Wark had seen many weird things in his life, so he was not shocked a bit when he saw the face. It hung in the air, parallel to his face as he slept. Wark opened his eyes to look into a pair of ghostly eyes staring back at him.
He let out a breath of irritation and then waved his hand through the face. The apparition shimmered and flickered like a bad hologram in a cheap sci-fi movie and became stable like ripple after effect in a pond. Wark got up and the face hovered with him, now hanging above his head like a heavy stone, waiting to fall and crush his brain to pulp. Sleepy eyes and irritated by the intrusion in his life, Wark stepped into his small bathroom and picked up his toothbrush, as he started brushing his teeth he gave a good look to the face now hovering above his head.
The face looked like it was made of blue smoke, barely hanging together in the mortal air. It waved with the little air currents and swung back in its original shape like a spring. Blades of sunlight cut through the dark curtains in Wark's flat, through the lines in the face's ghost skin and through its eyes deep and sunken. Wark slowly brushed his teeth, keeping an eye on the face which was now looking at Wark with the intensity of a hungry dog.
Wark finished brushing his teeth, washed his face and wet his hair. The face watched it all. Wark walked back in his room and sat down on his bed. He fished his shoes from under his bed and took out the rolled socks from them. He smelled them, the pair smelled as pungent as yesterday. He calmly put on the socks, and then the shoes as the face stared on. He warmed up a little by jumping on the spot, did a few stretching exercises, working from his legs to his arms and then his neck. The face hovered on and looked at Wark going thorough the motions.
Finally, Wark turned, took a deep breath, screamed a scream of absolute, mad terrifying terror and ran like hell.
Might as well have good breath and shoes on your feet if you are running away from the supernatural.
