Bump In The Night

A bit of microfiction for this week's 3WW. A bit of a cheat as well. Used pacified instead of pacify. Hope it doesn't get me evicted!



Awaken with dread. A dream. It's substance quickly slips my grasp. Relax. Visualize. Fears pacified.

Maniacal laughter fills my room.

  10. This happens to me, but without the laughter at the end. If I heard that, I'd be out the door so fast I wouldn't even have time to put on my running shoes!
