Flight

The flight of stairs lead him to the bolted room, the lock rusted with time. With a smart turn of the keys, the door widened, opening a darkness that smelt of memories, sweet and pungent.

Jacob lazily walked towards the wooden casket, and with the power that resided in his bulging biceps, removed the lid on the top.

Her body lay there, barren of soul, eyes protruding in fear of the blood sucking creature that trapped her in a world, that rotated between the fake realities of life and death.

He let out a devilish laugh, and pulled her lifeless form out of the casket.

  5. I remember looking at my dead baby for the very last time before she was cremated ... I cracked up laughing ... terrible thing to say ... then I sat there ... just sat there ... don't know where ...but I remember rocking back and forth ... which took the pain away ... as long as was rocking, I was okay ... I still rock like that to this day ...
