As he lay on bed trying to fall asleep, a crawling sensation on his exposed legs gave him the chills. He immediately got up in horror, but sighed in relief when he saw that the sensation on his legs was not caused by anything else but some ants that had somehow managed to get on his bed.
He swept the bedsheet with his hands to brush the ants away. The ants fell on to the floor and dispersed in random directions.
He lay flat on his bed again, trying to fall asleep. But just as he was about to enter the realm of dreams, the ants seemed to return as the crawling sensation came back.
Too lazy to get up again, and thinking what harm could a few ants do, he reached down towards his leg and tried to brush the ants aside again.
Only this time, his hand touched what felt like human fingers.
