My greatest childhood fear

The greatest fear I had as a child was the fear of the coat rack that my brother made for me. I know that sounds silly as an adult but as a child I was terrified of it. The coat rack wasn’t that tall, maybe 4 feet. It was made of wood and had a round top. It was located in one of the corners of my room and when night came all I could do was wait for it to change .

I never hung anything on it but every night it would take on the shape of the grim reaper. I would see a cloaked figure materialize in the corner like it was attached to the coat rack. It caused many sleepless nights for me and eventually my parents moved it out of my bedroom and into the garage.
