I woke up gasping for breath. The clock showed 4 numbers, 00:00. Pretty unusual. I was sweating, and my clothes were clammy. It was quiet. Abnormally quiet, like the calm before the storm. I saw a hooded figure lurking around in the dark corner of the room. How long had it been there? How long had it been watching me. Fear. One word I could use to describe the emotion I felt when it started inching closer towards me. “Loosen up” the figure said. It’s voice, too deep, too guttural to be natural. I tried to run, to do something to get away, but my body was frozen. In the blink of an eye, it had crawled up to the edge of my bed. “You cannot escape me” it said. The figure smiled, and darkness crashed over me like a wave.
