The Thing on the Doorstep by Somnolent-Droid The Thing on the Doorstep by Somnolent-Droid
"Edward was thirty-eight when he met Asenath Waite. She was, I judge, about twenty-three at the time; and was taking a special course in mediaeval metaphysics at Miskatonic. The daughter of a friend of mine had met her before–in the Hall School at Kingsport–and had been inclined to shun her because of her odd reputation. She was dark, smallish, and very good-looking except for overprotuberant eyes; but something in her expression alienated extremely sensitive people. It was, however, largely her origin and conversation which caused average folk to avoid her."

Extract from HP Lovecraft's 'The Thing on the Doorstep'

I don't know about the story - but I simply love this. The feel of dread and the smile that you have portrayed are just... wow... and I would ask you to keep working because you are improving beautifully :heart:
