My friend jumped so high his head almost hit the ceiling.
“What was that!?” He demanded of me. My parents were away, it was stormy outside, and a deep guttural voice from above us had just asked us a question.
Before I could answer he runs to my door and locks it. He’s not a moment too soon, because there is a creaking sound from overhead as the door to the attic opens. It’s decided to come down.
“Did you hear that!?” He frantically demands, looking around desperately for something to block the door.
“It’s m…” I start to say, but he cuts me off. There are footfalls outside my door, and my friend loses it.
“It’s coming!” He shouts, diving behind my bed and covering his head. He’s shaking now, but he can’t help but look at the door as a forceful knocking sound rattles the room.
A hear a squeak from my friend as I get out of bed and move toward the door.
“Don’t touch that!” He orders as I reach for the door handle. I ignore him and open the door to be greeted by what appears to be an eight foot tall jet black yeti with fangs.
“Dude the wi-fi is out.” He tells me.
“Sorry man, I’ll go power cycle the router and see if that helps. You good up there? Any leaks?” I ask.
“Naw man, it’s all good. I was just in the middle of something you know?” He says.
“What are you doing!” My friend exclaims, flabbergasted at the interaction that is taking place.
“I tried to tell you it’s no big deal.” I inform my friend. “♪Cause I’m friends with the monster that sleeps over my head.♫”
