Terror in the Night

My eyes flew open. My heart pounded wildly. I had been jerked from a sound sleep by a noise in my room…my hotel room…which had a deadbolt and a second latch to prevent entry from the outside. How could I hear something in my room?

In the darkness, I listened for a repeat of the sound. Nothing. But going back to sleep was not an option. I had to know what had awakened me.

Bravely I uncovered my legs, sat up and placed my feet on the floor. So far so good. Gathering all my courage, I shuffled my way the length of the room to the bathroom. In a flash of bravery I flicked on the light, my eyes like lasers seeking the intruder.

Nothing.

Had I been dreaming? Couldn’t remember having one. But that vivid?

Using the light from the bathroom, I retraced my steps to the bed, which was right by the door. There was a strip of light shining under the door. And in that illumination I saw the culprit…the reason for my terror.

The two-page bill for my stay had been shoved under the door. It lay there, in all its innocence, my fearsome intruder.

Too funny. The whole idea is great, but you may want to go into a little more detail next time to work up the story. Still good, though. ;)

LOL! Great story! Although a tad bit short, I have to say. :)

You definitely need to send this into the hotel that you stayed at. It would be a good eye opener for them! Good job.
