The noise came from beneath her bed. Fearing a monster, Alice grabs her teddy bear, willing it to keep her safe.

“Mommy! ” Alice cries, but her mother doesn’t respond. She squeezes the teddy bear tighter.

Then Alice hears footsteps coming to her door. The noises from under the bed suddenly grow quiet as her mother’s drunk boyfriend enters the room.

As he approaches Alice, two large hairy hands with ragged claws, reach out, grabbing him by the ankles. Screaming, the boyfriend’s dragged beneath the bed.

Soon, from under Alice’s bed, a soft voice whispers, “You’re safe from the monster, now.”
