Nightly Ritual

Post by dinosaurmonkey »

She checks in the closet. She checks under the bed. She checks behind the curtains and in each drawer of the dresser. After searching through the wardrobe her nightly ritual is complete.

Nine thousand eight hundred forty seven days have passed since she woke up to find "IT" in her bed, crouched over her. She has searched every night since. Decades have passed and she has never found anything to suggest that It has returned or ever will...

Inside the reflected world of the mirror, It sits watching... waiting for her to sleep. She never thinks to check the mirror.

Thanks!!
This is the first one I wrote, and my favorite so far, so I wasn't sure if I wanted to put it up for outside evaluation.
So I'm glad it isn't just parental pride!

Very good for a first one. My first one was utterly horrific but not in a good way.
