~One Night~ Written By Chris Wade (jcrct7) Based On True Events ~It was about one thirty-four AM when I heard the voice.~ Whispering nothing to me. My eyes shot open and frantically rolled in all directions. A sudden twist of fear wriggled through my stomach and I tasted vomit slightly. I quickly shut my eyes and pulled the cold sheets over my head, attempting to tuck my head under the pillow at the same time. Suddenly, I felt unprotected. The sheets. The pillow. The room. The house. All of them felt as though they disappeared and I felt alone, with no one to call out to. to even think about. Tears started to stream down my cheeks and soon a good portion of the pillow was damp. I could barely breathe under that pillow. The used, stale air circled around in the little breathing space I had. The voice grew louder and meaner. I thought I was about to die. I don't know what the voice is, but I knew I was about to die. Then, the whispers stopped. My eyes blinked open of faint surprize and I listened harder to see if the voice only quietened. It didn't. It was truly gone. I had to do something. I had to. What if the voice was gone, but it was still there, watching, waiting for something? Right when I made the horrible desision to lift up the sheets and make a panoramic look of my room, I heard a thump-thumping sound off to my right. I froze. The sound was soming from my desk. Right beside me. I took all my courage and swallowed all my fear, and lifted the sheets off my head. My eyes widened at what I saw. A wave of confusion came over me. There was nobody, nothing inside my room. I looked over to my desk, from where the new and unusual sound was coming. My computer screen wobbled from side to side, making the awful thump-thump, thump-thumping, ringing through my ears. Syncornizing with the beats of my heart. At first, this sight was strange and yet another confusing piece to the horrific puzzle, but them, as if the voice telepathically told me, I knew instantly. Someone, something hit it, almost to the point of it knocking over. Fear crept through me. Through every crevice and corner of my body and I shivered greatly. Bumps came over my body (Although I would not know of it until later). I was suddenly cold, almost frozen. My bed heater was set to ninety degrees, yet I was freezing. Then it hit me, like a bomb that was three feet away. The voice was in my prescence, or I was in it's. All of a sudden, I saw something out of the corner of my eye. My TV has a bear stuffed animal on the top and together, it makes a shadow against my closet doors. I looked at the shadow in horror and a cry came from the depths of my soul. I never made a big deal out of the shadow until tonight. It looked like a body's shadow. The bear on the TV set made the shadow's head. And, the shadow's head moved. I gasped just as my closet door was pushed in. The shadow pushed my closet door. The reaction caused the door to crack open. A crevice of darkness had appeared from the door. Then, I blinked. I shouldn't have. But I did. In less than a second, a new terror had begun. My lips trembled and I was in shock. I uttered words, but I do not know what I said now that I recall this night. There was a hand, a hand gripping the side of my closet door. It was deathly still, like a spider awaiting it's dinner. I screamed and shut my eyes so tightly, it hurt. The blackness of my eyelids became conforting to me. My body suddenly relaxed. I layed back down and covered myself with the warm bed sheets. I opened my eyes. I opened them to complete silence. I was confused again. I squinted at the computer screen. Still as a rock. I moved my eyes toward the closet. It was closed. No hand. I heard nothing. Nothing but the wizzing of my fan, set on the lowest power. It was as if nothing in my room happened. My eyes grew heavy and I gave a long yawn. The time was one thirty-five AM. One minute of total terror. One minute... ~This is just one night. One night, one minute of horror. This is just one night. There were many before. There are many to come.~ ~End~ Tweet
