Jacob could hear what sounded like a thousand voices calling his name from the dark, hissing and moaning in a sickly chorus as if they were one voice–taunting him from the moon shadows beneath the trees–beneath the low lying limbs in tall grass. The moon was as bright as ever and the shadows beneath the trees as dark as a black hole. They were everywhere, much to his dismay, and he was terrified.
