This is kind of my spin off on the Pixar Theory. I hope you guys like it :)
“Good night Mary,” My mother whispered as she tucked me in bed. “Sweet dreams honey.”
I looked at my closet and pointed.
“Mary, I told you there are no monsters in your closet.” She said as she opened my white closet door with pink flowers on it. I hid my head under my covers and whimpered. I didn’t dare look up from under the blankets. My mom came over and sat on my bed and gently pulled the covers off from over my head. I looked at the closet prepared to see that snake like creature emerge from the shadows. It didn’t though. All that was in my closet were my clothes and a few boxes of my toys.
I was afraid to sleep lately. Every night right after my parents finally fell asleep a scary chameleon-snake like creature would slither into my room and scare me. I know my parents think I have an over active imagination, maybe I do, but this monster seemed so real to me. I could have touched it, it seemed so incredibly tangible.
My parents have told me that there are no such things as monsters, but I don’t believe them. That’s the only word that could possibly describe what that thing was. What else would come out of a closet late at night to scare a little girl every night?
“I’m going to leave the door open a crack, ok sweetheart? I’ll even leave the hallway light on.” My mom said as she left the door open ajar and turned the hallway lights on. It made me feel a little better but not by much. That monster was still going to come out of my closet tonight.
I decided that I was going to hide so that way the monster couldn’t find me to scare me. Quietly I slipped out of my bed and searched my room to find a good hiding spot. Finally I hid under my stuffed animals on the floor in the corner of my room. My body was mostly concealed. The only part of me visible was the back of my pink nightshirt.I curled up into a ball and hugged my favorite strawberry scented berry-pink teddy bear. The scent was soothing and comforting. My eyes soon felt heavy and I drifted off to dreamland.
Creak. Whoosh. Creak. My eyes flew open. The monster was here! I didn’t dare move from my spot. I hugged my teddy bear even tighter.
“Hello? Is anyone scaring in here?” Whispered the monster. That wasn’t my monsters voice. This monster sounded kind and friendly. I decided to investigate further.
I quietly moved from my hiding place and finally got a good look at the monster. He was big and furry; like a kitty. He had blue fur with purple spots. He wasn’t very scary. All he was was a very big kitty. I like kitties; maybe this one would like to play with me?
I walked up behind him and grabbed his tail. I picked it up and then dropped it a few times. Thud, Thud, Thud. Kitty looked around, confused for a moment. I picked his tail up again and dropped it. Thud. Kitty finally looked behind him. He gasped and looked like he saw a ghost.
“Kitty!” I shouted. Kitty screamed and tried to run away. I chased after him.
“Roar, roar, roar, roar!” I shouted as I went after him.
Kitty is very funny. He walked into my mobile and some of my other toys. I crawled up on his back. He didn’t seem to notice.
Kitty ran out of the room with my toys that he couldn’t seem to get off of himself. He ran through my closet door and I prepared myself to collide with the wall. We kept running though. I opened my eyes and looked around, still gripping tightly to Kitty’s back. This wasn’t my closet. It was a big room. No, it was a humongous room. It looked like a warehouse. The room was dark and empty and I was scared. I didn’t know my closet was so big.
Kitty kept running. He was in a panicked craze, trying to get rid of the toys that were stuck to his back. I was still holding on to him, and he still didn’t seem to notice me. We ran through several hallways and rooms. This place was huge! I wanted to explore this new world; it seemed like a fun place to venture into. I decided I would stay with Kitty and explore this place with him. He made me feel safe in this strange place.
