I guess sleeping with stuffed animals has made the rounds in every childs life. I have two grown girls who still sleep with their pooples, the ones they've had since they were three and two. No accounting for taste. Great job.

This is a great story, Carol. I like how you weaved in the "cuddly monsters". Is this for suneagle's contest? If so, somehow it is not identifying it as a contest entry.

    Jnetgame,

    My time is so limited of late to enjoy what I love - writing, but I greatly appreciate knowing that even my short little bits of whimsy are appreciated. Thank you so much for your kindness.

When I was young, monsters ruled my world, day and night. Fear in the young is natural. Adults ridiculing it is bad. Today, I live with the biggest monster of all: REALITY.
Very well written.

All little boys need a soft cuddly protector. I know because I raised boys and each one has their own protector. Your micro-fiction was fun to read. Good luck with the contest.

Carol,
you micro-fiction about s boy afraid of monsters is very well written. Cool art work you used. Too bad you didn't enter the contest. Excellent narrative and great dialogue. I could see the boy crying at his mother hovering over his bed. I loved your description of Fred:

Seconds later, his daddy followed. He carried a scruffy, one-eyed creature in his hands.

Delightful read, my friend. . . Melissa.

Cute story. How sweet of the little boy to say he trusted who his dad trusted. It says a lot about their father/son relationship.

Good post. Thanks. I enjoyed the read.

Regards, anabelle

You have done a wonderful job of capturing the essence of childhood. I can remember being afraid of the dark and I can remember it with my daughter. You adressed it in a wonderfully intelligent manor. With just a very short story you have uncovered a universal theme. good work

Hello Carol a one eyed stuffed toy named Fred, how precious and show so much love .
Love this part-

Satisfied, Tommy snuggled closer to Fred and whispered, "Any friend of dad's is a friend of mine."
