1. Inhale, Exhale
About 15 years ago, my boyfriend got out of bed to get ready for work. He would sometimes do a workout before taking a shower, but for some reason, he decided to do his workout in the bedroom. I was really tired and I tried to keep sleeping. I hadn’t even opened my eyes yet…but his breathing was getting really heavy and raspy, and I was unable to get back to sleep.
He was making so much noise and I was getting so mad. Little did I know something dark was at play. I turned over and opened my eyes to tell him to shut up—only to find nobody in the room. The breathing suddenly stopped and I got a chilly feeling.
