A Rude Awakening

I awoke suddenly to the sound of footsteps. The room around me is dark and in disrepair. My head is pounding. Where am I? What am I doing here? --Who am I? I push myself off the ground my muscles aching. What was I doing here? My eyes begin to adjust to the lack of light. I'm in a dining room, there's a large wooden table in front of me, a china hutch to my left, an arched entryway behind me, and letting in a sliver of light a door that is ajar. Chairs and glassware is strewn around the room.

I hear the footsteps again. Thump, thump, thump. My aching head not able to pick up the direction of the sound. All I know is each time I hear those steps my heart pounds harder as though something deep inside feels as though I'm being hunted. I walk toward the door with the light. At least I may be able to find someone else.

While stepping across the debris covered floor I hear the sound of footsteps again this time accompanied by the sound of a tune being whistled. It sounds so familiar. The new sound startles me I slip on a broken and trip over a chair trying to recover. Here we are, back on the ground.

I hear the whistling again. It's closer. I turn around on my knees crunching the glass beneath me and look to the arched entryway. I see the silhouette of a tall figure with large pointed ears. I start standing up so I can back away more easily.

The figure approaches. As it approaches the light is able to cast over it and I am able to make out the form. The figure appears to be male in a full black suit with a large white bunny head mask with red eyes and red splatters on its face. His hands are cover with gloves I assumed used to be white if they weren't dripping in red in his right hand he held an iron fire-poker to his side. Seeing me he cocked his head to the side and started to quicken his pace.

Confused and scared I ran through the lit door into what I discovered was the kitchen. The adrenaline kicked in and I didn't observe anything in the kitchen. My brain's only objective was to run. I rushed out of a swinging door into a dark hallway. To my left was a large dark room, to my right was more hallway, angled away were stairs.

I bolted to the right down the hall. There has to be an exit this way. Why am I here? Who was that? Who am I?

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot.

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
