“Daddy, I had a bad dream.”
You blink your eyes and pull up on your elbows. Your clock glows red in the darkness — it’s 3:23. “Do you want to climb into bed and tell me about it?”
The oddness of the situation wakes you up more fully. You can barely make out your daughter’s pale form in the darkness of your room. “Why not, sweetie?”
“Because in my dream, when I told you about the dream, the thing wearing Mommy’s skin sat up.”
For a moment, you feel paralyzed; you can’t take your eyes off of your daughter. The covers behind you begin to shift.

no no no no nonooononononono why
ARRRRGGGHHH OMIGOD I’m traumatized
Good one! God, kids are creepy!
No no nononononononononoooooooooo… D:
Really left me with a feeling of dread after reading. Definitely added to the overall creepiness of the pasta. Especially since we see the child as an stereotypical innocent character, helped as well.
Wow too creepy bc kids DO tend to say creepy shit like that. Great story!
Hahahaha….hahaha… ha…. *looks at my girlfriend*
“damnit then why did you tell me!”
I enjoyed this one
When a pasta is so creepy that it legitimately gives you chills, it deserves praise.
Holy crap! I had to retread this like five times to really grasp it. But it is amazing and bone chilling. I just wish it had more to it. 5/5
10/10 Good job, gave me chills.
Didnt Read Lol
Not amazing, not terrible.
God, I hate the present tense.
Well, as I am a mother to a little boy and girl, I don’t think I will sleep tonight this writing is well put together. 5/5
OMG…………….. and that is why i sleep with a light on and a baseball bat beside me. and a Cross hanging above my head and a bible on my bedside table
It’s actually called The Thing That Wears Mommy’s Skin. Just so you know. Love the story.
Why was he scared? What if her mom just heard noise and woke up, LIKE A NORMAL HUMAN? Or maybe nature was calling. Or she was thirsty. -1/10
it was a pretty great story good job man just practice making them longer lol :3
Why the HELL is this NOT A MIND FUCK
I saw this after watching Sword Art Online, I ended up thinking about Kirito, and Asuna when they had Yui before she was deleted while reading this, it’s so sad. ;'(
I dont get it <(-.-<)
oh shit! wow nice pasta…….I liked “the thing wearing Mommy’s skin” so much! ……………it gave me the chills…………
I’m not sure I get it.
Well done. Creepy.
I fond it very good but did not make any sense
just make it longer and then maybe i will see to reading it again
I don’t really get it
That. Is. Good.
The way you’ve made it just a little story is really nice. I like it a lot
This gave me nightmares
The cliffhanger totally makes this particular story; well done.
This may be short but gave me a genuine chill, maybe it should be longer though? Even so, it was good. Keep up the good work!
A good short can be difficult. Very well done.
this is so creepy 0.0
Quite the interesting little story. I would have preferred a little more description to it, but as it is it’s still pretty good. The descriptions give just enough to see what’s going on, but also leave picturing the scene to the reader’s imagination. It’s hard to write super short things like this and still have a decent impact, so this’ll get a solid 7 or a possible 8 out of 10 from me~.
that’s not fair I sleep next to my mom at night T^T
Nuu whey?!?!? ;-;
welp… now im scared of my wife
this lets the imagination run wild, I like it a lot, good work
Im in bed next to my wife, and covers are rustling… goodbye cruel wor
and hell to the NO
Scared me so bad. Add a picture maybe though?
RUN FORREST, RUN!!!
BUT WHO IS MOM
This is should really be in the mindfuck tag.
This is pretty awesome.
The best creepypasta i have ever read
… a violent fight breaks out after who wins?…
My heart was pounding like crazy after reading this!!… Whoaw… Great job 5/5
WOW even though the story is really small, it was amazing I loved it!
As if horror movies weren’t enough. Now I feel like my children are medium demons.
i seen this on another website.
Jesus Christ. That was fricked up.
10/10, tapped into my reality because of how realistic the words flowed into my mind.
that’s the reason why i sleep with a sword
So… CREEPY. I love this kind of creepypasta, so freaky. (0-0)
This is pretty creepy.
Good one, not long but somehow still descriptive.
Ahh, one of the classics. Never gets old.
*waits for someordinarygamers to read this great story on youtube*
DAMN TASTY PASTA
This is one of the first creepypastas I read and it was just perfect then, I’ve read about 300 creepypastas and this is one of the once I remember reading the most
It would have been funny if the wife just woke up because she heard the daughter talking, and the dad is just flipping out. LOL
Is it gonna be like one of those Russian nesting dolls?
Like 5 sentences and you gave me more chills than The Rake, i’m not sleeping for….ever….
Short and sweet, just how I like it
Ooooh Mom, plz tell me ur reaaalll!
That’s why I always keep checking behind and in front of me when I lay awake in bed.
That gave me chills.
Not even kidding, why did that give me chills/
Literally the best scary story I have ever read and probably will ever read.
It is a great story, pretty original idea but I think it could be a bit more detailed. However, if you were going for short and sweet, I think its okay. 3.7/5
Oh no! Tell me that it’s her daddy that’s just dreaming..
OMG… this pasta creeped me out and reminded me why we are scared of the dark
I haven’t witnessed my bedsheets moving on their own, and I don’t want to.
BUT WHO WAS PHONE??
Boring and unsatisfying. 2/10
wow…..this is good Im pretty sure the “thing” is the rake
(To wife) “I’m going to go sleep on the couch”
This is REALLY creepy for me to think about…. Why? Because I used to do that as a kid. I wouldn’t wanna wake my parents up after having a nightmare because of that EXACT thing and I just went into their room, sat on the floor, and cried xD
Children always increase horror factor. Brava
It’s short but scary. Good job.
Ok, I’m never sleeping again O_O
Now, this was a Eerie and tasy pasta.
My little brother alllways does this to my parents……..glad i left before tthe house got invaded by a psycopathic creature stripped the skin off my mom and hid in it……
not like i was planning on sleeping, its all good, i have insomnia anyway. its time for a good nightmare.
