I always loved it when Pop-Pop came over and spent the night. Not that I didn't love to be read to by mommy and daddy....but Pop-Pop's stories....well, he never read them out of a book....he just 'told' them....wonder how he remembered all those stories!
Then he would let out a big laugh, kiss me on my forehead, and whisper 'Nitey Nite Little Johnny...I love ya, buddy"....and tuck me in tight!
Tonight's story....hmmmmm.....wonder if that one was true. How could it be? Wonder if a man could really ride around on a horse.... without a head! Where would he breath from? How could he see where he was going? And those sounds he made.....wonder where they came from!
I'm usually always sleepy after Pop-Pop's stories....but tonight....for some reason....I just can't seem to close my eyes!
Uh-oh! What was that! Jeeeez....I wish Pop-Pop hadn't closed the door all the way....mommy and daddy always leave it open just a little bit, so the hall light shined in a little. It's SO dark in here! And those Pokemon men on the wall....they look a little different!
Uh-oh! There it is again! That sound! What could it be?
POP-POP......POP-POP! Would you come back up here a minute?.....oh good....here he comes up the stairs.
The door opened, and Pop-Pop could see Little Johnny's eyes WIDE open.....he could tell by the frantic tone of the little child's voice, that it was urgent.
"What's the matter, little buddy?" Pop-Pop asked in his most comforting tone.
"Please sit here with me awhile....I keep hearing a noise, and......There! Did you hear it? Did you? What -was- that?"
Pop-Pop replied...."Oh, that's.....
