17. Shadow Monsters

” I am eight years old but I’m still afraid of the dark.

I know I am a big girl but that is just how it is.

So Mummy leaves my bedside lamp on all night.

But if I get out of bed, my shadow follows me.

Sometimes this scares me and I call out to Mummy.

She flips the wall switches.

My room is flooded with light

And the shadow monsters go away.”
