The time I thought I accidentally killed the tooth fairy.

I Thought I Killed the Tooth Fairy

by sarahwainschel

When I was 7 I lost a tooth.

I put it under my pillow and went to bed waiting for the tooth fairy to come and leave me money. I was very nervous as I waited upon her arrival, spending most of the night tossing and turning.

I finally drifted off into a deep sleep.

I spent most of the night dreaming of the tooth fairy breaking into my house and watching me while I slept.

I woke up early the next morning, but didn't open my eyes.

Something was wrong. I shifted my body from side to side, realizing there was a large object under my back that had magically appeared while I was sleeping.

It felt like a tiny body and suddenly I realized...

I had rolled over the tooth fairy in my sleep and killed her. The severity of my actions were not lost on my 7 year old self. I had just killed the women responsible for ALL the world's teeth.

I spent the next hour lying in my bed.

With my eyes tightly shut, I tried to summon up the courage to sit up and assess the damage. I knew I had a shoebox in my closet and figured I could put her in it and bury her in my backyard.

I just hoped my mom wouldn't find out.

I knew she'd be very mad at me. She did not raise a murderer.

Finally, after an hour of plotting, I opened my eyes.

I sat up in my bed, my heart beating fast.

That's when I realized...I had fallen asleep on my arm.

It had been my numb arm the entire time. THE ENTIRE TIME.

The worst part is, my parents forgot to leave me money.

While I DID have a sense of relief knowing that I was not a serial killer, I did NOT have the two dollars in quarters I needed to buy dessert at school the next day like I had planned.

THE END.
