He was behind the couch the whole time!
Actually, no but it was fun to type. I am a bit suprised by the form but as soon as I saw the type of creature, I remembered more from last night. As I was drifting off to sleep, I suddenly found myself at the base of a cliff. The vision was on and off in an instant but it was crystal clear. As soon as I returned from that all oto brief journey, an animal raced across my bed. I was fully awake at the time. It's foot scraped across my watch. The sound was distinct and jarring, especially, since I don't wear a watch.
I am not going to reveal the type of animal just yet or maybe ever. We'll see.
