They had to dive off their bed, avoiding the dark gap between their mattress and the floor that housed the monster that had plaguing them all night. When is the last time you faced something that scared you so much? And yes, there are ways to deal with these nighttime fears. You can make them avoid all the scary parts of life but what kind of fun is that? Here's another way to deal.

And luckily for everyone involved, the inside of the costume includes absolutely no bugs.
