I lay in the dark trying to sleep, when I heard a hissing. I looked to my left and thought I could faintly see two pale points of light, like two eyes watching me. I was completely frozen with fear.
“Hello.” whispered a voice.
“Who’s there?” I asked fearfully.
“Just go to sleep.” the voice whispered again, and the soft hissing began once more and got closer.
I lay there unable to move, as my eyelids got heavier and also now voiceless, knowing I might never wake up again, and there was nothing I could do. Everything went black.
This was written with the prompt whispering provided by the Carrot Ranch October 7 Flash Fiction Challenge.
