Owen forced himself to approach the tub, more cautious than he'd meant to, the hesitation in his approach redoubling his fear, imagination running amok. He'd seen something, the shadow of the door in the hall light, or his own shadow caught in the corner of his eye, and he'd mistaken it for the figure of a man or a woman standing in the shower.
