  1. “Under The Bed was safe once more.”

    The perfect ending to a sweet, imaginative tale. Great job!

  2. Yay! Those under-the-bed monsters are bad. I hope the closet is safe, too 🙂

    Oh, I agree- 33 words was tough. I couldn’t get in everything I’d wanted to write, but I guess that’s the point, eh?

    • The closet people gotta get their own Hero 😉 Ha, yeah, I went through about 20 iterations just to get it close to 33 words…

    Those under the bed stories conjure up so many wonderful images. Nicely done.

    • Thank you 🙂 I admit I made myself laugh when I wrote that, figured that Under The Bed was right next door to Far Far Away, ha.

  4. So glad that ‘Under The Bed’ was safe once more. It can be such a dangerous place. I enjoyed your take on the prompt.

    • Thank you 🙂 I still clearly remember leaping at least two feet clear of the bed any time I had to get up at night as a kid, so I figured it would be nice to have a hero keeping it safe

  5. Love this! Thank goodness Under The Bed has such a brave champion! 🙂

    Can you send him along to my place? I’m tired of jumping the last three feet to the bed haha

  7. Hooray! All the sock people that must inhabit Under the Bed will be very happy.

  8. I wonder how he would fare against the clawed, furry, meowing dragon in my kingdom?
    This is delightful. Thank you for linking up!

  9. That last line is awesome! Nicely done!

  10. What a beauty!!! 😀 Amazing!!! 🙂
