Five years ago, I was in a car wreck and I had hit my head hard enough where I started to have hallucinations. At the beginning it was simple things like hearing whispers in my ears. Then it started to get worse but we will get into that later for now we’ll start before the car crash. So, I was just driving down the road and all of a sudden a car just came speeding down the wrong side of the road. Then, everything went pitch black. When I woke up like three or four hours later I was in a hospital. Then, everything went black again.

The next time I woke up I was in the morgue, alive. I started yelling but I heard nothing in return. The fires turned on and I started burning but never died like this is a dream or more like a nightmare that felt real. That was when I remembered there was no one in the car with me and it was a private road so then, who took me to the hospital? Then I woke up and I was still in the car and only thought it was a nightmare. I was on my way to my friend’s house and the car that hit me wasn’t his.

My luck just struck me, he came down the road and saw me beside the road. He said, “How did you wreck have you been drinking?”. I responded, “No, a car just came flying toward me”. He said, “Well, who cleaned out the other car and for the record I am the only one who lives here”. He took me to the hospital and called a tow truck to clean my car crash. OK, back to where I left of. After a few months I thought the hallucinations were over but then they started back again but worser. I started seeing ghostly figures in hallways and my backyard even in the woods.

I then called a meeting in for a therapist for seeing things. All he said was that it should stop in a couple of months, if it don’t drive me mad before then. So, I waited and waited but it didn’t stop. So, I tried to ignore them but all that done was cause more hallucinations. So, I went out-of-the-way and bought another house to see if that would stop them. It stopped for a while but a year or so later they started again. I decided to just live with them. It isn’t like they are going to stop anytime soon. Then the demons started. First, arms started to come out of the wall. I am beginning to wonder if these aren’t hallucinations that they are real. Second, I hear groans coming from everywhere. Third, I start seeing dead bodies. Fourth, I hear loud sirens coming from everywhere. I need to do something about this. But I can’t do anything about it right now. I am going to have to wait till I can learn how. Oh no, I hear something getting closer. I got down and went quiet hoping it would pass and it finally did.

I got up and quietly opened the door and looked around. It was gone, whatever it was. I thought about putting crucifix symbols on the walls. I went downstairs and got paint and paintbrushes and painted them. It seemed to work but I am not sure. Nothing seems to work with these things. At that moment I heard boom… clang… boom… clang like boots stomping and chains dragging. There is a closet near me so I decided to hide in there. That’s when I saw what was making the noise. It was a big figure like a bear standing up and I was right it was carrying a chain. I held my breath hoping it didn’t hear me. It looked in my direction like it noticed me. It started walking my direction but another noise distracted it and it started running. Maybe the crucifixes didn’t work. It gave me enough time to escape. I decided to look around the house to see where it was because it was silent. It wasn’t to be seen anywhere and I have no basement or attic. So I decided to calm down and go back to sleep.

Author’s Note: I was working on this for way too long it was going to be a mini series but I decided to end it here thanks for reading!

    Ill be honest, I didn’t feel like I was reading a story. More of an account of something that happens to you with you not having enough time to tell the entire story. There was not enough detail it. I really see potential though. It looks like a good first draft to something that needs or should have more. I enjoyed reading it though, I love people who write it is a way to express themselves and I dont think you should stop by any means. Thanks for sharing your story.

    A good premise, but the very poor grammar and spelling let it down badly. Chunks don’t make sense, and sentences run on and appear crowded and rushed. A promising start, but the tale deteriorates into a chaotic plotline and storyline. Your original idea of continuing this would have been better, to have taken your time, expanded and edited, and produced a second episode (or more) would have sorted this piece out, and got your ideas across to your readers better. Please keep on writing.

      I also kind of ran out of ideas for it but thinks for reading

        Thanks*. Perhaps you could’ve written a better ending too?

    I liked the plot of the story but the wording seems jumbled to a degree that it was hard to keep up, just keep working on it, keep writing and soon you’ll be writing a lot better
