Awake All Night

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?
