A very short horror story

The demon spoke: “I have seen all your outer and your inner life. I have counted your every mental twitch. Reading books in the winter sun. The heartache you felt when you realized he would not love you. Irritation at the sound of chewing. That teacher you were sure was a creep, though you never quite confirmed it. The moment you slammed into the infinite solidity of death. Watching your dog learn to swim. 3 am debates over the value of your life. It was all so boring.”
