Dark

The room was dark, no sound was heard. The child was wide awake now. It heard something crawling in its room.
'Who is it?" whimpered the child.
The thing got closer, inch by inch. The child let out its hand. The child thought it heard a purr. The child could hear things crashing, as the thing was bouncing around. It even jumped on the child's bed, but decided not to stay. The child was getting very anxious. It needed to find some light.
But the thing kept getting closer and closer.... The child thought it heard another purr.
"Could it be?" muttered the child out loud.
"Meow?"
The child grabbed for the light. The thing sprang into action!
"Kitty!" Yelled the child.
The child relieved, turned off the lamp and went back to it's bed. The cat jumped on the child's bed, purring loudly, next to the child's legs. The cat padded it's paws, still purring loudly, the cat plopped down, and closed it's eyes. The child closed it's eyes. 
And they both slept happily ever after!

  2. This is a fun read, Joseph! As another kitty lover, I could so relate to this. Tiggy loves to play in our room at night, and then "thunk" and she's up on the bed, or walking over my head! I love it when they snuggle in and purr, I wish people purred with they were content! Great story, Joseph, this guy was braver than me, putting his hand out to find out what was waiting for him. I would have been under the covers!!

  3. Joseph...this was fun..we have all been through the sound in the dark that frightens us and then found out it was just a cat or something just as innocent. I enjoyed this
