Awake all night
When I cannot sleep well, I sit outside my house and I watch the night-time pass by.
Tonight, I cannot sleep, so like always, I am outside my house.
I sit on my porch and drink a warm cup of milk.
I am drinking my milk, watching the stars in the sky.
When suddenly I hear a noise.
"Who is there?" I shout.
There is no reply.
I hear the noise again, there is something in the bushes next to me.
"Hello! Who is there?" I repeat.
I am now a little nervous.
Normally, at this time of night, there is no noise.
It is always just me and the moon, but tonight things are different.
For the third time, I hear the noise next to me.
I jump up and get ready to run.
"For the final time, who is there?" I shout as loudly as possible.
Suddenly, my little brother jumps out of the bush as he laughs a lot.
"I scared you!" he shouts.
My little brother thinks he is funny.
I laugh a little because I do not want to tell him how scared I am.
Little brothers are always a problem, huh?
