    We made the same mistake about letting our eight year old watch the Leprachaun movies. She's okay now, but 27 years old....

    it’s way up towards my face. Uh, the rule with apostrophes is that if you take the apostrophe, you substitute with is. So, it's becomes it is. So, in this sentence, you don't use an apostrophe. Just the s. Its.

    hopefully you have a camera. If not, get a snipping tool, download one. You can even snip off of a Word document, or paint.

      How can we answer that? We can't see your work.

      Have you learned how to create a hub by watching the video in the Learning Center?

    here's the new one-awoke to a slight pressure on my right leg. It was strange how calmly I reacted, considering I had no idea what was going on, and had snapped awake as if I had not even been sleeping in the first place. There was a moving weight on my right leg, something crawling onto me, with blind hands groping my body as it made it’s way up towards my face.

    I heard the voice of my 4 year old son, Will, as my senses focused on what was going on. “Daddy, daddy, daddy, wake up daddy.”

    “What is it buddy?”

    “I scared daddy dere’s a ghost daddy.”

    Over the last week, every night that I laid Will down for bed, he would repeat the same three things as I was leaving the room. A plea for me to leave the light on, followed by a plea to leave the door open. As well as a following explanation that differed between being scared of “booby traps”, “ghosts” or...oddly enough, an “artic fox”. I assured him each night that there was nothing to be afraid of, instructing him to say “Go away ghost/fox/booby trap, or I’ll BEAT YOU UP!”

    I figured the best way to tackle the idea of irrational fears in a 4 year old was to instill the belief in him that whatever boogeyman he might be facing, it is beatable. My hope was that if he had the mentality that his fears were capable of being beaten up, they would cease to be fears. It had been a full 5 days of this now, though, and I was getting frustrated.

    “There’s no ghost, buddy, I already beat all the ghosts up.”

    “Dis ghost say ‘You daddy wrong’ and den ghost flies up over dere” Will pointed up at the corner of my room. “I scared daddy, can I sleep wif you?”

    “Yeah buddy, just be still and don’t squirm too much, alright?” I turned my phone over and opened the lock screen to check the time, the brief glare of the screen slightly blinded me as “2:04am” stared back at me. Will slid under the blankets next to me and cuddled close. He squirmed for a solid 30 minutes before finally falling asleep. I eventually fell back asleep shortly after that, leaving thoughts of ghosts for tomorrow morning.

    I didn’t consider Will’s irrational bedtime fears as being anything of note, considering how common it supposedly is with kids his age. The past week really wasn’t even bad, with last night being the first time he had woken up scared in a long time. Come to think of it, this might be the first time ever. Sure, like every child everywhere, he had woken up when he was really sick, or really hungry, or for whatever reason infants wake up every couple of hours a night until their sleep conditioning kicks in. I don’t remember him ever waking up scared before.

    I got on with my day as normally as possible, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I kept asking myself questions I didn’t have any answers to. That night, I laid Will down to sleep and read him a book called “Where the Snowbunnies Play” which featured an an arctic fox as the main antagonist, chasing the innocent Snowshoe Hares away from their home. The Hares get back at the fox by making a “booby trap” that catches the fox and saves the bunnies’ hides.

    The book put me to ease now that I knew what was upsetting Will. After the book, I kissed him on the forehead and told him goodnight, but as I was leaving, the same whining demands came forth from my little boy. “Daddy, don’t turn out the light! Dere’s a ghost right ovah dere, it come from da closet and fly ovah dere! Don’t close the door, daddy.”

    “Will,” I walked back over to his bed and sat down at the end of it, placing a hand on his little arm as I said “there are no ghosts here to bother you, there are no arctic foxes, and definitely no booby traps. If you get scared in the night, you can always come get me, ok buddy?”

    Will still looked scared, but he nodded silently. I kissed him once more on the forehead and left his room, carefully closing the door but leaving it open just a crack to let a little light from the hallway in.

    My eyes seemed to have closed just an instant before they snapped open again. I felt no slight pressure on my leg this time, but an overwhelming sense of wrong, the tight balled up feeling in the chest that seems to strike when something inexplicable causes a fearful anxiety that paralyzes all rational thought. I felt so unsettled, I didn’t move for what seemed like an eternity. The bedroom was silent. More than silent...I couldn’t hear ANYTHING. Not the A/C or the slight hum of the ceiling fan, not the normal muffled sound of occasional traffic outside, nothing. I realized that I could not even hear my own shallow breaths into my pillow, and that finally convinced me to move.

    I turned over my phone, and once again the screen blinded me as I unlocked it.

    “2:04am”

    Deja vu hit me like a wave, and I fully expected Will to be crawling on my legs right then and there. I looked up from my phone and at the room.

    Nothing...the door was still closed.

