You are in a White Room: Part Seven


This post is a part of the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop. Check out the link for more writers or to participate yourself!

What follows is the seventh installment of my ten part horror serial. Click Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, or Part VI, if you need to catch up. And, after you’re done reading this, scroll down to check out my post from earlier this week.

Happy New Year!



You are in a white room. Outside is a white hallway. The hallway, you now know, leads in a square with each corridor containing one door, and the doors all lead to identical rooms. Each room has tally marks scratched into the wall, but the marks reflect different numbers. You cannot remember the numbers you wrote on your wall. You don’t know which is your room and this, for some reason, brings you to tears. In the hallway is one poster repeating thirty-two times. It tells you that you should not have gone to work today. You do not know who you are. And now that you have lost track of your white room, you do not even know how many times you have woken up.

Stay tuned for Part VIII next week!

  1. I knew this was a horrible place! Tally marks on the wall are never a good sign. This is super-creepy without anything overtly terrible happening yet. Nice job!


  2. Just keeps on keeping on with the horror and the uncertainty and I can’t stop reading this excellent spooky story!

    Very curious about that poster. Is it implying a wrong decision led to this predicament?


  4. This is the best–or worst–kind of horror, where something horrible is happening, but you don’t quite know what, or when, or why…


  5. I agree with Caitlin. The reader is bewiched ,baffled, and bewildered. Also spooked.


  6. ED Martin says:

    The repetition makes this so much creepier!

    Sounds like one of those bad dreams you simply can’t wake up from.
