Night Watchman and the Kitten

Once upon a time, there was a security guard named Mark who always worked the night shift. He was a hard worker and took his job very seriously, but he had one big problem: he was afraid of the dark.

Mark had to work all alone in a big, dark warehouse, keeping it safe and secure. He would often hear strange noises and imagine all sorts of terrifying things lurking in the shadows. The fear made it very difficult for him to do his job, and he constantly worried about what might happen to him while he was alone in the warehouse at night.

Despite his fear, Mark knew that he had to overcome it if he wanted to continue working as a security guard. He began by taking small steps, such as using a flashlight when he patrolled the warehouse, and bringing a radio to listen to music while he worked. These things helped to ease his fear a bit, but they didn’t solve the problem entirely.

One night, while on patrol, Mark heard a strange noise that sounded like it was coming from one of the storage rooms. He knew he had to investigate, but his fear of the dark was holding him back. He took a deep breath and reminded himself that he was a professional and that he was there to keep the warehouse safe.

With his flashlight in hand, Mark approached the storage room and cautiously opened the door. To his surprise, he found a small kitten that had become trapped inside. He carefully picked up the kitten and held it close, feeling its tiny heart beat against his chest. The kitten’s presence filled Mark with warmth and he realized that he didn’t have to face his fear alone.

From that night on, Mark brought the kitten to work with him every night. The kitten was his companion, his friend and helped to keep him company during the long, lonely nights in the warehouse. With the kitten by his side, Mark was no longer afraid of the dark. He could now patrol the warehouse with confidence and the courage he needed to do his job.

Mark’s bravery brought him the admiration of the warehouse staff and he is now known as a fearless security guard. He continues to work night shift with his beloved companion and never once again had a fear of the dark.
