Today's writing prompt was to put yourself in the dark and write what happens. (Taken from 642 Things to Write About)
I had a lot of fun with this one. Let's just say I have some personal experience where this topic is concerned. haha
Let me know what you think in the comments!

I open my eyes, but still can't see anything. I swing my legs off the bed and stand, bumping into the bookshelf next to the bed. Water splashes on my bare foot, and I realize I've just managed to spill my glass of water all over the floor. I shuffle toward the door, keeping one hand on the mattress to guide me. I trip and stumble over a shoe, bumping my hip into the metal corner of the laundry hamper. I reach out toward the wall, feeling for the switch with my fingers. I press the button, and blink in the brilliant light from the LED on the ceiling.
