A Terrifying Night
by Aditya Agrawal
I was lying on the bed when the door creaked open.
In the middle of the night, who could be I thought.
As it opened wider, a blanket of horror engulfed me.
Saw a monster, in all its furious anger, rush towards me.
As I now started to react, it swiftly pinned me down.
Its fangs and claws raised, waiting to strike with a frown.
I woke up with a scream, realizing it was just a dream.
“What happened honey?” heard my mom’s voice ask me.
“Nothing, mom!” the words slipped out of my shaky lips.
And as I just said that, a fresh cold terror gripped me.
I was not in the home, but inside my college dormitory
And if my terrors and horrors were not too enough,
I heard the dormitory door creak slowly open.
