Nightguard

by Ari Collins


When I was little I dreamt a man made of lava helped me trap all my recurring nightmares. He promised me he’d guard the jail forever.

I had no more bad dreams until after my high school graduation, when the lava man returned. “It wasn’t a jail,” he explained, laughing billowing ash. “Tonight everyone graduates.”
