Why You SHOULDN'T Stay up 'Til 3AM

Avatar Author: Never Explain (LoA) My name is Never Explain, and I was an original Ficleteer before the creation of this wonderful site. I usually post any current series that I'm in, but seeing as I'm just getting started again, I don't have much! N... Read Bio

I plug in my headphones, turn the sound up, and press play.

I feels like I can feel the bass beats in my head. I can’t hear a thing through these headphones, not even the clicking of the keys under my fingers.

My feet feel the vibrations on the wood floor.

I get a cold chill that slices through the humid sweat of the summer night. I shiver as an icy layer of sweat starts materializing as my hairline.

I turn around and no one else is here. The music is still blaring in my ears. The room I’m in is the only room in the house with lights on.

I turn back around and feel another vibration. My heart skips a beat.

I swing around again, expecting to see some kind of monster. A freaky looking doll or a ventriloquist dummy with a butcher knife. A guy in a hockey mask with a machete.

No one’s there. I try and imagine someone there while I’m looking behind me and it doesn’t work.

I turn back around and someone taps my shoulder.

I let out a yell and whip around.

It’s my dad with a glass of milk in his hand.

    And that, my friends, is the reason I do not watch scary movies; my overactive mind likes to take the “awful” parts and make them worse. It’s not condusive to a a decent night’s sleep.

    That aside, great piece. ^^
