Where did he go?

Having someone stay up all night and watch you sleep is one of the most romantic (and at times equally creepy) thing anyone can do.

It is not everyday I wake up because I felt someone's eyes piercing through my skin.  You see, I lock my room from the inside, just in case any ghosts feel like haunting me in the night.  Even balcony door is closed and locked from the inside.  No ghosts are gonna haunt my room without my permission.

Anyhoo, so yesterday I felt someone was looking at me.  (yes, yes, my senses are super even when I'm asleep)  I opened my eyes and there was the faint light of the streetlight falling in the room.  But the light was enough for me to feel someone else's presence in my room.

I removed my light saber switched on the light and that's where I saw him.

My first instinct was to find the water bottle and hit him hard on his head or send a slipper flying across the room.  The idea of the slipper appealed to me more.

I bent down to pick up my slippers, taking my eyes off him for less than 2 seconds and by the time I looked up, he was gone.  Vanished.  Almost as if he was never there in the first place.

I looked around desperately trying to find him, but he just wasn't there.  Despite the fact that the doors were all locked. 

Where did he go?

And how am I supposed to live with the fact that a spider (we can never be sure if they have any superpowers or not) and I live in the same enclosed room and we are breathing the same air?  I live in the constant fear of spotting him again and not having my slipper handy again and he will again pull up a vanishing act. 

Is this how you treat the future God? (here God is me, FYI)
