They come in pairs to confuse you, confound you, and subtly force (if there is such a thing) you into making the wrong decision. Or if not the outright wrong decision, one that is slightly worse than the best decision. Never do they come in just one. There are always two, and there are frequently more. They attack at night when the sun goes down, when you are asleep and therefore most vulnerable. You might call them incubi, or nightmares, or ghosts or ghouls or specters from your past. In reality, they are none of those things. They draw breath.
