[Formerly Featured/#2 Horror]

There is something eerie about this place -- this village of silent, maddened people.

In 1922 my Papa told me of a faceless entity that lurks amongst us in our isolated slice of Russia. The locals have kept this horror alive for a century, though the only ones who claim to have seen the Folveshch have succumbed to a life of sightless silence. 

My name is Stefan Alyovich and the people around me are changing. They slip into worsening delirium and hysteria every winter, and I ask myself: how much longer before I'm the only sane one left?

... The only one left alone with the Folveshch.

It could be seasonal depression as well, not necessarily loss.
I really like the way of how you write. The first sentence made me want to read more, wich I will certainly do!
