So I was making a new cat toy out of paper and a straw, and the power went out. But the dim blue light from all the windows in my house could make most of the rooms in the house visible. I couldn't go to my room, because it was way too dark. Here's what would happen if I slept in total darkness: it would make my nightmares so much worse that, when I first wake up, I would be screaming and crying a lot.
my parents tried to scare me and help me calm down at the same time.
that's when I saw something hanging on the front door. I looked closer. It was a stuffed monkey. A very scary stuffed monkey. It had the most disgusting fur I had ever seen. Here's how gross it looked: it's fur was covered in honey or something.
The monkey was green and yellow, it had big black eyes, it's fur was overgrown. I checked my watch. It was 3:00 in the morning.
That's when I screamed. I was having a really bad panic attack, scream-crying, "I DON'T WANT TO DIE! I DON'T WANT TO DIE!"
I read a 3-story book. The first one was called Scary stories to tell in the dark. The second one was called More scary stories to tell in the dark. The third one was called Scary stories 3: more tales to chill your bones.
