After the scary movie

I wouldn’t have picked the scary movie. But my friends did, and it was a sleepover. Plus, when we turned off the lights and were cozy in our sleeping bags, it was kind of fun—and really funny when my friend’s cat ran through the room during a suspenseful part. We all laughed so hard about how the cat had made us jump!

But the next night I was back home, in my own room, without my friends. And when it was time to turn out the lights and go to bed, I couldn’t stop picturing scary images from that movie. I knew it had all been fake, but I was still afraid.
