I am the monster under your bed
I am the thing stuck in your head
Ally a sweet, eleven year old girl…brown hair, blue eyes. A normal, perfectly average girl…except she wasn’t. Everyone was scared of her. She didn’t understand how she was different.

Dark spots danced.

In California, as the sky darkened, I set off onto the beach. There was a chilly breeze in the air but I was hoping not to be gone long. The beach was filled with salty sea water fumes.

None I’ve met, at least.
