“Jasper left me the lamp. It had a glass globe underneath it, a single eyeball floating inside. Creepiest thing I’d ever seen. “Keep it warm!” he said. He never came back, for me, the lamp or his daughter.”
“Mama gave me the lamp when I moved out. I had grown up with it, that little lump of flesh and two bulging eyes.”
“I didn’t want it, but I took it. The curled-up monster inside freaked me out.”
“‘Its eyes just opened,’ my daughter screamed from the basement. Then she screamed again and I heard glass shatter.
