Beyond Life...

A Story by Neetha
"

Forever and always..

"

Slowly, she opened her eyes. Horrifying darkness blanketed around her.


She scrambled out of her bed and made her way towards the infamous lunatic asylum.


As expected, he was there, patiently waiting for her arrival. 


The in-charge doctor gave a deep sigh. As the doctor looked on, he started talking with her and all the Doc could see was him conversing with an invisible woman.


Then, two burly guards dragged him away from her to the secluded world of metal chains.


“Tomorrow I’ll be with you!” he promised as she made her way back towards her home- her grave.

You are very kind and I love your work. You are welcome Neetha.
As a short horror story, it hits the mark.
But i would like it longer.
Slowly she opened her eyes. Darkness surrounded her.
She could see the light of the asylum in the distance.
The walk would be slow.
He would be waiting.

I am really glad to read that from you Paul:)
Thank you!
Very sad, you managed to write a whole story in a few lines and leave the reader imagining what happened! Very good!

Thank you dear Hebe:)
Much appreciated!
Do you think your reader might appreciate your thoughts more if they were not so rushed and breathlessly presented? Why is the asylum "infamous"? If there isn't time or ink to explore that infamy why mention it?
The line about the doctor, the patient and the female is important. Is it important enough for two lines? Important enough to clearly differentiate which "he" is speaking immediately for the reader's benefit? Withholding information is a useful tool for writing. When too much is held back for too long it works against the writing. The surprise in the box may not be worth the effort to unwrap it.

Thanks for the review and for the 3 S's:)
Welcome back, Neetha. Hope you had a good Christmas. Although short (and I believe it could work as a short story when expanded) I like the premise.
There are a couple of little things to address. The confusion with the doctor in the hospital. It sounds like he is the one talking to your ghost and how would the doctor 'see' an invisible woman?
Perhaps he needs a name.
The last line needs a bit of work i.e.
“Tomorrow I’ll be with you!” he promised as she made her way back towards her grave...her home.
Good work.

Very shocking, deeply sad and very descriptive. You managed well to express the character's feelings.
