"And so the little lamb and his mama live happily ever after," the girl finished reading her story aloud to the creature beside her. Hopeful orbs of blue glistened as she cocked her head up at him. "Didya like that, Mister Boogey?"
No response from underneath the black coat. She frowned, teetering off her seat ever so slowly before her tiny feet reached the ground.
"Mister Boogey?" she asked again, gripping the corners of the dark trench coat. When nothing responded, she slowly peeled it open, revealing the coat rack on which he had been perched. Where had he gone?
The little girl shrunk back, upset that her friend had left without a word. She curled up in her chair, clutching the book tightly in case he came back to hear the rest of the tale. Suddenly, a soft wind blew through the empty room, but before she could turn to see what had caused it, she was swept up in darkness.
"Gotcha," the creature chuckled, cradling her close to him.
The child squeal with laughter most contagious, pleased of his return.
"I thought you left!" She gave a pout, looking up at his shadowy face.
"Why, my dear, I’d never leave you. I am your guardian after all, am I not?" The monster gave her a toothy smile. “And I will always be your Boogeyman.”
Look what people did to my post haha…and the notes though. <3
Liz Phair - “Strange Loop”
The fire you like so much in me
Is the mark of someone adamantly free…
I can’t be trusted, they’re saying
I can’t be true
But I only wanted more than I knew.
Bon Iver - “Can’t Make You Love Me”
I didn’t realize this was a cover until today. Beautiful and heartbreaking.
This is a really great article about how the “social script of stranger rape” is largely inaccurate.
The majority of rapes are committed by a small group of men. These men also disproportionately commit violent crimes against women and children. Or to quote the article:
If we could eliminate the men who rape again and again and again, a quarter of the violence against women and children would disappear.
Overall, an informative and powerful article.
