My stomach is jumping through my throat, my heart pumping harder than its ever done before, as if each beat brings it a mile away from wherever we are right now. If this is fear, then I don’t know if I’ve ever been truly scared before in my life. I wish I had someone here with me now, someone to hold my hand and tell me it’s alright.
Fear isn’t even a word right now. It’s my state of mind.
I’m afraid that if I close my eyes, I’ll open them to find a monster on the other side.
