Where am I?

The Room

     "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.

Catherine Kopf: This novel has an interesting perspective on a broken mind that obviously the author took a lot of time into creating. The main protagonist is very fleshed out and complex, allowing the readers to root for and feel empathy towards him. There is enough in there to really give the reader an emotion...

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

Cat32: I enjoyed the good versus evil aspect of this novel, especially as the protagonist has to discover how to access that good to save his family. I sat down to begin reading this story, and only put it down long enough to eat with the family! the book does an excellent job of building the suspense, ...

Alicia Cameron: Wow, this story had me hooked from the beginning. There were so many plot twists, just when J.T. thought he'd won, something else happened. You're a very creative writer, and I don't know if this was your first story but it's well done.

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

Alex Rushmer: I just read the first two chapters of this story and really enjoyed it. I have to admit......I have a real problem with insects, especially nasty ones like what are in this story. I don't think that I'll read any more, but I did like what I read. It was interesting seeing different instances in w...

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections.

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.
