You Are in a White Room: Part Eight


Here’s another installment of my ten-part horror serial. As usual, this post is in conjunction with the Weekend Writing Warriors blog hop. To all those at WeWriWa, thanks for stopping by!

If you have missed anything, here are the links for Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV, Part V, Part VI, and Part VII.



You are angry. You do not know who you are and you do not know if you have a job or if you went to work today or any other day, as the posters seem to imply. You begin to tear the posters down. When you pull the last poster off the wall, you discover, with another horrifying squeeze of your chest, that it hides a small, square hole. You do not care what you will find as you climb into the dark hole and head toward the white light at the end of it. You do not care that your knees and palms are being bloodied. The tunnel heads into the center of the square made by the hallways, but at the same time, you realize it is too long to head into the center of the square made by the hallways. You want out. You are angry. You don’t know who you are.

Join me back here next week for Part IX.

  1. Nooo! Don’t climb into small holes hidden by posters. I’m sure this won’t end well.


  2. Intriguing. I wonder where will it lead?


  3. Outstanding. You’ve got me hooked, for sure. So…if his senses tell him (or her) that he’s heading toward the center of the hallways, yet it’s too long for that, where the heck does the hole lead? And Christina nailed it, lol. Don’t climb into small holes hidden by posters…

    Man, the surreal suspense is killing me here!

    You know, this would probably make a pretty cool flash animation when finished. Just saying.


  5. Even though it seems like a bad horror movie move–go into the creepy tunnel, what’s the worst that could happen?–I’d probably make it, too. There’s something very disturbing about the blank space and the vague threats.

    This sounds like the dream that dream analysis pegs as a fantasy about death. Small black hole that leads away from the white world, light at the end of it.


  7. Still stark and terrifying! Another well done snippet!

    I am so not missing the next post , Jessica! Angry is better than scared – i think!

    Wow, intense! And well done in second person. I’ve only read one other story in that POV. 🙂
