On  a dark cloudy evening a man walked by my window.
12 I was lying on my bed wondering if he’d go away. But it seemed like he was talking to another man. Short he was because I couldn’t see him. yes, I recall this moment as the terrifying night, but not just that it was the night that changed my life, I closed my eyes hoping for that moment of silence.
Now I was not an easy kid I’d shout at my mother whenever I felt like it. And fought with my brother whenever he said something. So I was scared but my mouth was not and I shouted ‘Go away I’m trying to sleep here you teabag’  the man stopped talking and slowly approached the window. I jumped right back in bed and went under my sheets and my eyes gazed at the window. The man kept getting bigger and my room kept getting darker. he told his short friend that I was a problem. I closed my eye and ducked under the sheets and it was finally quiet I did not hear a thing. Relieved I felt like waking up when mom makes pancakes, or any baked goods for that matter. Ow how I love those cakes, but enough of that these were things I was never going to taste again, because when I revealed myself to my room it was not there. All there was, was a my bed and a couple of strange birds flying in the sky and wat seemed like the mucus that dripped out of my nose last night was covered all over the ground. Yes this was indeed strange I can’t remember what happened. But I knew for sure I was never going to hide again. suddenly my bed disappeared, I remember hearing my mother saying my name right before it vanished .
she would usually do this to wake me up so I can take a shower and go to school. So I yelled mommy, mommy ‘but I did not get a response,
rude, indeed. so I started walking on the mucus ground.
Far away I saw what looked like a few eye balls, have I gone permanently mad. I thought. So I decided to walk towards the eye balls. There was an approaching house to my left very small and it looked like a creepy shed straight out of a Tim Burton film ow how I loved his films. I walked inside and there were two mosquitos sitting inside. Yes I know I’m completely out my mind right now. So I thought hey,
heck might as well just talk to them my mom always told me to say words like mister and sir, I was a loud mouth but a decent kid.
But I’m not going to call some mosquitos sir.
So as I approached them I said Well hello bloodsuckers how are you today on this beautiful green land. ‘Terrible I know’,
The thing looked at me his face looked like a sack of dried plums, he answered with what did you call me??.
I did not know what to say so I asked him where am I.
I was hoping he would let it go. But now the other one stood up and demanded me to say it again.

And I said: listen plum you heard what I said otherwise you would not be asking me to say it again. Right? And where in god’s name are your wings sir..
This thing sat down and started laughing with his partner and said: this sack of blood thinks we are mosquitos. The other one laughed and went on and about some strange room, but they seemed to like it and one stood up and said: follow me bloodshot. I still don’t know which one is which at this point but I went outside and jumped on his back, he asked me to, I’m not that rude. And he started jumping like a mad cow at least I think mad cows jump around, we were getting closer to the eye balls they looked like a huge tree coming from the ground and holding the eye balls.
I finally realized the world I was walking on was a creature, the plum stopped and said: this is my home welcome to Dille. Yes I finally understood I was talking to a flea that was living on some slimy creature. I felt like I had to say something I mean the man last night shouted the name Dille and now I’m walking on it and talking to a flea.. so I started walking to the eyes and the plum stopped me and told me that I was not allowed to get too close otherwise it could see me. The flea held on to my shirt with his mouth and jumped away.
He toke me to this dark hole and dropped me in it, and told me that I was not allowed to ruin his home and he closed the hole.
For the first time that day, I felt scared, cold and alone, I always had a fear of the night but my fear would increase when I see a light because the reflecting shadow would always turn into a creepy monster, so there I stood trapped I was never going to get out,
So I did what I thought was a great idea I shouted for help, and I yelled and I yelled but my voice reflected back and forth like I was trapped inside my bathroom. Singing always cheered me up in a bathroom, so I started singing as loud as I can, ''Deep down in Louisiana close to Neeeeew Ooorleans, Way back up in the woods among the eveaaaargreens''
Cheers to anyone who knows this song. Blast from the past… but back to the dark hole, as I was getting to the next line a man’s voice crashed right through the song. Shushing me suddenly a baby song started to play like the one my sister had and far away I saw a light flickering remember I said I felt scared right now that moment I was terrified, my legs were shaking like a dog wagging its tail, my heart was bumping I actually heard my hearts bumping reflecting inside the hole, I was not alone in here. As if my current situation could not get any worse I thought what.. what did I do. Footsteps were getting closer and closer the light was turning smaller it made no sense.
Hello boy he said,…
