Fright Night

Guest post by Olaf

I wake up and reach my arm across. I’m startled, scared unsure. My heart beats fast and I’m frightened.  Panicked. I’m sweating. I look around frantically but I can’t see, hear or smell her.

Oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck! There’s a slither of light as my eyes adjust. Bathroom door ajar, unusual taste in the atmosphere.

I start! There’s a noise downstairs that I don’t recognize. Beads of sweat rush off my brow.

I sit bolt upright. Reach to my side, feel her next to me. I Snuggle to her skin.

The only thing that left was my insecurity.
