I look out of the window, my eyes wandering off into the wide expanse of nothingness, my hands budging to adjust to the cold weather. An emotional realization leads me to the fact that I am alone in the house, with my parents and brother gone and I can do absolutely anything. This sensation of emprise forges me to kick off my fear and set out of the house to get some fresh air.
My hearts pounds at every step that I take towards the elevator, the freezing feeling runs down my hands to my feet, I manage to press the elevator button and within the next few moments, the door opens with a shudder. I enter into it and allow myself to relax until finally I reach the ground floor. I walk through the corridors of the lobby into the ground, my head throbs with undeniable fear of ghosts or even worse predators.
For a moment I let myself into the night sky, imagining about the small particle that we are. The night sky is dark with deep blue bruises framed perfectly on the pink scavenges, the dogs stray on the path barking at seemingly no one; the lights are all shut out, the drapes covering the scenarios of the horrors of the night. A black dog convulses rapidly in front of me, I take a step back and he is still staring at me with his wide white eyes. I run towards the elevator, inches away from the elevator I see him peacefully striding towards the opposite direction. The elevator door shuts as I get in it. My hands still tied with dread fail to press the button to my floor, but a strange and really magnificent force skids my hands on 5 random buttons, 32190.
After few frantic seconds the door opens: strange noises linger through my ears, my eyes bulge out trying to capture as much area of the new world as possible. This time no one pushes me but my conscious, it propels me to walk into the new area of strangeness and nothingness, my hands have gone numb with the constant exposure to dread, my eyes have never been more wide open and my life has never been in such grave danger.Read this story
