It was bright in our room, so i just thought she turned the lights on because she had a bad dream, you see, I was still trying to get my bearings together, so I ask her what was wrong?, she pointed het finger towards the bedroom door , afraid to come out from under the covers whispering look.
As I turned towards the door, startled by what I was seeing, I ran my hand across my eyes ad if to wipe the sleep away, there in our bedroom stood this tall man with bright stars around him...
