I bolted upright, drenched in sweat and eyes as wide as saucers. It was just a nightmare, I told myself. That scenario was not even humanly possible. I took a sip of the water Tom left on my nightstand and tried to steady my breathing.

I tried to rationalize, but it was fleeting. He was probably just in the living room watching television while I slept. Despite the logic, I couldn’t seem to bite back the rising panic.
