Just as it was locked, a huge claw got lodged into the porch doormat. I grabbed a flashlight from the drawer and shined it onto the porch. The clawed hands crawled back into the thick forest. I collapsed onto the floor with a broken sob repeating the promise of “Never again. Never again. Never again.” An elderly woman I knew as my grandmother knew just what happened.
