A prize with a surprise

Harry rushed up the stage in the thunderous applause. He had a feeling he was going to win the prize at last. Being a para-normal reporter, past judges refused to favor him.

Upon returning home, he placed the award on his windowsill where the moonlight can be splattered onto all corners of his room. As his eyelids got heavier, he noticed the bright spots expanding; a sucking sound came from the direction of the window; his body being squeezed and pulled toward the crystal like warm taffy.
