Every child fears under their bed. If they don’t, they fear the closet, or maybe that little crack in the almost closed door.

Scientists know that children are more perceptive, they see things adults don’t. They aren’t yet tethered into only accepting what society wants them to accept. They see what is truly there.

They see the monsters.

If you were to borrow a child’s eyes and see through them for a night, you would go insane. To be able to see what you only dimly remember, burrowing into your covers while wearing those train pajamas, hoping to a God you can barely comprehend that “it” doesn’t see you back…would drive an adult crazy. Because Adults forget the rules.

1) Cover yourself. If you can’t see it, it can’t see you. Even if it makes it harder to breathe.

2) Don’t make a noise. Every whimper can lead to destruction.

3) Don’t move. It attracts their attention.

4) Only light can make them go away. Bright light. Flashlights make it worse.

Teens are caught in the middle. They still feel what’s there, but they cannot see… and they forget the rules….

Why do you think there are so many insomniacs typing at their computers, subconsciously praying the light from their monitor will be enough to keep them away?

It’s not. Now look behind you with a child’s eyes and try not to scream.

        I still fear the closet. I know I shouldn’t, but I do anyways. I always sleep with a knife behind my pillow, and I sleep with my face towards the wall.

    Hello.

    Extraordinary.

    I wonder how many will attempt this in earnest.

    While there are many who would mock and jeer these wonderful tales, there are so few willing to place themselves in such exquisite circumstances.

    Curious, that.

    This one.

    This one is beautiful.

    OH GOD.
    I tried to imagine a child’s viewpoint.
    And there were dark shapes that hid when I looked at them, and something in the doorway.
    I just tried to “see”, and there they were.

      Hippie, you cant remember them because your subconscious has blocked them out of your memory for sanity reasons.

    Woah, amazing. o___o
    My girlfriend actually wrote some stuff that sounded creepily like this [but it was from a character's point of view] and she was explaining it to me for like… hours.

    Creepy shit, man. I’m only 15, I still see those images in the dark and hide under my covers and don’t move a muscle. X3

  • Foolish

    I will be paranoid as hell once I get into bed and attempt to fall asleep.

    Whether I like it or not, my subconscious will definitely be searching for something.

    However, I do remember the demon from my childhood, swooping to breathe down my neck as I pulled the quilt over my head

    I’ll be sure to re-read this when it’s dark.

      Nope. I don’t get what’s scary about things that clearly mean no harm to anyone. It fails to explain why adults are never harmed by the monsters when it is adults who are unable to see or protect themselves from them. Cue the angry 10-year-olds downrating my comment and telling me what a moron I am — that’s the demographic that finds this shit so scary.

    With a pair of not-quite-childs eyes I see shapes lurking beyond the dark. I know they are there, I sense them… But yet I am powerless.

    Shame. Perhaps you join them if they get you?

    Heh, you don’t need to bring out your inner child to behave like that at night. :P Reading through creepypasta will do it just fine too…though, since it requires a suspension of reality to enjoy properly, maybe they’re both the same thing.

    I did it. I spent two hours trying to and I managed to run off with them. So what do I do with them? Replace them with my own? Or just having them is good enough to see the monsters? I wish I had more instructions on what to do :1
