A lonely place

By Oliver Miller, year 7, Grammar School

One minute I was conscious, the next I wasn’t.

I don’t know what happened to me, or why I’m here. I guess someone just took me to this world of seclusion. This everlasting hall of silence. I don’t know why I was so scared. I had to be alone, right? Yet, my own echoing footsteps sounded like others oncoming ones. All I could see was a long sheet of grey, slowly transitioning into white. Nothing could get more spine chilling than this remote, abandoned auditorium. I guessed the only thing I could do was walk forward, further on into this traumatic room. On and on I went, still seeing nothing, occasionally seeing hallucinations in the dark shadows of the hall.

Barely audible, I tried to stop breathing, trying to be able to hear it, but I couldn’t. And then, as though by magic, fog, so thick you could cut it with a knife, engulfed me. I was never heard from again. Until now...
