My daughter had been having strange nightmares lately. She would wake up in the middle of the night, screaming and crying. I had tried to comfort her, but nothing seemed to be working.
Tonight was different though. Instead of her usual nightmares, she was screaming something different. “Daddy, there’s someone under my bed!”
I froze. I didn’t know what to do. I could hear my daughter’s cries, and I wanted to go to her and save her, but I was too scared to move. I was paralyzed with fear.
A few moments later, I heard my daughter scream again, but this time it was different. It was a scream of terror. I knew I had to do something. I forced myself to move and ran to my daughter’s room.
When I opened the door, I saw a dark figure standing in the corner. I could barely make out its face, but I could tell it was smiling. I screamed and the figure vanished.
My daughter was safe, but I still don’t know what that creature was. I can only hope that it never comes back.
