Who scares you now?

Who scares you now?

A Story by The Darkest Silhouette

short story for facebook.

When I was four, people told me, "you better be good, Santa Claus is watching."
At ten I knew Santa wasn't real (I tried convincing my parents he was though, by getting them a present that I signed "Santa") then it was, "You better be good, God is watching you."
By 16 I was firmly Buddhist and my parents stopped talking to me about God except in the theoretical, then they said, "You better behave yourself, or the cops will get you," as if they were a bodysnatching gestapo.
But now, I don't hear as much of that. I mean, my Dad will always be paranoid of the police, and rightfully so, but what I hear the most now is, "You'd better be good, or the pictures will be on facebook tomorrow."