    No...the door wasn’t closed when I went to sleep, I was sure of it.

    I jumped up from bed and swung the door open, raced down the hall to Will’s room and then slowed...the hall light was out, I noticed as I turned around from Will’s door. My gaze returned to his bedroom door, and fell on the small wooden knob. The door was shut completely. Adrenaline raced through my veins, and I instinctively reached for the handle and slammed the door open.

    Will was not in bed.

    There was no bed.

    There was nothing in the room at all.

    All furnishings, all his toys, all his clothes, everything was gone.

    I ran into the room, turning about in the center, looking for anything, any sign that my boy was still here.

    The light from the closed closet drew my attention, peeking through the cracks at the sides and bottom.

    “Will are you in there?! Will!?!?”

    Silence.

    I ran to the closet, swung it open and saw that it was completely bare, just like Will’s room. The bare bulb was humming quietly as I stepped into the closet to inspect further.

    After searching up and down the walls of the inside of the closet, I noticed what looked like small markings in the bottom right corner. I bent down and got on all fours inside the closet to make out what it was.

    BUFFY WAS HERE

    Indented into the wall by something sharp, written like a small child, Will!?!?”Silence. I ran to the closet, swung it open and saw that it was completely bare, just like Will’s room. The bare bulb was humming quietly as I stepped into the closet to inspect further. After searching up and down the walls of the inside of the closet, I noticed what looked like small markings in the bottom right corner. I bent down and got on all fours inside the closet to make out what it was. BUFFY WAS HERE Indented into the wall by something sharp, written like a small child, with the Es in “here” written backwards. As soon as I had thought to myself “Who’s Buffy?”, I was answered, as I felt a slight pressure on my right leg once again, though this time...it was wrong, malevolent, its hands were sharp and as it crawled up my leg, I realized I could not move, I could not even turn my head to see what was behind me.

    BUFFY WAS HERE. BUFFY WAS HERE. BUFFY WAS HERE.

    The voice didn’t make noise, it didn’t have any volume or tone at all. It felt like it was being forced inside me, coming from me, emanating from the very walls, the floor, the ceiling, everything.

    My body was still paralyzed, my eyes still transfixed on the wall with the marking “BUFFY WAS HERE” as new shapes began to form on the wall. Small, child sized blood streaked handprints, and fingernail markings of countless, overlapping scratches. New words slowly scratched themselves into existence above the previous “BUFFY WAS HERE.” My horror reached its end, my vision and senses blacked out completely, as I watched, cursed with paralysis. I watched while it was etched with wicked, twisted fingers into the closet wall:

    WILL WAS HERE

    By writing informative how-to articles that are useful to readers. Or articles that people will read for interest on a subject.

  15. Jesse Drzal profile image93

    Fiction and short stories are welcome here as well. It just most likely won't make you much money.

    Because that is just how the system works here. You make money off the advertising on your articles and that is the articles they pay for. Searches in Google and social media views things of that nature.

            He's talking about the message he's received from the Fiverr bod who wrote the content. Who looks as if he has two rates - one for commercial use/use on a commercial site (like HubPages) and one for personal use.

    Of course, at the top of the story it says it was written by someone else, so behold the wonder while it lasts folks. LOLOLOLOL

      LOL.

      I can hardly believe this is STILL going on..this thread is one for the record books!  Have you ever encountered someone so incorrigible? His relentless plagiarism finally paid off..

      It has brightened my days as well. Sad to think it might be over now that The Hub is published. Whatever else the OP may be, he is without a doubt a great builder of community.

        I am wondering if it's a mental health issue. There's no understanding or perception of what he's done.

        The hub will be unpublished soon, I expect.

        You do know he didn't write it?

      Great picture, she's pretty. Is she single?

      What site?

      1. DavidSimmons1776 profile image60
        DavidSimmons1776posted 2 years agoin reply to this

        the hub I published

        1. theraggededge profile image98
          theraggededgeposted 2 years agoin reply to this

          Oh, that hub you didn't write?

          Do what you like with it. You should post the whole story on FaceBook and Google+. And don't forget your blog.

            This could be a prank Bev..starting to get that vibe.

              Yes, there are three possibilities for me so far:

              Troll - I'm not convinced of that.
              Joker - He's not clever enough.
              Mental health issues - I still feel it's along those lines, but I hope it isn't.

              Then, of course, it might be just as it seems. Someone who is so desperate to earn money here that they would pay someone else pennies to do the work... or simply steal it off the interwebs.

              Did anyone mention to David that fiction doesn't do so well on HubPages? Especially when it's in the wrong category.

              It's all highly entertaining.

              By the way, David, why did you post the photo of the girl? It was kind of random, don't you think?

                  Not sure, it's just a feeling.

                  And the fact you can't write your own articles.
