The Fear of Death while Dead.
I knew my time was up, as I slowly began to sink away, using my last breath, to tell my close friend and colleague Sam to get away.
While struggling to keep my eyes open, I see Sam being shot between the eyes and fall down straight in front of me, all I could hear was “where is the DNA sample strip and where is all the documents to go with it”, but alas Sam with his last words shouted “you will never find them nor will you ever know the secret, burn in hell” at that moment I heard another shot. My eyes are closed.
I myself was now dead, yet I could hear the words in a distance “You Fool why did you kill him, we needed him alive”.
These people who took my life and that of Sam's; the people were NOT human as I’m recalling while drifting away, they are Vampires, looking for the secret and the DNA to allow them to roam and rule by Day and Night, which they were gathering over years if not centuries; with only me and Sam standing in their way.
Again in the distance I hear “There’s only one way left to extract the information” wailed the Lead Vampire “I have to carry out the fusion between me and his heart, to extract the information”.
I laid their in between worlds, when I felt a cold, yet a warm hand hovering over my heart a cold/warm breath and a griping of my heart, I’m confused, I was dead; yet I felt a fear of death while dead, WHY? It makes no sense; I feared my heart being ripped out of me and the fear of the excruciating pain that I may feel. ‘I’m dead’ so WHY am I petrified, it makes no sense, but could I let my friend down who gave his life to save this secret, which I myself have safe guarded too.
I did not want to be the one who gave these foul critters the advantage, WHY should I let this fear overwhelm me, I’m dead, yet for somehow I could see the fangs coming out and my heart being torn out of me, it feels as if my heart is beating faster, Why can’t I relax or let go, I’m sure I’ve done my time in this world, My heart is beating faster and faster, I’m trying to shout and move away or push away, yet I have no feeling or movement in my body.
Let this nightmare end, let it go away, let this fear of Death while Dead disappear.
AM I DEAD OR AM I SLEEPING, LET THIS END, LET THIS NIGHTMARE END.
