Trapped

I woke up with a start from the nightmare that I kept having over and over every night. It was always the same- that I would die a gruesome death at the stroke of midnight. On which day, still remained a mystery; for all I know it would be days, months or even years before I die. 

I glanced at the digital clock near my bedside, that read 11:59 pm bathed in its luminous glow. The last thing I heard as I felt a hard blow behind my cranium was the sound of my own voice screaming; and then, there was nothing.

  2. A dream you wouldn't want to come true. :D
    Spooky indeed!
    And the best part was that I didn't even realize that it was a five sentences fiction until the end. You effortlessly packed the punch in just five sentences.

    1. I actually meant for it to actually come true, you know ;) A bit on the scarier side.. But now that you've mentioned it, it can be interpreted either ways! So, Thanks to you :)

      And you know I love you more :) xoxo
