Was the monster really under my bed or was it just a rumour?
By Nisa Batrisyia
It was already 12 a.m. in the morning and I was not asleep yet. When I was younger, I used to believe that the monster under my bed was real and I still believe it until now. Because of that I grew up with an anxiety disorder which makes me always overthink!
I used to be bullied when I was younger, but not anymore. Ever since I met Kaori and Yukie we have become the most mean and popular girls. I was happy because I was never bullied since meeting them. They were really nice to me and always cared about me.
One day, when I was on my way to meet Ms. Kiyoko, I saw Kaori and Yukie bullying the class nerd. ”Give me your money now!” Said Kaori. “Or else” continued Yukie while smirking. I couldn't help it but joined them. After the school ended, I went home as usual and started my routine. I usually read some books and played video games before I went to sleep.
It was 2 a.m and I still didn't feel the need to sleep. I closed my eyes and when I opened my eyes, my room was in complete darkness! I started panicking and suddenly I heard a voice saying “It's all your fault!” “Bullies!” “Coward!” “Monster!” I was puzzled. Who said that? Why was my room so dark? I screamed as hard as I could “AAAAHHHH STOP!”.
Suddenly my mom came into my room and woke me up “Nisa What's wrong?” my mom asked. “Oh...it's nothing hehe sorry mom” I answered. “Hmm...It's okay, go get ready and go to school or else you will be late! “Okay mom!” I answered relievedly!
I sighed, thank god it was just a dream. I told Kaori and Yukie about my eye-opening dream. Months had passed after the incident. Kaori, Yukie and I stopped bullying and we regretted everything that had happened in the past. After all this time, I believe the monster under my bed turned out to be a “monster” in me!
