Excerpt
"Tell me about the nosebleed."

"It happened near the end of September. It was a week night, because both Sara and I had to go to work the next day."

"Good. You're very relaxed. Very relaxed. Simply continue to tell me about the nosebleed. Just give me your thoughts as quickly as they come to you."

"I woke up screaming. I remember seeing eyes. They were huge . . . and black. Not human. I couldn't look at them. I knew if I looked at them I would be sucked into them."

"Uh . . . I don't know. They were trying to control me . . ."

"I woke up . . . I . . . I couldn't look at my wife . . ."

you woke up."

before I woke up. I don't know what made me wake up, but when I did, I looked around me. I saw these . . . beings moving around our bed."

"No, not human." Daniel fidgeted, rolled on the pillow, trying to make himself more comfortable. "Short in height. Gray in color. Big eyes, huge eyes, black. Thin limbed. Real thin. So thin limbed that it was hard to believe the legs could even support the rest of their bodies. They made sounds-like insects. They moved quickly."

"No . . . no, they just looked like big­eyed grasshoppers, or something."

"These beings, then, appeared as huge grasshoppers to you?"

me of grasshoppers. How they moved-quick, jerky. But they had human­like arms and legs. And those eyes; damn, those eyes were something."

"How could you see all this detail in the middle of the night?"

"I . . . I don't know. Uh, wait. I remember now. It was because the room was glowing, kind of. It was like daylight. I could see everything."

"She was sleeping. I tried to wake her, but she just slept like she was drugged. I yelled at her, trying to wake her. I was scared."

"Then they came right up to me and told me to remain calm. I said, 'Calm? How can I be calm? Who are you people? I'm not calm! I'm scared! Sara! Help me! Please!'"

"It's all right, Daniel. They're not here now. You're safe."

"One guy . . . being. He was taller than the others, about my height. He took the blanket off me. The others didn't. The others just stood there."

"And he was like a doctor, I think. He seemed like a doctor, or the leader or boss. He was the one who knew what he was doing."

"I think the being was a male. I felt he was male. I couldn't tell, though, by just looking at them. They didn't have breasts or genitals-none that I could see. I didn't notice hair or skin blemishes. They seemed to be all one color. Odd."

"They just stood there quietly. Almost as if they were . . ."

"Protecting? Assisting maybe?-the doctor. They looked as though they were waiting for something. His commands? These beings are small, like kids. Thin limbed and light. Kind of frail looking. There were rustling sounds . ."

"Partly. But they did something to me as well. I know they did."

"Let's go back to the part when the 'doctor' took the blanket off you. What did he do then?"
