I wanted to see just how short of a short story I could write. And this is the nightmare my diabolical mind choked up.

I wet the bed once.

It was awful. They were so angry with me.

It was his fault anyway. So I killed him, the monster under my bed. And they'll never find the body.

They'll never know.

I must say, I love your reaction. Simply priceless. I may have to write more "micro stories"....

Interesting spin on your usual horror story, if you'll take that as kindly as I intend it.

I think it's difficult to find unexplored horizons in horror these days, what with everyone and their respective mothers writing horror stories, but you did manage to break the mold quite well on this one.

I suppose I did break the mold -- now the only question is whether that mold was ever meant to be broken. -insert chuckle- In all honesty, I only labeled this as horror because a dear friend of mine kindly told me that it was disturbing and garish. I would have classified it as humor, but I do freely admit to having a warped sense of humor.
