Please listen to your nightmares and dreams
They are the only things that keep you human
And the only things that'll keep you and your loved ones alive...

I don’t even know how I even start this experience off.  So okay, here goes...

I’m Caroline Richards

I’m 29

I’m a therapist

I have a husband and two children who are called Leala and Allanah.

So that’s about enough, and I’m not here to tell you about my life, well, actually I do have to tell you about my life to tell you my story.


My husband goes to work every morning. Extremely early that I can’t even open my eyes in the morning to say goodbye. He would kiss me on the cheek and leave a cheesy note on the table like,


Roses are red

Violets are blue

If you get a purple flower

That means I love you


And he leaves a beautiful purple flower on the bed. I usually wake up in the morning, to smell it and I smile when I remember when we first met, which I won’t explain right now.


So this is when my life-changing experience comes in...


One night, I have a dream of a morning when my husband goes to work. I’m still asleep but there’s someone moving in the bed that isn’t me. I suspect that it’s my husband, staying in, because he’s extremely tired and he’ll wake up and go to work about two hours later.

I lay my tired hand on him and whisper sexily into his ear, ‘I thought you was gone.’

The thing that is supposed to be my husband wriggles out of the bed stands up and looks at me with no eyes. I literally mean eye sockets that do not have any eyes in them. It’s skin all scaly and rough, tinted green. Its teeth barely visible.  I scream and it rapidly slithers underneath my bed and hides there. I’m afraid to get off my bed, afraid that if I actually get off, it’ll grab my legs and drag me under the bed with it.


Now back to reality, it appears that my dream was true. Someone has been watching my husband and I through our window. On my husband’s way to work, they killed him and while I was sleeping, they’d wriggle in beside me, sleep then wake up early in the morning and leave me. Since then, that unknown person’s presence has been sleeping with me my lonely night, making me believe that I’ve been sleeping with a man I loved but have now lost.


Please listen to your dreams. Once the chance comes, there’s no turning back. Cherish the people you love.

This story has been inspired by a true life story. So please keep this story in mind and shut you're windows when you're alone. So now...please sleep tight and don't let the scary things bite.
