Something Was in My Room
Yesterday I went to bed at half past eleven but woke up an hour later. Someone was laughing. I couldn't move my body, but I could see things in my room. A black shape was standing next to my bed. Its eyes were red. I shouted, but no sound came out. I was so scared. Then, I could move again. I sat up and looked around, but I couldn't ﬁnd that thing. "Is it still here?" I looked at the clock, and it was ten to one. "Maybe I was dreaming," I thought. I didn't go back to sleep again that night.
