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.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

RedX9: I would love it if you would show how she is the bottom of the class. A paragraph alone isn't enough to show this.If she was such a screw up, how did she pass and graduate from the class. Are her teachers this lax that they would allow a screw up to graduate?I didn't understand the schooling syst...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Brie Lundy: I have never read a story like this before. It was riveting. It kept me captive. Once I started it I couldn't stop until it was finished. 10/10. I need more of this book. They need to find the Wizard!!

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

Shayleen Seiberg: See, I wasn't sure if I'd like this story. But it turned out extremely well. It kept me interested the whole entire time. The only thing wrong with it is there are multiple grammatical errors. Not punctuation wise, but spelling wise and word placement wise. But overall, I loved the book.

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...

dragonswilleise: I loved this book, it was nearly impossible to put down from start to finish. It was fast passed without being overwhelming and slowed down where needed. Overall this was an amazing novel that I will definitely recommend to others.
