by Ashley Lauren Rogers

Back in the early days of YouTube, Kurt was a minor celebrity vlogger who screamed about video games he hated. Now, he’s left that behind him after he got married, and it’s been years since he’d even thought of his old online persona. Until one night where he is visited by a shadow person…who won’t stop tickling his feet. When Kurt and his wife Patty attempt to catch this shadow person, questions arise about the origins of this being. According to Patty’s favorite podcast, Darkness Calls, these tickling incidents could be the work of a ghost, an alien, a traveler of space-time…. But they have to figure out a solution soon, or else they’ll never experience a good night’s sleep again.
