Short Story: Sky Beneath Her Bed

She wakes at night to light spilling out from under her bed.

How strange.

She shuffles in bed until she lays across it. Then, without touching the floor, she cautiously looks under her bed.

There’s a sky beneath her bed.

Not just a sky. Like looking down the world from an aeroplane, she sees through the clouds valleys, fields, and hills populated by people, trees, buildings, and more.

She wriggles forward and stretch her arm until she can touch the sky. A wispy cat wraps its tail around her fingers.


She wriggles the rest of the way off her bed and dives into the sky beneath her bed.
