The eyes of the demon have returned!
I cannot believe it. I thought they were finally eradicated from my life, and they had been for many years. Then, suddenly, early this morning, the red eyes blazed in the darkness, taunting me. I awoke to a frightful, penetrating scream. I looked around my bedroom, searching for him. To my relief, I realized it was only a nightmare. I was the source of that horrible scream. It was not the demon that somehow, beyond logic, resurrected to finally claim my soul. I find this disconcerting. It has been years since I experienced this nightmare. But Christmas is approaching. The red eyes never appeared in recent years, until now.
I am acting like a typical, neurotic old man. Only a dream. It will never occur again.
