One night, while sleeping with my now ex-wife, I felt the end of the bed begin to lean down. As if one of the dogs were attempting to climb up onto the bed. What I thought was a dog became quickly known as something much more. The shear weight that I could feel in the bed must have been closer to my weight or more. I attempted to open my eyes but was only able to look at the ceiling. The room was dimly lit but I knew my wife had been reading in bed. So, I didn’t think much of it. As I became more curious as to what was at the end of the bed, I tried to lift my head but to no avail. I was stuck! Paralyzed! As I realized this, I also noticed that I was having a hard time breathing as well! I became frantic and began to try and move my body! ANY part of my body! I couldn’t! It felt as if I had something tying me to the bed! I felt the weight at the end of the bed become more prevalent and closer to both of us. I became more frightened but unable to move! I tried to scream to wake my wife but the lack of breathe in my lungs kept me from making a sound! I was horrified at would could happen knowing I couldn’t stop it!
After endlessly trying to move, I was finally able to raise my head to reveal a much more horrifying reality than I had imagined! At the end of the bed seemed to be human but it couldn’t be. For what I saw no human could survive. There were no eyeballs. The empty black sockets peered through my eyes deep into my soul. The skin that remained, appeared to be melting off of the carcass as it crawled closer and closer to us. With puss and blood excreting from the loose skin dripping onto the bed forming multiple puddles of bodily fluid. As it began to cross over my feet I fought harder than I had ever fought in my life to move just one limb from my paralysis! Within a blink of an eye, I was able to jump up from my position. Move to my wife’s side of the bed dragging her off with me as I truly woke up to realize… It was just a dream.
I stood next my wife, in the darkness and out of breath. Trying to wrap my head around what had just happened. I was exhausted from fighting… Nothing. I laid back down without being able to explain to my wife what had just happened and slept silently for the remainder of the night.
