Devil’s Darning Needles

A small damselfly entered through the open window and landed softly on the blanket above Scott’s chest. A second joined the first. A third followed. One after another landed- the combined weight of countless creatures piling high on the backs of one another pinned the boy to his bed.

A series of pinpricks around his lips pulled him from his slumber. He struggled against the pain but it was over as quickly as it had begun. The damselflies retreated one by one until there was no sign they’d ever been there, save for the boy with his mouth stitched shut.
