While waking up one night, he hears a scratching noise in the closet.  Is it merely a mouse or something else even worse?  Does he find out in the end that what he thinks is reality, is just a lie?  Or has everything he needs to know always been there in plain sight?  Read The Thing In The Night to answer all the questions you have been wanting to ask.

The Thing In The Night a short story

  • “Maybe if I just roll over the other way, I won’t hear it.” I think to myself as I begin to wish whatever is creating the infernal noise would just disappear.  

    This is when I decide that it is just not worth getting up for and finding out what the mystery noise is, so I turn over slowly onto my other side and then try to go back to sleep.  As I do, I picture myself laying on my back, looking up at the clouds and counting them.  1, 2, 3.
