Why am I writing this at 2:15 AM? Because I need to take my mind off it.
I get scared too easily. The Doctor Who episode of the shadows that come alive and kill you? I still have to remind myself that its the future and they are native to another planet its a TV show. More recently, a little tale I decided to read. At night. When no one else is awake. The book is called "Gothic!" and it has short stories by various authors. I read the first one, a story about some dead people and a ghost asking his brother to deliver a letter. Rather simple, not very scary. The second one was about a haunted hay ride at a farm where a serial killer buried the bodies, and the ghost of the killer killing the main character. I can take vampires slaughtering a room of people, I can take the Daleks zapping every human, but what I can't take is anything realistic. As in, something that actually happens. And then, add a ghost that appears when its dark, and I'm afraid to turn my lights off.
