What happens when a kid is certain that there are real monsters under his bed and in the attic, but his parents are at their wit's end with all of this nonsense?

For one child, night time reveals that there really ARE monsters under his bed and in the attic. Unfortunately, the only way to get into or out of the attic is through an access panel located in the kid's bedroom.

All the child has for protection is his Teddy Bear and a wooden sword. One night Father loses his patience, and removes the sword following an incident with the household cat. His mother is more sensitive, but does not believe any of it either.

The kid is now unarmed and completely terrified. He decides to make a deal with the monsters in order to stop the nightly terrors. At this point, Teddy Bear takes charge. This is where it gets really good.

This short story is a must read for anyone who was ever afraid of monsters in the dark, but had a favorite bear to protect him or her at night. Highly recommended! I only wish it was longer.

    Great short story, 23 pgs, with a few much needed laughs.

    It will remind you of all the nights you spent under your blanket!
