    Buggin' Out

    From Redditor u/BuddyTube:

    I screamed, ran out of my room, and yelled, "Dad, I saw a huge spider, can you come kill it?"

    I hoped the man standing in my closet didn't notice that I saw him, or realize the fact that I was actually home alone.

    Night Watch

    From Redditor u/amnSor:

    As I watch her roll peacefully over in her sleep, I smile and think how lucky I am to know what true love feels like.

    It may look like an accident to others, but I know she leaves that tiny crack in the blinds of her window just for me.
