Introduction

The dead body hung over my head like a joint of beef in a butchers. It seemed to move, as if animated, yet I knew it was only maggots crawling through the corpse, searching for some form of life. A seed of terror started to grow inside me, creeping through my veins, engulfing my brain in thoughts I wish I could push away. I dared myself to take a step forward. The emotions I felt whirled through my body, making me feel more than alive, like a swarm of angry bees. The dark told me stories, the silence whispering in my ear, but I didn't know which were real and which were my imagination. I couldn't believe this day had come. The one I had nightmares about. The one I wished I could erase forever. I fell to the ground, clutching my hair, and for a split second I couldn't bring myself to the reality of it all.

After searching the bedrooms for any signs of life I crept along to the bathroom. Hearing the rush of running water, I took a deep breath. Grabbing the handle I braced myself for what to expect. Pushing open the door my face was struck by the warm fog that filled the room, curling itself around me like a python to it's victim, I took a cautious step forward. ...read more.

Conclusion

I stood there. The dead body hung over my head like a joint of beef in a butchers. It seemed to move, as if animated, yet I knew it was only maggots crawling through the corpse, searching for some form of life. A seed of terror started to grow inside me, creeping through my veins, engulfing my brain in thoughts I wish I could push away. I dared myself to take a step forward. The emotions I felt whirled through my body, making me feel more than alive, like a swarm of angry bees. The dark told me stories, the silence whispering in my ear, but I didn't know which were real and which were my imagination. I couldn't believe this day had come. The one I had nightmares about. The one I wished I could erase forever. I fell to the ground, clutching my hair, and for a split second I couldn't bring myself to the reality of it all. Why couldn't he just leave me and my family alone? The love I felt for my mother was so unbreakable, like an everlasting universe, nobody realised its greatness or individuality and nobody could ever possibly understand it. Newfound pain inside me screamed to get out, to be let free, but it was embedded in my soul. Forever. ...read more.
