Happy Halloween! I was under the weather for the past couple of days, I decided to do my last Heart-Throbbing Thursday story today in celebration of Halloween. This story is based on some true events but my imagination definitely took the lead on this one: Deja Vu
After my dog bombarded me with her slobber on my face, I hesitantly started to get up and look around. Surprisingly, everything looked normal again. My backyard wasn’t empty, I heard people and the streets were occupied with cars. As I went inside through the basement, I held my breath to prepare me of what might be waiting for me on the other side of the door. As I creeped in, I was relieved when I saw our things there. I ran upstairs in hopes that my family were present and everything was in place. I opened the door and saw my mom cleaning the bathroom. Excited, I gave my mom a huge hug. Confused as to why I would give her such a warm hug while she was cleaning the bathroom, she asked if everything was okay. Elated, that everything appeared to be normal, I told her I loved her and just needed that person to person contact. I went to explore the rest of the house just to make sure none of my family members weren’t missing. After wandering through the rest of the house all my family members were safe at home. I spent the rest of the day enjoying my family’s company. I didn’t experience any nightmares for a few nights so I was anticipating getting some good sleep. I cozied my way into my bed, and pleasantly drifted off. Unexpectedly, I had a nightmare of someone chasing me into a dark abyss. Frightened, I ran further into the darkness in hopes that I will soon find some sort of light. I started to become fatigued and slowly ran out of steam. I fainted and collapsed onto the black cold ground. I woke up abruptly in my bed again. While it was still dark, I had a sudden urge to use the bathroom. Carefully, I got out of bed and made my way out the door. I saw the living room light was on and wondered who was in there so late at night. I turned the corner and saw my dad with his back turned, fiddling with something. I tapped him on his back to greet him and when he turned around my dad had horns on the crown of his head, warts all over his face, and black sharp squinty eyes. He looked absolutely grotesque. He turned to me and he looked evil and started yelling at me. I ran back to my room and he staggered after me. I shut and locked the door, I felt semi-secure since my sister was in there, I jumped in the bed and scurried under the covers, hoping that this was another dream. This same occurrence happened to me three more times. I was tired and frustrated, so I decided to stay under the covers until I saw sunlight. Patiently waiting for morning to come, I dozed off. When I woke up the sun was shining in my room. I was so relieved but exhausted at the same time. When I got up from the bed I noticed right under me were horns. I ran out of my room and I found my dad sleeping on the couch with two big bruises on the crown of his head. As I went passed him, he quietly said wasn’t that fun, we should do it again sometime…..
Happy Halloween be safe!
