Bruises

by cockapoopoo

I have a step-son. He's three.

A quiet boy, he doesn't like to draw attention.

When I was helping him get ready for bed this evening, I noticed a bruise - a big one - on his back. He told me he got it from the monster under his bed.

He told me he was scared.

Kneeling down to check, I tried to hide my fear.

But I couldn't lie.

I couldn't tell him monsters aren't real.

"Try to get some sleep". I closed the door, softly, whispering goodnight.

And I knew. The monster was real.

Not hiding under his bed. But waiting. In mine.
