My Other Half

Mystery / Horror

† Prologue †

"How did it comes to this?" those are the questions that rang in my head. The world seems to slow down and muted sounds rang through my ears. They're mouths moving as if calling out to something that I couldn't make out.

My body feels numb and the pain from the knife stabbed through my stomach isn't helping either. I didn't even felt it when my body collided against the cold tiled floor and blood gushed out of my wound.

"Nii... san..?" I said in a slow raspy voice before I coughed up blood violently.

Everything hurts so much to me. Now I know how dying feels like. My head feels heavy, my vision clouded and my body feels numb. But despite all, I still smiled "Because..."
