I’m on a roll today, reading some short horror stories I’ve been buying but kept postponing… today was the perfect day, it seems!

This is one of those nightmare fuelled stories where you wonder: do I want more or am I glad it’s short enough to scare the bejeezes out of me? (It’s too short, ‘cause I like to be scared)

When Jill and her daughter Emily are alone at the house and Emily comes into her mother’s room, claiming there is something in her room, Jill could never have expected what came after. It’s only when the bump in the night is heard and the darkness grows deeper, along with a growl from underneath the bed, that she realises she’s fighting for their lives!

I loved the shortness and especially how it got me into the story because of it being so concise and the same time scary as hell! Now I probably won’t sleep when I hear that thump or crack or the little sound coming from the other side of the room… but it was worth it! 🤣
