Tags: horror,

Things that go creak in the night.

I awoke with a start but didn't dare move. Was it a dream? Had I heard a door creaking open?

After a moment, I opened my eyes but remained still.

In the half-light of the moon, filtering through thin curtains, I saw it and froze! It was hideous!

I couldn't see it clearly. All I could make out was the wild hair and pale face with wide, staring eyes. I screamed with terror!

Suddenly, the room was bathed in light.

“What's wrong?” His voice had just a hint of concern.

“Nothing,” I replied as I closed the mirrored wardrobe door.
