The Unearthly Asylum

 

She walked tirelessly along the dark passageways looking for others like her.

 

Pipes banged, doors drummed, moans echoed.

The humming of song, the repetitive tap-tap-tap of fingers.

The creaking of ancient floors.

 

This place scared her.

 

Demonic cries and agonizing screams – these were not from those like her.

 

Her walking took her to the midpoint of a dank hallway, where at its end, a white light glowed. Filled with Angelic faces, smiling children and figures in white; they all beckoned her. ‘These must be the ones’ she thought. But an odd, uncomfortable feeling ran down her spine: Something was wrong.

 

Behind her, the shrieks, the cries and the noise became louder and louder. She wanted to run, but both directions made her too afraid. For a moment, she just stood, rigid.

 

Then a hand on her shoulder made her scream. The hand was that of her Nurse.

 

She was gently guided back to her room. Too terrified to recount what had just happened, she allowed the Nurse to sedate her.

 

But, before falling into slumber, she swore she heard some chatter. All she ‘thought’ she could hear was: “Let the poor girl stay in limbo a little while longer. Once the good Doctor has finished with her, then I promise, you’ll be free to drag her to hell”.

 

Then the next morning, her Doctor came to visit.
