Room 101

Extracts from this document...


Room 101 "You'll be staying in room 101," called out the receptionist. Her booming voice echoed off the walls. Room 101. I had an uneasy feeling about this room, like I had heard of it before, yet, nothing came to mind. I had taken one step when I heard a clicking sound. Two big, strange men grabbed me, hauled me up four flights of stairs, at which point something sharp was injected into my neck, causing me to pass out on the cold, wooden floor. I opened my eyes to find myself in a room as dark as the midnight sky. I tried to move my head to look around, but it was strapped tightly into place on a headboard. My hands and feet were tied firmly to the chair I was placed on by some sort of rope, which I couldn't see due to the intense darkness which filled the room. The room was as cold as snowflakes on a winter's day. Where was I? Somewhere I hoped I would never visit again. The room where everybody's deepest, darkest, untold fears came true; Room 101 and unfortunately for me, my fear was nasty, disgusting flies. Ever since I was young I had always had a fear of flies. ...read more.


I took in a deep breath of air through my nose as I could finally breathe properly again. A gush of relief flowed through my body, but little did I know, the worst was yet to come. I slowly raised my eyes up, fearful of what I was about to see. It was like a sea of black waves. The air was filled with flies which were all coming down towards me, landing on every inch of my skin. I was terrified, I had the need to scratch all over and I wanted to scream. But I didn't dare, as I already knew the consequences of that. Tears were now pouring out of my burning red eyes and were falling down my fly filled cheeks as I had to sit here and bear this horrific feeling. I struggled desperately trying to break my hands free from this chair and get the vile things off me. But the more I writhed, the tighter the rope seemed to get. Once I had finally realised that this was not going to work, I shut my eyes tight and tried to block out the feeling. My wrists were sore and I could feel blood dripping down from them. I cried silently, tears flowing down my face; I prayed to god that this nightmare would end, one way or another. ...read more.


When I woke up I was in hospital, full of people surrounding my bed side. The doctors told me I was lucky to be alive. If my phone hadn't had a tracking device in it and my friend hadn't noticed I wasn't with the group, I wouldn't be alive. All my friends and family had come to see me. Questions came at me from all directions. I opened my eyes. "Are you alright?" I heard one voice ask. "What happened?" I heard another "Do you know how you got there?" asked a friendly voice. I just closed my eyes and shook my head, drifting in and out of sleep. I couldn't tell anybody what had happened- I never have. But it will always be there, pushed to the back of my head, haunting me. Whenever I hear somebody say 'Room 101' a shiver runs down my spine. I, Rebecca Gayle, had survived Room 101 and lived to tell the tale. Some people think I'm one of the lucky ones. Personally, I thought I was one of the unlucky ones. I had to face room 101 and to this day, I can still remember every thought, live every feeling and remember all the pain. If you ask me, I'm not lucky at all. ?? ?? ?? ??
