Dan tucked Billy into bed after he finished reading him his favorite bedtime story.
“Yes, my boy. What is it?” Dan asked sitting down on the bed.
“Daddy will you check for monsters?”
“You know monsters aren’t real.” Dan smiled at his son.
“I keep hearing something under my bed.”
Knowing it would ease his mind to look, he crouched down to look for the monster. That’s when he saw Billy shaking under the bed. Frozen in confusion, Dan stared into his son’s scared eyes.
“Daddy, there is someone on my bed.” Billy whispered from under the bed.
