Quotable Poe Week Two-Donna Mathews

“There is a room, down a dark hall, locked and guarded. Inside reside the scariest of monsters.” Her eyes wide, “What kind of monsters?”

“Hmmm… how to say it…they’re more apparition. You don’t always see them as much as feel their chilly fingers on your neck.”

The girl shuddering but continuing, “Take me there; I want to see.”

“You don’t know what you ask. I was never really insane, except on occasions where my heart was touched.”

“Touched by what?” she whispered.

“Touched by terror, my dear girl. Wild, unleashed fears live in the room down the dark hall.”
