Switch - A 100 Word Story
I trudge half-asleep down the dark hallway. My feet are freezing on the hardwood floor.
I open the door mid-yell and survey the room. Nothing under the bed. Window closed. But there's a red glow and hint of sulphur from the closet.
I grab the SuperSoaker from his shelf and open the closet door. A demon bares it's teeth at me. I pull the trigger and cover it in holy water.
"Done," I tell my son. "Now go back to sleep."
"Can I have a drink of water?" he asks.
I raise the squirt gun again.
