The neighborhood was quiet and idyllic, everyday kids would go to the schoolbuses at 7 am and come back at 3 pm, to as where they would eat a little snack before doing homeworks, eat dinner then go to bed.
Nothing was out of the ordinary, No-one was very noteworthy, and nothing ever happened.
Until that one fated night, that one dark night where you can hear whispers in your ear, steps behind you and feel a breath on your neck, turn around terrified and find out that there's nothing really there.
On this specific night a little girl named Maya did not quite do what she used to, Maya was a good kid on nine that never bothered her parents, she always kept quiet and good, but this special night Maya screamt out loud asking about monsters under the bed.
-Daaad! Daddy! I could hear it again!
Maya held her blankets over her face, listening to the steps of her father coming down the hallway, for the fifth time this night. The door opened and a tired father stepped in in a Bathrobe and slippers.
-I've checked it a hundred times atleast, there are no monsters under your bed.
The irritation was clear in his voice and Maya hesitated to tell her father what she thought, but decided to do so anyway.
-I'ts not from under the bed papa, it's from the closet...
The dad sighed and took a flashlight that stood on the dresser and lit it before pulling up the door, pointing the light in there.
-See there's nothi-
He got silent and Maya could not see into the closet due to her father blocking the way, a gurgling sound came from the father and he fell backwards.
Two wide, open eyes stared at Maya from the dark and a metally shimmer that was covered in red could be seen from the flashlights light...
A big smile was apparent and soon the mouth spoke
-Go to sleep...
