    Moths, you see one then it's gone,

    and probably about to fly right past you. If a moth comes into one of the rooms, I'm straight for the spray. Jump every time one flies past me unexpectedly

    and they always come in at night because the doors and windows have to be open because it's too hot. And literally no one in my family takes me seriously and refuse to get the moth for me, so I'm just left hiding under a blanket..

    Teresa The Moth

    From the time I was four, I remember my sister telling me a story about Teresa the moth...who was going to come and suck the soul out of my body.  She would enact flapping wings to take the terror of Teresa to a new dimension.  To this day, any flapping wings will induce pure...

    FEAR
