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.

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

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.

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

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). ...

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

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 -

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming).

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life.

ryder: This is an excellent read. From beginning to end the author showed his creative and imaginative writing skills. Twists and turns, surprises, humor, and sorrow: This book has it all. I strongly recommend this book, and I am already recommending it to my friends.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...
