| Terrance was tucked into bed, his teeth were brushed, his clothes put away, and he was ready to sleep the whole night long. Saying good-night, Mother gave him a good-night kiss.|
Mother shut off the light and started to close the door.
"Mother!" cried Terrance. "It's dark, the monster under the bed will get me!"
"Terrance," said Mother. "You shouldn't worry about things like that, it's just your imagination. Now get some sleep," she said with a motherly smile. And closed the door.
