My Happy Place

A Story by Emily Mac

My first story, hope you like it!

One press, one movement. That's all it took and I could be released. Released from the chains wrapped around my wrists and ankles. One action, one bullet and I could find my happy place. I could be released from the pain, the screaming constantly pulsing around my head. The hammer hitting down on my heart could be stopped. The tears running down my face could be dried and everything I've lost could be found. I could stop everything that's going wrong, all I had to make was one press, one movement.

The second sentence - "took" isn't the right tense for the rest of your monologue. It IS a dramatic "moment".

Happy interesting choice of title. You portrayed the girl in a desperate situation with the few words you used. But with those words you gave me the visons of a woman strapped in one of those rooms you see in the moves. One chance...choose. this piece feels let it could be a prologue to a great story of cat and mouse.

Good work.

I am amazed! You are so creative. You got to say… it creates a LOT of suspense! I never really found death as a happy place. But this short story sent the message that people have different ways of seeing life. WELL DONE!!

A powerful paragraph.

But if that is your 'Happy Place', I hate to think what the 'Sad Place' is like.

I like the suspense and the cliffhanging ending.
Will they or won't they?
This is a self-talk featuring the pros - would there be a balancing self-talk full of cons - would they live long enough...?
Nicely done.
