The man knows that it's just his imagination. This is not the first time he's seen this creature. It used to haunt him in his dreams when he was a little boy. It comes back to him every once in awhile. But, today he decides to overcome his fear that has stuck with him all his life. The creature approaches him, but instead of reacting in a horrified way, he lets the creature know that he is no longer frightened, by walking past him, not ackowledging his presence. A little hesistant at first, but confident.
