There are different kinda of bad nights. Some are easy to over look, some harder, some, are impossible to over look. Then there are the ones that you almost forget before they are completely over because you don’t want to know or remember what was said. Its not about you, and deep down you don’t really think anything will happen anyway.
This of course is the latter of those nights. Just a bad dream you are hoping you will wake up from. Like some onipitant being you watch the monster chasing others. But you are afraid to move because you are afraid the monster will turn on you.
And you, you’ve faced that monster before. You’ve felt the claws. You know you can’t beat the monster, not like this. So you watch terrified for them and for yourself
