Screeching, I awoke in a cold sweat after my horrific nightmare. I glared at my silent alarm clock. 12 o’clock. The haunting hour. Some people would go back to sleep; others (like me) would explore. My house was full of mystery: unopened boxes,hidden doors, the lot! As I searched through a pile of old comics, I came across a box. A beautiful,black box with a satin ribbon, tied in a bow. Tentatively, i unraveled the smooth bow and hoisted up the lid to reveal…. A MONSTER! I vaulted over my bed and smashed into my cupboard. It looked strangely familiar… It was the monster from my dream!
