The hospital


The hospital...that's all it was. That’s what they said. How wrong could they be…

Trembling away in terror, I stumbled back into the wall,tightly grasping my teddy, my eyes frozen on the shadow rippling over my form. The white walls were now stained with blood, bloody bed covers were thrown back in horror as people ran for their life. They didn't make it out the door. I was next. The shadow loomed even closer. Their eyes gleaming from the dark, a glaze over surface as if it were a window. I quivered at the monster. My heart thudded loudly in my chest. Dead bodies surrounded me. Their throats slit , like someone had cut a piece of cake; a trainglar shape. The shadow rippled closer. My screams of terror could not be heard.

"Please don't hurt me!" The shadow chuckled lowly at me. It's tongue clicked off the top of it's mouth.

I shivered but did not look up. My eyes traced the shadow as my heart thumped loudly in my chest. Suddenly, a cold hand clasped around my throat as it lifted me into the air. My little fingers pried at it, my teddy still tight in my grasp. The shadow released a bellowing laugh which represented a wail, it's fingers letting me slip from it's grasp . I covered my ears as I staggered over a dead body, it's hand limply catching my foot. Shaking it off, I search for something to catch the approaching shadow. A glinting knife caught my eye. My hand shot out. I didn't hesitate as I flung it at the beast. It's claw like hand clasped it's chest as it gasped for air and light. Staggering backwards, it fell over a dead body before slumping to the floor.

A victorious smile brushes on my teeth as I grin at him. The fur of teddy evaporates into the smooth handle of a deadly knife, layers of blood coat it as the cover falls to the ground. Observing the knife, I run it's spine down my tongue, the iron blood flows into my mouth. I moan at it's taste. It is beautiful. Glancing at the mirror, I wipe the blood from my face. Skipping, I step over my victim's bodies and laugh. No one would expect a 'child'. It was always like this. Dropping the knife, which clatters to the ground, I walk over to corner. My footsteps cold and calculated as I slide down the wall. Bringing my knee's to my chest, I shiver with terror, a tear wells in my eye as I wait for help to come. Taking my victims in one more time, I smile in one final victory. The hospital...that's all it was. They would say. How wrong were they...it is where I like to play.

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Sammy Styles: It is one of those stories that keeps you on the hook till the last moment. A roll of pictures were piling up and with continuous moving, it was like I was watching a film. The scenes were dramatic with a bit of every emotion. The story contains every essence of mystery, romance and adventur...

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me.

Deleted User: What a story. It may be short and small but it is mighty and massive in creativity. However, I did not feel any romance in the story rather than a lot of horror. It was a great read and I cannot wait to see what this author has next on the agenda. Sometimes short stories have the best content and...
