Some people say there are monsters under the bed. I don't believe that. I've always been safe in my room -- before now, at least. But I know that monsters exist. I *know* it. Horrible, horrible monsters who pretend to be regular people!
But... I can't tell you how I know. You know what, I shouldn't have said anything. He's-- I guess he's not a monster at all. He's not a vampire or a mummy or a zombie. But I'm not scared of those things, not after I met him.
It doesn't matter, anyway. I'm safe here, in my room. For now.
