When I was a child, I well remember how I went out to play even though it was raining. I had seen how kids my age played outside in the rain in the television commercials. I thought that it would be fun. My mother came and reprimanded me, sending me to bed even though it was only in the afternoon. I apologised many times immediately and tried to convince her that I would not do it again - an excuse that I had given so many times. Being my mother, she did not give in.
I slowly opened my eyes. It was dark and I reached for my alarm clock. I pushed a button and immediately '12:55' lighted up. All of a sudden, I heard a faint noise on the floor. I pulled open the covers and slowly looked at the floor. Suddenly, a huge wet and rough tongue licked my face eagerly.
In shock, I hid myself under the covers and finally slept. Waking up the next morning, I wondered whose tongue that was. Could it have been a monster? Till this day, I am still not sure.
