Hell, I'm alone here in this... something, there was that creepy little girl with messy hair and now that eerie sound that comes out of the fog! It's like I'm in some horror movie!

I feel my sweat penetrates the skin ... this is not funny. It is not funny at all.

- Hey! Anybody ?!

Huh? Someone is there. A voice out of the fog!

Someone is there. I'm sure of it.

- Heeeey !!

Ha! I hear someone!

Coming from behind me. Someone else was there. What a relief ...

I ran towards the source of the voice which I heard earlier. I hear footsteps.

Ha! I see some kind of light! It's faint, but I still see it. If there is light, it is obvious that there is a source of that light, which means that there is SOMEONE there! That means that I'm not alone here... I paced a little towards the light source and the source of the steps.

Whoever it is, it runs as if all hell is chasing it ...

Finally, steps have stopped. That faint light from just before is no longer visible.

There's a sidewalk in front of me, and I bet that is the sound of footsteps was coming from here.

Hm?

Bench again. It seems that something is on the bench...

I approached very close to the bench ... someone is lying on it ... it seems like....

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!!

T ... t ... body!

The corpse is on the bench!

A dead man ... ... although judging by the body ... I would say it is a case of a young man ... a teenager ... what could happen ...?!

What the hell is a DEAD BODY DOING ON THE BENCH... ?? !!

.....

I want out of here, I want OUT OF HEREEEEEE !!!

What the hell is going on here? !!

This corpse terrifies me ... I do not know why ...

Disgusting ... looks ... looks like it was ... kinda dry ... as if they were bodily fluids literally sucked out of it ....!

A voice in my head.. like a whisper.. that terrible feeling like...IT did that to him...IT... that SOMETHING... that made that sound ... Something... from the mist ... !!

Clothes on the body are unrecognizable ... like ... as if it was burnt...

The body is left lying on the bench in an unknown and deserted place, a place.A strange, empty place. Except for me and this dried dead body.

I gotta get out of here. I have to! I have to get back ... I'll go back to where I came from. Let's see, the way is ...

Again that terrible sound.

This time it is close. Very close.

Noooo !!!

Leave me !!

Leave me... alone!! Go away!!

GO... AWAYYY!!

G...o...

I gotta get out of here, from this awful place, from the carcass, away from that sound, I gotta!

I have to escape ....

I have ...

...

I do not know how long I ran, but I can't any longer. I'm dead tired ... I have to stop.

I'm so hungry. And tired.

What I would now give for a pizza with sausage and cheese ... lots of cheese .. I can imagine it. So hot and juicy ... that literally melts in your mouth while you eat it ...

But... where is all that is familiar? Where is a normal place where a man can sit, take a rest, maybe buy a drink... and some hot meal...  And to just enjoy in those small joys...

Where is that place?

Where are all those nosy people I despised, with their gibberish talk about weather, or politics, or economy, or expensive this, cheap that?

I miss that.

Oh man... I'm really lost.

...

Ohhhhh .....

My head ...

...

How long have I been out ..?

...

The night.

My head really hurts a lot.

What time is it?

Mobile phone is not working. I think the battery is empty.

Hm ...

It's so quiet.

The bench was more comfortable than it seemed ... Should I call someone? It's no use ... I doubt that anyone will respond.

...

I never paid any attention to the fact that all the houses look the same here. Only differ in color. But comparing by the side they were were almost - identical.  

On the grass there wasn't dew. Not a drop.

Man ... I'm totally lost.

I want out of here.

What a strange dream ...

What a strange place ...

Strange place ...

It's so dark. It's dark and foggy. I hear noises in the distance ... nothing like I've ever heard.

The sound of sirens ...?

Traffic accident ??

This means that here there are other people!

But I can not ... I can not reveal exactly where the sound comes from.

It's getting stronger.

Now ... it's not like a sound of an ambulance siren ... more like ... like the sound of air raid siren.

More powerful than before.

Aaaaah .... my head ....

The sound of sirens .... pushing ...

It pierces my ears ..... it's so loud ... louder ...

I can not stand .....

My head .....

Aaaaaaaah ........

I can not ....

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...

Where am I?

It is dark.

I woke up. It is still night.

The blood is dripping from my nose.

My head ... it hurts ...

What time is it ...?

I dreamed again the same dream ...

I can not fall asleep.

It is still ... night.

 

 

THE... END?
