"Where am I?" I wondered after waking up. I could see nothing, the sound of my own breath was the only noise breaking the silence. Suddenly, I realized my head was in such pain I could barely think rationally. All I could think was bad thoughts. War, pain, and death. Then, there was nothing. My mind was clear of everything.
My senses were slowly coming in. I could hear, taste, smell, and feel. Still yet, I could see nothing. While my sight was still gone, I decided to take advantage of my new found senses. I could hear something too light to be discerned, yet not quiet enough to be unnoticeable. I could smell something rotting, as if I was in a room of something long dead. My tongue tasted nothing aside from teeth that haven't been brushed in ages. I felt around me, feeling a thick, sticky liquid that I had to hope wasn't blood. Smelling what I had earlier obliterated that hope.
Out of nowhere, that light sound grew. It grew so quickly that you would've expected someone had plugged it into an amp. I realized that it was someone, no multiple people screaming. Their dread filled screams will haunt me forever. Then, out of the blue, they stopped. The only sound left was my ears ringing from the sudden halt in noise.
I then heard a booming voice ask, "What will you do?" In a mix of confusion and fear I manage to stutter out, "W-what do you m-mean?" It responds with only four simple words, "I think you know." It was then that it hit me, all of my thoughts from earlier, were things that I had done. "Now you see?" The three words were so full of meaning that they culd have filled a novel. It then said, "All of these things you have done, are very very wrong. You are dead now, yet I believe in second chances. So will you, or will you not, change your ways once I release you? Or would you rather suffer the fate of the souls of whom you heard screaming?" "Oh no. No, no, no, no, no. Please, if you allow me this second chance, I will change my ways, I swear it!" I cried, afterwards breaking down into tears.
"Very well," it said, as the blinding light filled the room.
