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.

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

marycombs14: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,. I loved the view inside of the life of a South Asian girl/woman, the emotional self-talk, the customs and preferences, the expectations a...

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

Kastril Nomenclature: What a fascinating work: a photo that seems to reveal a strange figure in the window of an old hotel leads to a mystery about a missing page of Queen Victoria's diary! This is a mystery in the best sense, with small clues leading to bigger ones, all of them building one upon the other to the quie...

Shelley Miller: The ideas and the set up and this are amazing! The feel of the story goes from science fiction to horror to suspense all in a big, thrilling ball. I really like your character so far and her powers and the idea of the ark being a person. The world is intense and gritty and clever as well. While a...
