A red neon light flashed and flickered outside the window, illuminating the darkened room and casting an eerie red glow over everything.
In the red glow, a cockroach could be seen making its way across the soiled and stained pillow on the dishevelled bed.
A fly buzzed in the bathroom.
A moth fluttered at the window, banging its head over and over and over on the dusty glass, forever striving to get to the flickering red light.
On the floor, just beside the bed, on the threadbare brown carpet.
Lay a single finger
