The Unseen Horror Lurking in the Shadows of the Morgue

By Vivekananthan VellaichamyPublished about a year ago 3 min read

Dr. Anna Rogers had performed countless autopsies over the years, but she never felt quite as uneasy as she did when she was about to begin her latest one. The body of a young woman, barely out of her teens, lay before her, still and silent on the stainless steel table. Her skin was a sickly shade of blue, her eyes open and glassy.

Anna had been warned about this case before she even entered the morgue. The girl had died under mysterious circumstances, and the police had been unable to determine the cause of death. It was up to Anna to find the answers they were looking for.

As she began to make the first incision, she felt a shiver run down her spine. She couldn't shake the feeling that something was watching her, something malevolent and hungry. She tried to push the feeling aside, focusing on the task at hand, but it only grew stronger as the autopsy went on.

As she cut deeper into the body, she noticed something strange. The girl's organs were in a state of complete disarray, as if they had been twisted and torn apart from the inside. It was unlike anything Anna had ever seen before. Her mind raced with the possibilities - a rare disease, a strange toxin, a new type of parasite. But she couldn't shake the feeling that there was something more to it, something supernatural.

As the hours wore on, Anna became increasingly unnerved. She began to hear whispers in the shadows of the morgue, voices that seemed to come from nowhere. And the feeling of being watched grew stronger and stronger, until she was afraid to turn her back on the body.

It wasn't until she was cleaning up after the autopsy that she saw it. A figure, standing in the corner of the room, just beyond the edge of her vision. It was tall and thin, with long arms and fingers that seemed to stretch out towards her. Its face was obscured by darkness, but she could feel its gaze upon her.

Anna tried to run, but her legs wouldn't move. She was frozen in place, staring at the creature as it began to move towards her. She could feel its breath on her neck, cold and damp, and she knew that she was about to die.

But then, just as suddenly as it had appeared, the creature was gone. Anna stumbled backwards, her heart racing, her mind reeling. She knew what she had seen, but she also knew that no one would believe her.

From that day on, Anna was never the same. She became obsessed with the supernatural, pouring over books and articles in an attempt to understand what she had experienced. But no matter how hard she tried, she couldn't shake the feeling that the creature was still out there, watching and waiting for her.

Years later, Anna would die alone in her apartment, surrounded by books and notes and articles. The cause of death was unknown, but those who found her body said that there was a look of terror frozen on her face, as if she had seen something that no one else could see.

And to this day, the morgue where she had performed the autopsy is said to be haunted by a strange, otherworldly presence - the same creature that had stalked Anna in the final moments of her life. Some say that it's the vengeful spirit of the girl whose autopsy she had performed, seeking justice for her untimely death. Others believe that it's a manifestation of Anna's own fears and guilt, coming back to haunt her in the afterlife.

But no matter what the true source of the haunting may be, one thing is certain - those who dare to enter the morgue after dark do so at their own peril.
