One strange night, at exactly twelve o clock, a dark shadow appeared in my room. "Big deal!" you might say. But what if I told you that the shadow had no owner? I woke to find it rummaging through my closet. It had what appeared to be a long, wispy tale and horns the size of a butchers' knife. It looked to be the size of an adult gorilla. It sat hunched over a pile of expensive looking objects, inspecting them. Then the creature whipped around to find be curled up in my bed. The two of us starred at each other for a while, wondering what to do. Then it grabbed one of my trophies I had won at an art contest last year and jumped out of my window, never to be seen again. I still wonder if the creature will ever return to visit me. And if it does, I'll be asking for my trophy back.
