A really short one today. Was shooting for a drabble, but it’s a little over 100 words(125 to be exact).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They were never going to believe me. Not this time. Not again.
Every time they came in to search, they told me it was just my imagination. And to just go to sleep already.
I didn’t imagine that scuffling sound under my bed. Or the hairy arm that came out to pat at my mattress. I stared at it now, and huddled in the corner of my bed, the blanket pulled up to my chin. If I screamed again, would they come before the monster got me?
A second furry arm joined the first and soon a head popped up from under the bed. The scream nearly popped out, until I saw the monster grinning at me. “You ready to have an adventure?” it asked.
