[Formerly Featured/Novella/#2 in Horror]

There is something eerie about this village -- this hole 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 madness 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.

I'm having goosebumps and it still the first line.

It's the first line of the first chapter and someone already lost his mind XD

                              I just can't believe I choose to read it in the middle of the night XD
Hooked on the first line. I can tell this is gonna be a great story
I can't imagine how painful it is to lose a love one from something you can't fight back.
