You wake up in the middle of the night. Your cat is cozily nested behind your knees and the weight of your blanket warms your tired body nicely. You sigh happily. When you are about to drift again into a sweet slumber, your cat hisses and runs frantically off your bed and hides behind the curtains.
She has never acted so oddly before, and that upsets you. You look around in your room for anything that could have startled her but nothing is out of the ordinary. You stay still and listen for anything unusual. You can hear your cat drinking water from her bowl in the hall, making that disgusting slurping sound that always disturbs you. Relieved that nothing is wrong, you lie back down and pull your blanket up to your chin.
But before you close your eyes, you see the shadowy silhouette of your feline friend ducking under your desk, her hair standing up. You gasp. If it isn’t your cat drinking water then where does the sound come from?
Slowly and as silently as possible you get off your bed. But despite your best efforts, the old wooden framework groans loudly. You freeze. The slurping sound stops for a second before it resumes. Any doubts that this was your imagination’s doing are cast away.
Heart pounding on your chest, you tiptoe your way to the door. You step out of your room and look across the hallway, towards your cat’s bowl. And there you see her.
Your mother, crouching on hands and knees. Her limbs are long and skinny and her fingers are gaunt and bony. Her messy hair covers her pale, distorted face; her skin stretched against her cheekbones. She is licking greedily the water in your cat’s bowl with a tongue black as coal and twice the normal size.
Suddenly, she stops. She slowly turns her head towards you. She stares deeply into your eyes; her pupils two unmoving dots of malice.
You jump in panic and run back into your room while your mother gallops on all fours towards you. You close the door behind you, moments before it starts shaking violently; loud bangs echoing across the house. You quickly throw your body against the door, blocking it. The whole doorframe quakes fiercely, but you hold firm.
Then, the banging stops. An otherworldly sense of stillness hangs in the air. After a few seconds of excruciating silence, the knob starts turning.
“Honey, is something wrong?” you hear your mother’s soothing voice from the other side. “Why did you close the door? I am worried. Please, let me in.”

Makes me feel like tonight is gonna suck.
This story made me slightly uncomfortable.
I’m not into this sort of writing but compared to the others like this I’ve read, I like this one. Yeah, there’s a big chunk of “why?” left after but there’s the main point that it unsettled and creeped me out which is all I’m looking for when I’m reading all these creepypastas.
Good pasta man
*locks every door in the house*
That was AWESOME
ummmmm *very scared* creeeeeeeeek “what was that”
This makes me wonder if the person who turns my lights off when I’m asleep is actually my mother….
i loved it
It gave me chills like a good pasta should.
Really well done. I am in love with the seemingly non-sequitur paranormal monster you have made.
Cool story, cant stop looking over at my mom….. oh crap, she just smiled at me….
‘Locks all doors in house, runs to room, hides under covers’
It left as a cliffhanger. Cliffhangers suck. You made it better though with the creature being the mom. 6/10
very good indeed *impressed* very good *goes and locks bedroom door* very good
Damn son! Nice scary as heck pasta! Little bit of a cliff hanger. Keep writing! you’ve got a lot of potential! 9/10
Wow. That’s…unsettling. Love that ending. 8/10
I kind of don’t get what you were trying to do here haha 8/10 tho
Oh ma lord…
Five stars all day can’t sleep without locking my door and keeping a knife under my pillow

10/10 I’m not sleeping tonight
…. who the hell turns off the lights when I’m alone sleeping??? This pasta made me think about that º___º
I’m having second thoughts on sleeping.
Well I’m not thirsty or anything. . . *locks my door* I’m uneasy now.
Hmmm so anyone is scared of the ir Mother now
It was good, made me paranoid about who to trust, but seems like a story I read before. 7/10
This is absouletly beautiful c:
Reminds me of the movie the visit
Loved the mindfuck, want to know what happens next…
Ahh! this creeped me out so much! but it is so good!
Wow… That was really good. I love how you used phrases like “greedily licking” and “unmoving dots of malice”
Kind of unsettling but overall really good. [Though I don’t like the overused cliche of the animal “Sensing” the entity.] 4/5 Good job.
welp there goes me sleeping at my moms house tonight or… any other night it is REALLY awesome keep up good work 😛
I love My mom though
*grabs cat and locks self in bedroom*
Quite spooky! Very, very, very good read in my opinion, the use of detail is absolutely perfect. Definitely DO READ if you’re looking for a paranoia factor!
Very good pasta. It was well written and gave me the creeps. 10/10
My mother jump-scared me as soon as I finished reading. XD
pretty good I like it.
Oh God shouldnt have read this at 2am
*locks all doors*
YAY more fule for my paranoia
The description of the mom creeped me the fuck out, nice job!
Very descriptive. The word gallop really paints a sinister picture of how fast the situation is occurring. I also love the contrast of the story.
so….not everyone’s mother drinks out of the pets bowl?
Hey maaaaaaaaaaa? How 2 file restraining orderz furr dummies?
Not many can write well in second person, props to you my friend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great pasta *grabs katana from from under the bed*
I like this. Pretty creepy shortpasta. GJ
Not at the peak of perfect descriptions, but it’s still entertaining.
And this is why i dont like my cat because he always talks to me like my mother.
this made really uncomfortable and ill start sleeping with my bedroom door locked and a chair proped infront of it
Wait, so was that person at the end your actual mom hearing the commotion coming to check on you? Was that creature just posing as your mom or was it actually your mom turning into a monster or was it actually your mom who had demonic intentions? If it was actually your mom, did it turn back into your actual mom to come in and check on you or is it still just the creature wanting into your room? So many questions .O. Amazing story, 10/10
Omg….Don’t usually get scared by this site often but…..Mother fudging this one got me
Is the mother dead or something?
Check out the video I made on this!
why haven’t my mom and dog fought yet… XD
This story is beautifully uncomfortable for me…I love it…It is a great story..
