Under the Covers

Karen woke up covered in sweat.
Night terrors or frustration from nightmares.
She was asleep and she was in the middle of the same nightmare she has had for nearly three months.
A man wondering around a house she was only slightly familiar with. He chases her and she winds up in a room trying to escape in the closet when she finds terrorizing things coming at her. She tries to run again and the floor boards buckle

It was two stories with a small arched attic. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms which Karen appreciated for guests to use her downstairs bathroom.
Karen was settled in bed and and took a drink of water she had on her bed side table. She stared into the darkness again and suddenly felt cold. Karen sat up quickly and stared at the door. It was not too far from her bed but far enough away that she had to sit up to look at the door from the bed.
Karen decided that it was okay and she got comfortable again and pulled her covers up and tucked the bottom of her covers under her feet. She was slightly superstitious and could not be too careful as to what lurks in the night.
Karen felt herself slowly drifting to sleep. Her eyelids were heavy
