Do I Bother You at Night?

Overview

They say nothing ever happens in Kansas.

Sylvester Petersen used to think so too. That is, until a mysterious new neighbor moves in next door, seemingly out of nowhere.

Overview

They say nothing ever happens in Kansas.

Sylvester Petersen used to think so too. That is, until a mysterious new neighbor moves in next door, seemingly out of nowhere. His handful of friends - people who tried to help him cope with the sudden death of his wife - think that it might be an opportunity for him to get reacquainted with the world outside his farmhouse and to build a new relationship with his neighbor. But that idea is soon snuffed out as strange events begin to happen around him. None of them wrong. Just strange: driving in the middle of the night, the sulfur-like odor coming off of him, the fact he doesn't talk to anyone.

And what about that dog?

Sylvester chooses the logical explanation and ignores the peculiar behavior. But when other oddities start to happen - the kind that affects Sylvester directly - he begins to worry. His reasoning dwindles and his growing fear points to his neighbor.

Where is that stray dog going?

After enough time, Sylvester starts to see and hear what the people of the area have been muttering about: Unexplainable blue light, corn crops moving on their own...the slaughtered cattle entirely too close to home.

And that stray dog that keeps getting fatter and fatter...

At the peak of summer, and with the walls closing in, Sylvester experiences something that will take him to the brink and haunt you forever.

Bathed in loss, terror and human spirit, Do I Bother You at Night? will be a story you won't forget and one that will give you a few restless evenings of your own.

Love thy neighbor.

Meet the Author

Troy Aaron Ratliff was born and raised in Hamilton, Ohio and self educated in writing, art, and voice impersonations. When he's not reading, writing, sketching, or cooking up his next monstrosity, you can generally find him defending the galaxy from the forces of evil, feeding hippopotamuses, dining with foreign dignitaries and Zen masters, waking up to his supermodel wife, altering the space-time inter-dimensional warp or, more than likely, stuck in traffic somewhere in Southern California on his magic carpet.
