No matter what you hear, no matter how badly you want to, do NOT open your eyes.

Welcome to the final Time Warp Saturday. After this week’s post I will be caught up from joining the WonHundred Word Wednesday group after it had begun. For the past several weeks I have been completing the earlier prompt. Now with my entry for May 28, 2014, that goal is complete.


I covered my eyes and chanted. “Go away. Go away. Go away.”

I wished for Dad’s comfort. His promise in the sunlit kitchen seemed silly. “No matter what you hear, no matter how badly you want to, do NOT open your eyes. It’s not real. They’ll leave and you’ll sleep soundly. Just ignore them.” The words felt hallow.

The dresser thumped. I clutched my blanket more tightly. They weren’t just under the bed anymore.

“Daddy!” I screamed opening my eyes to the familiar nightmares. I could hear his feet running in the hallway. Would he be quicker than my monsters?


If you haven’t already, check out the rest from the present!
