It’s 3AM and you’ve been up all night on a horror binge. You’ve watched your favorite horrors movies, read your favorite scary stories, and even attempted the old “Bloody Mary” trick in your mirror. You stretch and yawn, deciding now is about the time to hit the hay, so you move into your bedroom and lay down to sleep.

After awhile, however, you realize that you can’t get the images of some of the fictional creatures you saw on your TV out of your head. “Meh… I’m going to hate myself for this tomorrow,” You say aloud as you flick on your bedroom lamp, knowing that having a nightlight used to help get rid of your nightmares as a little kid. Within minutes you’re close to sleep, snuggled up comfortably under the blankets with your eyes closed and more pleasant thoughts on your mind.

…That is, until you detect something moving in front of the light, casting a shadow over you. You blink, beginning to turn towards the lamp before a rotting hand grabs hold of your shoulder. “Thanks for turning on the light; I wouldn’t have been able to find you in that darkness.”

      A lamp is an object which projects light and the thing that grabbed him was Alfred, on behalf of Wayne Enterprises.

    I find it hard to believe that that hand wouldn’t have found him (oh, wait, it’s me apparently) eventually in the dark.

    If the thing’s hand is rotting? Wouldn’t I have been able to smell it before it even got near me?

    Either way… I would’ve shat brix.

    Oh god. This plays right off of the fear I had when growing up. Everyone’s thought this way before too, where once you see something happen on the t.v. then it will happen to you in real life. Like right after watching scream, I was scared half to death that some knife wielding psycho would break into my house and kill me. Great job.

    no buildup, needed more suspense
    plus could have made the mottled lurker much creepier(dont ask why I just named it after an enemy in a game)

      Coming from someone who cannot even spell ‘well’ correctly, you really have no room to comment on poor writing skills.

    Had potential in the beginning of the story,because everyone has been there. Ending wasn’t so great.
