Something to Tide you Over

It made a strange, horrible scraping sound as the teeth would catch, and then slide and then the “thok” as he tried again. Then came the hideous crunching and the grunts of delight.

  1. Hey Hart this is Dawn-Jim s friend- Well I just wanted to tell you that I know that “Thok” sound….
