“Daddy, I had a bad dream.” You blink your eyes and pull up on your elbows. Your clock glows red in the darkness—it’s 3:23.

“Do you want to climb into bed and tell me about it?”

“No, Daddy.”

The oddness of the situation wakes you up more fully. You can barely make out your daughter’s pale form in the darkness of your room.

“Why not sweetie?”

“Because in my dream, when I told you about the dream, the thing wearing Mommy’s skin sat up.” For a moment, you feel paralyzed; you can’t take your eyes off of your daughter. The covers behind you begin to shift.

    This story is *really* creepy, but only until you realize that there’s nothing all that odd about anything that happened. Sure, it would be weird for a little kid to have such graphic dreams, but the movement is probably just his eldritch abomination getting up to swallow him alive. No biggie.

    If I had a child and that happened I’d activate fight or flight mode and promptly flee the hell out of there. The worst that could happen if I was wrong is my child’s subconscious is seriously bizarre and my spouse just fortuitously moved. The worst if she was right is….. something disturbing. But I agree with “Person”‘s comment; brix were shat. Love the cliffhanger ending.

    Would have been a million times creepier had it said “the MAN wearing mommy’s skin”. That would make it realistic and absolutely horrifying.

    And then comes the twist… I demand more story!

    But no seriously, this was different; extremely short, but different. At first I was like “okay, bad dreams… big deal” and then I saw “in my dream the thing sat up in mommy’s skin” and at the moment the covers shifted and I was like… “Dun dun dunnnnnnnnnn!”

    -10/10 for the twist
