Night

New story idea! Tell me what you think!


Prologue

            Night. It always had some mystical element to it. Either you were afraid of the dark – or you were fascinated by the mysteries it beheld. I was more inclined to be full of wonder in its respect. One never knew what creatures roamed within the darkness, and perhaps no one will ever find out the full extent of how many nighttime monsters roamed our planet.
            Oh, yes, we know of bats and other such animals that only come out when the sun has gone down. But I can assure you we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty more out there, some of which I’ve encountered myself. There are ones that you would think of when you are the age of, say, 5, such as closet monsters or the ones that live under your bed.
            Those are real.
            There are others such as dragon-type creatures, or creatures as tall as trees, and some like trees.  Panther-like, snake-like, demon-like, monster-like…all of them just a small sample, so I am promised. My experience is nothing compared to those I know. And even they swear they know only a fraction of reality.
            Huh, reality. A strange concept in the world I live in. But it’s true and just as real as you or me.
            Human feelings are more accurate than what most think. Some may argue animals like dogs sense more than we do. They can, probably. But I think we underestimate our own ability to sense danger or kindness. When you stand outside while night still reins the sky, think of the feelings you get. You feel watched, or threatened, or sometimes you feel totally at peace.
Your intuitions are usually right.
