My entry: The monster waited in the walk-in closet as the light of the bedroom seeped under the door frame.
“Jasmine, there are no monsters in the closet!”
There was a soft mumble as the three year old spoke through her sheets that covered her face.
“Would you like me to send Boo in to inspect the closet for you?”
The child nodded.
The monster leapt back, squeezing himself onto a shelf. The door opened and the light on the ceiling illuminated the closet.
“Alright, Boo. Take a look around.”
A sly black cat entered the closet, strolling over to the opposite side. His whiskers twitched as he sniffed the air. The bright, green eyes scanned for the slightest hint.
Boo turned to the back of the closet, slowly making his way to the shelf. The monster slipped past once the cat’s back was turned. Boo’s nose wrinkled, catching the monster’s scent. He wheeled around.
The monster held his breath, staring down at his purple feet stuffed in a pair of dress-up high heels. A flower bonnet covered his face.
The cat turned and ran out the door.
“You see. No monsters. Good-night, Sweetheart.”
The lights went out. The monster edged from his hiding shot to the door. He opened it carefully. His orange eyes darted left to right. There was no one in sight. He grinned, revealing neon green teeth that glowed in the dark.
He moved swiftly towards the bed when he heard a growl. From behind a chest, Boo leapt onto the monster, hissing and clawing. The monster panicked. He threw the cat to the floor and rushed into the closet. He slammed the door shut, his heart racing in fear.
