Off to Bed

As the final zombie fell, it was decided sleep was best.  Wife and kids on a weekend trip, the dad and husband was currently neither, just a man going to bed.

From the corner of his eye he saw it.  A beast in the shadows.  Eyes catching the light of a street lamp, the beast looked hungry.

His pulse raced.  Flight or fight he had one choice.

He charged the monster with all his might.

The eyes belonged to a stuffed animal placed atop the living room’s now broken lamp.  After the fight, he swore off late night horror movies.
