Andy's Nightmare
(by: Glm)

One night just before bedtime, Andy watched a television show about

space monsters. These monsters were ugly and unkind. They came to this

world to destroy the human race.

That night after tossing and turning, Andy finally fell asleep. He dreamt

about space monsters coming to invade his house. The monsters came in

flying saucers and landed in his garden. When they came into the house,

the monsters ran straight into Andy's room and tried to strangle him.

Andy ran as fast as he could towards the door. But before he could reach

the door knob he tripped and hit his face on the carpet.

At this moment, Andy woke from his sleep. He found himself lying on

the floor next to his bed. He was relieved it was only a nightmare.
