I can’t sleep. I think nighttime is dark so you can imagine your fears with less distraction. At nighttime, the world always seem so big and scary, and I always seem so small. I wish I could fall asleep, so it would be morning. Sighhhh… Look at Hobbes. HE’S asleep. Z. Heh heh… he sure looks funny when he sleeps. Tigers close their eyes so tight. I wonder what he’s dreaming about. Good ol’ Hobbes. What a friend. Z. Things are never quite as scary when you’ve got a best friend. Z Z Z Z Calvin sits and looks afraid. The night scares him. He is at his room and wearing a pajama. He watches Hobbes who sleeps peacefully. Calvin wonders what his animal friend is dreaming about and admires him for not being scared. He feels connected to Hobbes and is in the end able to fall asleep, since he has a best friend who makes him feel less afraid.
Do you have a best friend? Appreciate your friendship!
