Walls. 
<br>
That’s all Ryan could think when he looked around. Bare, dull, dusty walls. He had purchased his new home sight unseen only two months ago, but aside from his desk, bed, and a microwave the entire two-story Georgian home was empty.<br>
He was displaced from the heart of the historic town center just enough to avoid prying eyes, but as Ryan stood watching the sun sink lower from a second-floor window, he was close enough to see the dazzling refractions as the dimming light rode the rippling waters. Ryan was in his “office” or room with a desk covered with ancient papers and books. It was a cornucopia of crazy. There were aged and cracked leather-bound books of Eastern European witchcraft intermingled with a virtual encyclopedia of books dealing with the occult, superstitions, and magic. Strewn about were photocopies of an 8th-century manuscript transcribed to tell the horror of ocean-dwelling, humanoid beasts that remain hidden from mankind and on top of it all were a pile of copied photographs that the now deceased Elliot-Calthrope had taken of the local ruins.<br>
Ryan had stared at the symbols and horrid scrawls so carefully documented on those pages that his eyes had begun to burn. He sighed while looking out at the distant water and turned back towards his desk.<br>
“Time to get back to work,” he said to no one.<br>
Maybe it was the strain on his eyes or the way the dusk light was falling into the room but for the first time, Ryan noticed something on the wall in front of his desk. <br>
“What the…”<br>
On his knees, he got as close to the wall as he could and yes, there just above the ornate baseboard was a something bleeding through the dusty old paint.<br> 
And then, there it was again. That old feeling, that dog with a bone mentality, the ravenous need for answers. Ryan darted quickly to the bathroom to grab a rag then set to work cleaning the wall.
