This made him feel insecure and felt that they were spying on him. This made him insecure and felt that they had laid a trap for him, and hence was alert to protect himself from becoming the victim.

The valet who brought his morning cup of tea just tripped over the unexpected bed. Thus he, himself became a victim by trying to avoid being tricked.

Answer:
At first, the speaker didn't dare to get into the bed because he was sure that his friends had made some arrangement in the bed for a prank.

Later, he decided to sleep on the bed because his friends would laugh at him for being afraid of their tricks. He didn't wanted to show that he was scared and couldn't let them have so much fun at his expense and went to the bed to challenge them.
