"I'm heading to bed," I said. "Goodnight!" "Goodnight," they replied. "We'll be there in just a minute."
The boogeyman, puh-lease, as that song goes "I ain't afraid of no ghost." I'm going to be 8 soon, I'm a big boy now. I don't have time for such kiddy scares as creepy crawlies or the slenderman. I took my night light out a long time ago, no need for it, since I will be a big brother soon.
As of now it is only the three of us: me, my mommy, and my daddy.
This coming up weekend my daddy had plans to take my mommy somewhere before my little brother or little sister would arrived. Aunty Helen was going to baby sit for the weekend but she came down with the flu and wasn't going to be able to come over.
My parents were sad that they were not going to be able to leave. I told them that I was a big boy now, and that big boy can take care of themselves. That didn't work. So I used the best trick in the book, annoying them about letting me stay home alone. like other mommy and daddy's they gave up and I won. This weekend I have the whole house to my self.
So Saturday came, I am excited. They left this morning, leaving me money so that I could order some take out *to see if I was grown-up* for supper. like any responsible parent, they called me like every other minute to check up on me.
That night something happened that normally wouldn't. I watched some horror movies, normally my parents wouldn't let me watch them. I was sitting on our sofa couch, watching another movie, I had gotten into it, the black Merman thing was carrying the woman into his lagoon when it happened...
Hearing a large noise, I started screaming out loud, I thought my heart would jump out of my chest. looking out our extraordinary large windows I saw that it was raining and the sound of thunder made me yelp. maybe I'm not as brave as I thought I was.
Going through more movies I looked over at the time "4:44" am it said. I let out a yawn, as it was time to finally go to bed. I made sure all the doors and windows were locked, I turned out the light. The only source of light in the living room was from a street lamp from the circle. with another yawn I began to walk out of the room.
"I'm heading to bed," I said. "Good night."
"Good night," they replied. "We'll be there in just a minute."
