Door 2251... What is the story, here?


  1. Jana dodged a van that was speeding through the parking lot and ended up forced down the alley behind the strip mall.

    "Oh, brother," she sighed. "Dead end."

    She shifted into reverse and looked over her shoulder, preparing to back up, but as she turned her head, the sound of a screen door banging caught her attention. Looking back into the alley, she thought she saw light coming from the nearby door--just a crack leaking a few rays of florescent light, but then it was gone. Her eyes settled on the doorknob of the battered metal door, and as she watched, it turned, closing behind it whomever had been stealing a gaze at her in the alley.

    Jana's breath caught in the realization that someone had been watching her.
