Allow me to introduce myself.

I am fearless.

I am brave.

I am courageous.

Nothing scares me, you can throw anything and everything at me and I can brush it off with a scoff or a laugh whilst holding my head up high.

Your scary films do nothing for me.

Jump scare videos? Ha! Don’t make me laugh!

Your attempts to scare me are in vain; I will put my hands on my hips, push out my torso and give a chesty chuckle as you all whimper like injured dogs at the mere thought of a ghost.

If anything a ghost would run away from me in fear.

No monster would be coming out of my closet when I’m still in the room. No creature will scrape its fingers along my window in a pathetic attempt to send shivers down my spine.

Common fears? What are they?

Snakes? Please, I use them as skipping ropes. Spiders? Why my Halloween decorations of course! And clowns? Who would be scared of a man in make-up?

So once again, allow me to introduce myself.

I am fearless.

I am lying here in bed, my face turned towards the ceiling and my eyes unblinking.

I am brave.

Enshrouded by darkness with nothing but small spots of light surrounding me from various devices, none of which are bright enough to penetrate the choking void. There is no light to reveal the one breathing heavily by my bedside.

I am courageous.

As a cold, clammy and unfamiliar touch slowly slides up my arm, starting from the tips of my fingers and up to my elbow. Sharp fingernails scratch at my skin as its flesh presses against mine.

I am frozen as the hand moves back down to my wrist and long fingers slowly wrap around it in a tight grip as if it’s the beings only lifeline

I am sure that this thing wants to take me, pull me away from my home and eat me.

I am wishing for sleep, to ignore this imagined nightmare and just dream it away.

I am yearning for this night to be over before my life is.

I am shaking like a leaf and breaking into a sweat.

I am scared.
