The Nightmare Journal

All Rights Reserved ©


Ari was sixteen when she disappeared, a sixteen-year-old with a troubled past. Things had always gone bump in the night for sweet Ari, but now it was exploding. Something dark is growing, feeding on the fear, feeding on the nightmares. But no one believes Ari, no one believes the monster is under her bed. A monster only she seems to be able to see, a creature with only one intention, with only one mission. But first it feeds, and it will, and it does… Until its finally satisfied.
