Our kids felt like sharing their thoughts with the world and we obliged.
My parents were geared up to depart for an event but unfortunately, I couldn’t accompany them as I was under the weather. I was left to my own devices. To kill time, I nestled in a cozy corner of my room with my nose in a book to enlighten my ravenous mind. The book was so intriguing that I did not realize where time flew. It was evening already and the sun called it a day. The moon took its place and cast its silvery light. The sky was overwhelmed with gleaming stars . The wind whistled and the robust, towering trees swayed like a group of dexterous dancers. In the lonesome crepuscule night, fear stroked down my spine as I discerned shadows dancing across the wall. I was aghast as none of them were mine. Out of the blue, the room was encompassed with smoke and it became arduous to see things around me.
As soon as the smoke settled , a lady appeared in front of me. She had pale green skin with tiny eyes and a long pointy nose like Pinnochio’s. A black hat sat on her head. I gawked in bewilderment as I beheld a witch in front of me. She said in an eerie , squeaky voice, “ Well, looks like I found a scrumptious meal for tonight. Now, I will take you home with me, chop you into pieces and throw ypu in a pot of broiling water.” She began cackling stridently. I broke into a cold sweat and my heart was pounding rapidly against my frail chest. I ran towards the door but it slammed on my face. I began bellowing for help and I panicked.
In the nick of time, my mother woke me up. I heaved a sigh of relief as it dawned upon me that it was a nightmare. This nightmare will be etched in my mind for eternity.
