Midnight snack.

Post by tehmedus » Tue Jun 03, 2014 4:02 am

“Daddy?”
I woke up to the sound of my daughter crying. I stumbled into her room. Everything was a blur without my glasses, and the only illumination was from her Sleeping Beauty night light. She stood next to her bed crying. I picked her up to comfort her and put my hand on the back of her head. No hair, only bare skin. Confused, I stopped rocking her. My eyes now acclimated to the low light. I looked beyond the thing I was holding to her bed, where she slept soundly, just as it sunk its teeth into my neck.

I am infatuated with the idea of the creepy thing or scary thing being right there but someone not knowing it. A neck-biting thing is horrific, but the character picked it up. And comforted it! That to me is scary. Thanks for the drabble.
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.
