Excerpt...

“You should not be up here alone,” a voice said.
Heart in my throat, I spun so quickly I nearly fell. Standing a few metres away from me was a figure in baggy jeans and a soft grey jumper. A hood was pulled up to cover his head, casting his face in deep shadow.
“I’m not alone,” I lied, squaring my shoulders and putting one hand on my hip. The other I slipped into my jeans pocket, getting a good grip on my car keys. Natalie had told us after she did a self-defence course that the individual keys, protruding from a clenched fist, could serve as an improvised weapon.
My heart raced so hard I was sure the stranger could hear it.
“You are,” he corrected me. At least, I thought it was a he, judging by the voice.
“My boyfriend has just gone to the bathroom.” Absurd; there were no public bathrooms up here. Before he could call me on it, I added, “It’s none of your business.” He wasn’t tall, which made me feel a little more confident.
“It is not safe for you, lady.”
What? “Who are you?” He hesitated, and I took a step forward. It was foolish, but I’d had enough tonight. “Tell me!”
The stranger pushed his hood back.
His dark eyes, fixed on my face, were the first things I noticed. They were large, like those of a baby animal that hadn’t grown into its skin. In the poor light I couldn’t determine their colour. His nose was small; his chin pointed; his skin pale and covered in delicate wrinkles, especially around the mouth and eyes; and his hair straight, either dark blond or light brown. And his ears….
They protruded from his hair, long and pointed, the tips a good hand span away from his skull.
