Chapter 1: Dream in a Nightmare

Chapter 1: Dream in a Nightmare

A Chapter by Speak in Silence

I feel his hands around my neck and intently the smell of chloroform fills my mouth and nose, I would know that smell anywhere, Before I can react  my eyes start to blur, heart rate starting to increase. Within seconds the world goes black.

I'm running, but can't go anywhere. He's coming closer, but I can't move. My feet are melted to the floor it seems. I can hear the dreadful clanging of shoes coming down the stairs. I look around for something to grab on to. Nothing. I start pulling at my shoes. My hands, they are black. What's wrong with my hands! From fear I pull up on my feet. I'm free. He is right behind me, yelling harsh words. I can't understand him. "Don't look back" I think. No. I have to see what I'm up against. I turn to see no one, just the shadows of darkness. My feet stop me. The darkness engulfs me, squeezing the air out of my body. I'm gasping for air.

I awake screaming. Feeling the sweat on my face and chest. I try to reach my arm up, only to find my hands bonded to the bed.

No prob:)
A gripping introduction that enraptures the audience and lures them into the story. As with any beginning, its duty is to make the audience want to read the next instalment - and it does that admirably. The fear is palpable, the emotions are very much real - ... and I am going to click 'next chapter' now.

Thank you, I hope you like the next 2 chapters, I haven't got around to making the 4th one yet but I.. read more
Solid piece except for how you described "clanging of shoes coming down the stairs". I think you mean clacking, like dress shoes sound against pavement? And thinking outside the box, I'm liking it!
