Ze only chapter1 - I was having a pleasant dream when what sounded like hammering woke me up. After that, I could barely hear the muffled sound of dirt covering the coffin over my own screams
2 - I woke up to hear knocking on glass. At first, I thought it was the window until I heard it come from the mirror again
3 - I can't move, breath, speak or hear and it's so dark all the time. If I knew it would be this lonely, I would have been cremated instead.
4 - There was a picture in my phone of me sleeping. I live alone.
5 - My wife woke me up last night to tell me there was an intruder in our house. She was murdered by an intruder 2 years ago
6 - I never go to sleep. But I keep waking up.
7 - The last thing I saw was my alarm clock flashing 12:07 before she pushed her long rotting nails through my chest, her other hand muffling my screams. I sat bolt upright, relieved it was only a dream, but as I saw my alarm clock read 12:06 I heard my closet door creak open.
8 - She went upstairs to check on her sleeping toddler. The window was open and the bed was empty.
9 - "I can't sleep," she whispered, crawling into bed with me. I woke up cold, clutching the dress she was buried in.
10 - I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, "Daddy, check for monsters under my bed." I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, "Daddy, there's somebody on my bed."
11 - After working a hard day, I cam home to see my girlfriend cradling our child. I didn't know which was more frightening, seeing my dead girlfriend and stillborn child, or knowing that someone broke into my apartment to place them there
13 - I always thought my cat had a staring problem - she always seemed fixated on my face. Until one day, when I realized she was always looking just behind me.
14 - My daughter won't stop crying and screaming in the middle of the night. I visit her grave and ask her to stop, but it doesn't help.
15 - She asked why I was breathing so heavily. I wasn't
16 - I awoke to the sound of the baby monitor crackling with a voice comforting my firstborn child. As I adjusted to my new position, my arm brushed against my wife, sleeping next to me.
17 - There's nothing like the laughter of a baby. Unless it's 1 A.M and you're home alone.
18 - A girl heard her mom yell her name from downstairs, so she got up and started to head down. As she got to the stairs, her mom pulled her into her room and said "I heard that, too."
19 - Growing up with cats and dogs, I got used to the sounds of scratching at my door while I slept. Now that I live alone, it is much more unsettling.
20 - In all of the time that I've lived alone in this house, I swear to god I have closed more doors than I've opened.
