The Best Friend
Sometimes your best friend may be your worst enemy.
Bedtime is the most peaceful time for almost every human. It is a time when you can lie down, switch off your busy mind and rest knowing that when you wake up, things may just be better. You close your eyes to the ugliness of the world, and you revel in the silence that slumber brings as you tumble into serenity.
But do you know that while you lie there in your serene sleep, I am watching you. Crouching in the corner of your dark room watching your eyelids flutter in dreamscape, watching as you turn to your most comfortable position, a slight smile at the corner of your crimson lips.
If you knew, what will you do? Run? Where will you run to? I can walk a thousand steps to your measly one. I can yank your arms from your shoulders faster than you can realize they are gone. I can twist your neck so far back that you will see the world in a different way. Yes, what can you do if you know I am here?
Such innocence lie before me. Sins don't matter when you sleep. In your slumber, you are like an innocent little baby. Juicy steak to me. I think I can eat you. I can nibble your fingers and toes. I am sure the rest of you will taste just as good.
I watch you turn one more time, your back towards me. I am tempted to creep into bed with you. Touch you where I know you like the most. I have seen you with the other. I have seen you in states of ecstasy and passion reaching your climax, screaming wildly.
I am not sure if you will feel the same way if I touch you there. My claws may dig too deep. Even my gentlest touch may severe an important vein. We don’t want that now, do we?
You moan in your sleep. Are you dreaming, love? Dreaming of someone or dreaming of something? I am a something. Do you want me to join you? Not a question you want an answer to, I am sure.
You stir from your slumber.
Your eyes flutter open and I think the first thing you see is me. I move towards you. Strangely you smile at me. I am so close I can rip your heart out and have it for supper.
“Ralphie, what are you doing in here?” She chuckles and reaches out to stroke the beautiful strawberry blond golden retriever sitting at the foot of her bed.
Nothing, just thinking of dinner.
