One Scary Night…

One Scary Night…


I remember when I was nine years old, and it was the night before Halloween. It was a weird night because all I did was wake up and fall back to sleep again and again and again.

It all began when I was lieing on my bed at 11:30 P.M., suffocating my teddy bear, and biting on the ends of my pigtails. As I slowly dozed off, I suddenly woke up in my dream. WOW!!! Everywhere I looked I saw candy, gum and pop. I thought I was in candy world!!! I ran and dived, tumbled and played in nothing but junk food. As I greedily ate everything I could, my eyes came into a blur. As I chewed my gum, I noticed it wasn't gum... I'm chewing bits of guts and slime I thought. I'm not drooling saliva... I'm drooling slime and blood down my mouth. I'm screaming my little pigtails off, and all of a sudden, I'm awake, shaking. I'm in shock! I could feel my chin and neck feeling sticky and wet. I got up to go to the bathroom to look at myself. With a sigh of relief, it was only my saliva smeared all over my cheeks and mouth.

I went back to my bed, and snuggled near my teddybear. But all of a sudden, I start rolling all over my bed. I fall onto the floor, and I'm still rolling, rolling all over the floor. I'm going up the wall. What's dragging me, I ask myself over and over? Then I'm on the ceiling, rolling with my teddybear. From the ceiling, a hand with long nails pulled on my pigtails. I'm hanging from the ceiling, and I slowly fall down to my bed, as the paws of a cat scratch my face and pull my hair. But suddenly I wake up with my kitty by my side. I look at the clock and it's 3:29 A.M. I lay there petting my cat, until I slowly dozed off into a deep sleep.

When I wake up again I'm surrounded by trees. I look at my feet and I have no shoes on, just my nightgown. It's foggy out and there's scattered leaves all over the ground. I begin to walk, but the cold ground next to my feet forces me to run. I was running so fast that I tripped on a willow branch sticking out. Then I asked myself ,"What am I running from?" I slowly turned my head, with my heart beating very fast and I squinted and saw something that made my face go pale. There, behind a log, stood a figure that looked like someone wearing pants but with no upper part of the body. The figure had no face or arms, just feet and legs. I got so scared, I couldn't move. I couldn't say anything. The figure came closer and closer until it was only 10 feet from me. I felt sick to my stomach and I couldn't breath. Finally the figure came so close it started stepping on me. I screamed and screamed and screamed and when I woke up, dam, it was just my stupid kitty again!
