I killed a gecko today.
I naturally hate thing that creep and crawl. I hate it when they get into my house. Un-invited.
I was going into the kitchen to get a snack. That was when I saw it, balancing on my wall like it owned the place. I took a step forward and it moved in sync. I was upset.

I waited for a bit, and the "idiat" also waited, playing a game with me. So I went to the kitchen and picked up a broom. I was scared and bold at the same time. Scared that it would jump at me, bold that I could kill it. I also took a can of insecticide. 
I was so battle ready and glad that no one was in to watch my drama.
I sprayed it first with insecticide and it promptly fell to the ground. I screamed and jumped back, then started using my broom to attack. 
It climbed back on the wall, and I tried to hit it forcefully, in the process, I grazed the knuckle of my index finger. That didn't stop me for a second. I hit it again and chopped off the tail.
It climbed back up and I hit it again. Using all the fury I could muster and muttering to myself "you had better die, because I wont give up until you do so".
Finally, I dealt the death blow, and I was extremely satisfied. I gathered the remains and flushed it then examined my hands. I couldn't believe that I had gotten injured in the process, and it was so painful too.
I cleaned up my finger and went to bed, my snack forgotten.
Before I knew it, I was awakened by someone calling my name. I woke up and saw the gecko that  I thought I killed. I was so afraid. I looked up and saw several others making their way towards me.  All of them had one mishap or the other, broken tails, dismembered bodies, you name it. I started to cry out in fear, but the one that called my name laughed at me, telling me that it was futile.
I shivered and asked God to deliver me as the geckos started getting on my bed, telling me the circumstances surrounding their death and who was responsible - me
They started to climb on me... I screamed!
I woke up to the wails my nephew who had crawled to my room to play with me. Apparently, he it was that was touching my body and using it as a testing ground for his toy car!
I tried to console him as shivers ran down my spine...what a horrible dream!
I looked up, and saw a gecko...I though it winked at me..
