I go into the small bright white room, climb onto the bright white table. I do this most of the week. I don’t know why. A familiar man with bright white hair walks in with a bright white coat. He takes his bright white machine to look at me. Mommy and Daddy are concerned. I see a black figure down the hall. It walks away. I come back again the next week, Mommy and Daddy are sad. The white hair man in the white coat talks to Mommy and Daddy. They are crying. I see the black figure, its closer now. I wake up the next day in a gray room with gray sheets. Mommy and Daddy give me cake. It has 4 candles. Wow, 1 more candle from last time. That was a while ago. The black figure is in the doorway. I don’t think Mommy and Daddy see it. But I do. I don’t know what it is. Does it want to play? It must be shy. I go into a dark room. But theres a nightlight, so I’m not scared. The man puts me into the machine again. Its really loud inside. I don’t like it. The black figure is in the room now. I think it likes me. I lay in my bed in the dark room. I think Mommy and Daddy forgot my nightlight. But thats ok, the black figure is standing next to my bed. I think its keeping me safe. I wake up again. Mommy and Daddy are crying a lot. Did I do something wrong? The man puts me into the machine again. I think he lost his nightlight too. Its really dark in here. I went to bed, but Mommy and Daddy didn’t tuck me in. The black figure did. It hugged me. I can’t see anything. I can’t hear…anything…..The black figure took me away. I think it tried to help me. But its so dark…I’m scared…
