Sleepwalking my way through life: Story time

Story time


It’s cold, but just bearably cold. You push yourself up, bringing yourself away from the cold, wet ground. Your hands sink in and feel like they’re covered in sludge. It’s too dark, and all you can do is hear and feel and smell and taste the room around you. Room? There are no doors, no windows; only solid walls that stretch up to God knows where.

You sit up and back into a corner, every muscle aching from punishment and your head reeling with dizzying thoughts. A painfully sharp throb comes from your stomach and you realise how long it’s been since you ate anything. You are too weak to move, too tired to sleep; you can do nothing but sit and breathe the rank, stale air.

Time passes. How long? You do not know, and neither do you care; but your attention is caught by a squeak and the sound of scuttling. A rat! Where? Where is it? Where?

You reach out and grab it, feeling it writhe in your grasp. A smile spreads across your face as you devour it, ripping the fur and skin and muscle from its scrawny figure. Your hunger lessens slightly, but you know that the world will never seem the same again.

Wow, that was amazing. Will you be posting more later? I'd love to read them.

Also, I've been informed that we have to be strict about timestamps, so if you could post the time of when your post was actually finished being written rather than a round-number, please do so.

Another thing, I'm having a drawing/contest at my blog. If you want to participate, the prize is a $10 sponsorship. The blog entry is here:
