[fiction] a fragment of "Let Me In, Let Me In"

The first deathless_pose prompt came out Sunday night. It was "Wet footprints on the floor". I tried it against my four meta-subjects (robots, aliens, space travel, and urban mythology) and it stuck against "urban mythology" with a first pass first line of "My roommate is a pig."

I cranked the entire story out in about 2.5 hours (1.5 at Peets and 1 at home). The total was 1866 words, longer than expected. The beginning is behind the cut. The full story is posted at deathless_pose behind a member lock, and I might post it here as well. We'll see...
