Dad

Attenuation


Its a long held myth that children and animals operate on an alternate frequency than us adults; percieving things differently as a product of their innocence. But much like Joel Haley Osment claiming he could see dead people, so it was with my father when he heard a young voice announce, "I can see him."

My father was in the store and there was a child in his mother's cart staring right at him when he turned around. "I can see him."

"Of course you can son, he's not trying to hide from you."

"I know." The child in the cart said. "He's a monster."
