Norhtern Slave

Norhtern Slave

A Story by Just Me
"

A short and serious story. A long and serious topic.

"

                The whip slashes across my back. I am a slave, sold by my parents for a profit they did not need. I am from a rich, white family sold because of greed. This life, worse than that of a black slave on a cotton plantation. My body, covered by scars from old wounds and the scabs of new ones. The pain unbearable, made even worse by the bitter cold of the north.

                Every night I pray to my Lord to end this pain. To show me mercy in the form of death. I am on the verge. I can feel it. As the whip strikes again, I feel my body go numb. My brain is slowing, preparing for the final stage of life. Death. I feel warm. There is no pain. Just a soothing light. I know my prayers heve been answered. I am dead.

I don't understand why this would be insulting. I liked it. A tough story, but well written.

I would give alittle more details about what her life was like. Flash-backs might be helpful. :D

But I loved it! Very heart breaking. I absolutely love it. I wanna know more!

Welcome
I don't see anything offensive here.. if nothing else, it is honouring those slaves who died from too much torture. Excellent job!

Short. Elegant. Filled with meaning, pain, and a hope for something no one should have to look forward to. I would take out the last line, though. I think it breaks up the elegance of this piece with unneeded repetition. Other than that, I think this piece is absolutely awesome! Great job.
