Abolitionist

I woke up. I had no idea where I was. I could have sworn I went to sleep in my own bed. Last Night I had some odd dreams about slavery and Harriet Tubman, but we were learning about her yesterday in history. It felt like I had slept on concrete. When I looked down, I discovered how close that had been to being true. I had been sleeping on frozen ground. I discovered something else from looking down, though.

Why I’m afraid of the dark

I hate the dark so much; my friends always dare me to stay in the dark for a long time. They always try to scare me because they know how the dark makes me feel. When I was younger, my older brothers would pull the worst pranks on me; that’s how I became scared of the dark. Here is the story:

The only sound is coming from the distant road, only getting fainter. There are lights above the path, but they are dim.
