I yank the cord of the lamp on my bedside table in a panic. I sigh in relief when I see my hand in the light. There was nothing there. My mind had been playing tricks on me.

I'm coming.

I shriek in alarm, and pull my bed cover up to my chin. I look around wildly, but everything is a blur. I grab my glasses from the bedside table and almost drop them as I try to put them on. 

I start to search my room with my eyes for the source of the voice, but there is nothing there. My heart beat a mile a minute as I tried to convince myself that I had imagined it. 

I am real, human. You dare to think that I am a creation from your inferior mind?

I bit my tongue to muffle my scream. "W-who are you?" I stuttered out, "S-show yourself!" 

I heard it- whatever it was- laughing, its laugh vibrating throughout my room. Your wish is my command, it said mockingly. I then saw a shimmer in front of me, and then a form appeared. I blinked, convinced that it wasn't real. How could it be? 

When the figure was still there, now smirking creepily at me, I desperately pinched my arm. 

My vision suddenly went black, and when it came back, I was lying on my bed, sweat covering my form. It was a dream, I thought, all of it was a dream. 

I turn my head to the side, but this time what I see actually makes me scream at the top of my lungs.
