Kids Bedtime Short Stories: Lino the Lamp is afraid of the dark
Lino the Lamp is a night lamp. Every night, Lino dreads the moment he is switched off just when Mrs. Lee is about to sleep. He is a lamp, after all, and is not used to being in the dark.
Ali Alarm Clock needs to hold Lino down as he gets on the verge of a panic attack! ‘Help! I can’t see!’
‘Shush!’ Ali will say. ‘You will wake everyone up.’
‘Isn’t that better so we are not left in the dark?’ Lino will say.
Lino the Lamp is afraid of the dark. There are lots of horrible things that could happen:
– maybe there will be a big tiger that will jump from behind and scratch him to shreds
– maybe there will be monsters that will sneak up from underneath and eat him alive
– maybe there will be vampire bats that will come down from the ceiling and attack him
– or even worse. there may be aliens that will kidnap him and use his parts for their spaceship!
