My worst nightmare.

Extracts from this document...


The howling wind rattled the windowpanes in the bitter, damp night outside. I twisted and turned under my thin covers. My teeth chattered in the chilly air around me. I couldn't sleep. My sweat dripped down my forehead and my heart was thumping hard at my chest. I was always afraid of the dark and I still am. But this was the first time I had slept alone in a hollow, ominous and shadowy room with no wallpaper. Instead of a carpet, there were filthy floorboards that creaked and moaned. There was also a wardrobe that I had never opened before because we had only moved in this huge house yesterday. I was afraid of this great, dirty old piece of furniture. But never mind that. I turned over and prayed that I would go to sleep. I couldn't drift off. It was no use. I turned on my lamp and stood up. Is there anything here to do, I wandered.

Oh lord it was only a nightmare." " I had a nightmare too," said my sister. " Did you," I replied. I was so relieved. " Yeah," my sister went on, " I dreamt about a witch who bit my neck." I looked at her neck. It had deep cuts. My lips began to tremble. " You still have the cuts," I cried out. " I know," croaked my sister, her eyes flashing.
