The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin



This is a little something along the lines of a nightmare or fear. It's short and to the point. Does the possibility frighten you?  Share your thoughts.

Aberration

Nobody is left. I don't know what has happened. It's been two whole days now. Why or how I am still here remains a mystery. Aliens? Biochemical warfare? I can't answer that. I drove to the store and passed cars sitting at lights. The drivers eyes open, they were just sitting unmoving. The parking lot was the same, people sitting in vehicles.

The store was empty. I left my money on the counter and drove home. There is nothing on the television, cable is off. The internet is down. Even my cell phone is useless.

I sit here writing this, ignoring the voices I hear. It's too quiet. They are trying to get my attention, I think. If I don't acknowledge them, then I don't acknowledge that this is happening. I just sit here and continue to write until the madness takes over...

I think if everyone was gone and I was hearing voices, I would need their company. Madness would be a welcome distraction!

Does more than frighten -- terrifies me! Please, oh, please let me never experience this in my lifetime!

Paula - That is really cool, it takes strength to use the madness to your advantage. :)

Diane - Sorry I terrified you. The thought terrifies me to a point. By writing it out, it helped me think about my reaction.

Thank you to both of you lovely ladies for taking the time to read and comment. :)

Super interesting stuff you've been posting lately! I'm noticing themes of obliteration and facing world-changing catastrophes alone.
