballerinas from the wind, eventually blowing outside the open window. It's freezing, yet the sleeping girl looks like she's inside a sauna. Between her heavy breathing, a quiet whimper leaves her parted lips as her claws dig into the palms of her hands. Liquid pools against the linen bedsheets, staining them a dark crimson.

Isaac Lahey's eyes snap open at the scent of blood. He lurches up in the bed and quickly scrambles out of the guest room in his friend's house, darting down the corridor and into her room. His face falls at her figure illuminated by the moonlight streaming into the room and rushes over to her. The boy crouches down and takes one of her hands, prying her claws out of her delicate skin. "Fi," he calls out worriedly, trying to wake her up out of the horrendous nightmare she's in. "Ophelia!"

He barely comprehends her eyes opening, then he's slammed up against the wall. The plaster cracks against the impact of his body and Isaac flinches as a picture frame falls to the ground beside him. The girl's eyes blaze a dangerous red as her claws press into his neck, her lips curling back as she snarls. Veins trail down her cheeks as her eyes lock onto the carotid artery in his neck. Isaac suddenly realises that she's not fully here. She's awake but she's not present. He had heard about how she attacked Scott at the animal clinic not so long ago; maybe this is something similar? Maybe she's hallucinating?
