He doesn't know that he's dead


By Vishnu PriyaPublished about a year ago 2 min read

In the depths of a stormy night, David found himself alone, huddled on the couch in his dimly lit room. The eerie glow of the laptop screen flickered, casting haunting shadows across the walls. As he immersed himself in his favourite program, an unsettling feeling crept over him, and he began to hear chilling whispers echoing through the empty halls of his home.

Compelled to investigate, David ventured downstairs, only to find his mother engaged in an unsettling conversation with ghostly figures, her words distorted and unnatural. His father, too, was engaged in an eerie exchange with his neighbours, their faces contorted with a sinister gleam. Bewildered and unnerved, David questioned the peculiar behaviour of his family, unable to fathom the nightmarish reality that awaited him.

Suddenly, the atmosphere in his room transformed into an abyssal void, as if he had been transported to the depths of a malevolent sea. Panic gripped his heart, suffocating him, until he awoke with a jolt. Beads of cold sweat coated his brow as he dismissed the encounter as a mere nightmare. But the horrors that unfolded before him defied reason.

Before his disbelieving eyes, a shadowy figure emerged, forcefully pushing him into a bottomless expanse of water. Desperate to escape, David fought against the unseen assailant, his screams of terror echoing through the depths. Abruptly, he woke once more, gasping for air. The cycle of dread and despair seemed unending, as though he was trapped in a cruel, recurring nightmare, condemned to relive his watery demise.

Fearful and disoriented, David descended the stairs, seeking solace and protection from his mother. Yet, her voice remained silent, unresponsive to his desperate calls. Frantically, he sought his father, pouring out his terrifying ordeal, only to be met with an unnerving silence. His father, in a trance-like state, joined david's friends without acknowledging David's anguish, further fuelling the young man's mounting terror.

Summoning all his courage, David pleaded with his friends to accompany him back to his room. Desperate for validation, he urged them to witness the horrors that plagued his very existence. In a surreal turn of events, they obliged, only to become engrossed in a mundane game of PlayStation, their laughter echoing hollowly through the room.

Left bewildered and abandoned, David ventured to the sanctuary of the bathroom, seeking a moment of respite. But the sight that greeted him shattered his fragile sanity. Reflected in the mirror was his lifeless body, submerged in the bathtub, a chilling testimony to his tragic demise. “Yes, He’s dead!”. A haunting realization washed over him as he sensed a malevolent presence, a wicked grin etched upon the face of the figure who had orchestrated his untimely demise.

The intertwining narratives had finally converged. The first part, a sinister prelude to his funeral, had unfolded before his very eyes. The second part, the sinister truth of his demise, had unfolded in the depths of his subconscious. A wave of sorrow engulfed him as he realized he would never gaze upon the face of his tormentor, forever shrouded in darkness.

In this twisted tale, the boundaries between dreams and reality dissolved, leaving behind a haunting legacy of unanswered questions and a restless soul condemned to eternal darkness.
