Harry's eyes opened. The room was coated in a greasy, dim, Green light from various LED's. He went to move... And couldn't. Paralysed, he tried to make a sound but nothing came out.

Something moved on the bed.

He tried moving again as the thing moved up the bed. Screaming internally he struggled frantically as the thing moved onto his chest. He tried to look down as far as he could. A pair of glowing eyes slowly slid into view. Tears warped the view, and he could feel the thing settling on his chest. It rose up grinning at him...

    Thanks Neville. This is why the cats are banned from the bedroom at night πŸ˜‰

    Love it, Jeff. When we had cats they were always banned from the bedroom at night. A rule that lasted all of a fortnight....
    Great scary tale though. :)

    Thanks Drew. There's enough night terrors floating around without our two moggies landing on the bed at three in the morning expecting to be cuddled ;)
