It was already dark and I decided to head back home. I set off walking alone down the poorly lit street. A figure in the distance caught my attention. My eyes still adjusting to the darkness, they narrowed. I couldn't make out who or what was in the distance other than a figure dressed in black with their back to me. I could see they were wearing a large hat. My curiosity grew stronger as I walked closer. The street lighting made harsh shadows and this person's hat was casting a shadow concealing their face. As I approached their head turned away, almost looking down towards the ground, I could see puffs of grey tangled hair poking over their shoulders weighed down by the unusual hat. It looked velvety, but very worn, and crooked. Then it struck me as I approached, the hat was slowly pulsating. I looked to the ground, I could see the pavement covered in small spiders, slugs, just like a turned over garden rock, they were dripping from the hat to the ground, crawling in all directions.
