Kairi didn’t feel like lifting her eyelids to see what the sound was. She continued to lay there until she heard the scratching noise once again. She opened her eyes wandering what could possibly come next after everything she had saw today. She figured it was just one of those men trying to scare her, so she casually rolled over on her other side to face the edge of the bed. It was pitch black, so she saw nothing in front of her. She knew there was no point in looking under the bed either, so she decided to close her eyes once again.
As soon as she closed her eyes, she felt hot air blowing on her face. The air was strong enough to move her bangs upwards off of her face. When she inhaled, she could smell a very bad odor. She knew the smell had to be bad breath, but she didn’t want to open her eyes and find out if it was or not. When hot saliva dropped onto her cheek, she opened her eyes. Again, there was nothing but darkness, and the hot air blowing on her face was gone. She wiped the saliva from her cheek with her right hand, making a disgusted face.
There was no way she could sleep. She knew something or someone was there in the room with her. She didn’t know how she would defend herself, but she definitely wasn’t going to just lay there. She was going to at least be up and aware of her current surroundings. She looked around the room frequently for hours. Nothing had showed up the whole time, and she had begun to grow very sleepy.
Her eyes slowly closed, and she fell on her back. Her head hit the pillow, and she was finally asleep. As she was sleeping, five large, six inch claws emerged from under the bed, ripping into the mattress. As more claws sank their way through the mattress, Kairi awoke. When she opened her eyes, she saw that the room was engulfed in bright red flames. The walls, ceiling, and the floor were in flames. The only thing that wasn’t in flames was the bed.
Both sets of claws ripped through the mattress and with force, split it in two. In turn, Kairi’s small body was slung high into the air. With the few seconds she had in the air, she saw a monstrous black bear standing on all fours looking up at her. The bear looked like something straight out of a horror movie. Its eyes were a burning red, its face deformed and ferocious, and its mouth was long and wide with at least forty razor sharp teeth. Once her little glance was over, Kairi felt herself plunging down towards the scorching room. No matter how much she tried to keep herself up, gravity was against her.
