Sleepwalking
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Richie was having his buddy, Mark, sleep over at his house tonight. They played, had some snacks, and watched a few movies. Then it was lights out.
 
2     An hour or two after Richie and Mark fell asleep, Mark awoke to a rustling. He opened his eyes and realized it was Richie.
 
3     "What's the matter, Richie?" Mark asked. "Go back to bed." Richie did not respond. Instead, Richie sat up and got out of his sleeping bag. He was wandering around the room, looking dazed and confused. He kept rubbing his eyes. They were open, but it didn't appear that Richie knew what he was doing.
 
4     Richie's dad walked into the living room. "What's the matter boys?" Dad asked. Mark pointed in Richie's direction. "I don't know what's wrong, sir," Mark said. "He's not answering me."
 
5     As soon as Dad took a look at Richie, he knew what was happening. "Oh, he's sleepwalking again." Gently, Dad guided Richie back to his sleeping bag.
 
6     "I didn't know Richie was a sleepwalker," Mark said. "In fact, I've never known any sleepwalkers."
 
7     "Sleepwalking is common in kids. It runs in families. I was a sleepwalker. It usually only happens once in a while and most kids outgrow it by the time they are teenagers. I know I did," Dad said.
 
8     "What is sleepwalking?" Mark asked.
