My Worst Nightmare This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

As I lay in my bed, staring into the
darkness of my room
The thought of sleep has just completely
escaped my mind
And then in my mind, I hear a BOOM!!!
I jump up instantly and look around

Just realizing that it was nothing, I slowly laid my head back on my pillow
Realizing that just staring wasn't gonna
do anything, I got up to get water
After the water, I'm walking back to room, until I feel something touch me
I instantly jump and dropping my water
onto the kitchen floor
As I clean up, I'm looking into the floor,
and I see a reflection

I see someone else who looks like me
With every piece of facial feature that's
exactly mine
Next thing I know, I see the other girl
smiling mischievously at me
I see sharp pointy teeth, red eyes, and
matted hair, and a really dark complexion of the skin
As I lay in my bed, staring into the darkness of my room
I finally realize, that I am my worst
nightmare
