Julia’s find 2

‘What a horrible nightmare’ was Julia’s first thought as she woke up. The next thought was why she was fully clothed. She always slept naked.

‘wait a minute, I am not in my bed either’ she looked around fully alert.

Then it hit her. Hard.

She scrambled to her feet and to her horror, she saw the disemboweled body still lying splayed on the bed with maggot coming out from every available orifice and flies hovering.

A wave of nausea washed over her and she doubled over and vomited on the carpet.

‘Oh God, this is really happening’

She began to feel panic rising from within and the room seemed to be closing in on her and suffocating.

She turned and ran out of the room and into the hallway. Her breathing came in short gasps and tears burned at the back of her eyes.

She leaned on the wall to her right and allowed the tears to flow freely. When her legs became too weak to support her, she slumped to the ground and curled up against the wall and cried softly in the dark.

The night air was shattered by the ringing of her phone. She jumped at the sound before relaxing and fishing for the phone on the floor where she had dropped it.

One look at the screen and her blood curdled with fright. She stared unblinking at the name and image on the screen. It was Tony calling.

Several thoughts rushed through her brain in the space of the minute it took for the call to be diverted to her voice mail. Could it be that the person she had seen in the room wasn’t Tony? She felt a flicker of hope at the thought. It had been dark, her eyes could had played a trick on her.

But if that was so, who then was lying dead in Tony’s room? The relief she felt dissipated as the other alternative hit. Maybe Tony had murdered someone and that was why he had been refusing to pick his calls. He had gone into hiding.

The phone started to ring again. She contemplated answering but thought the better of it. She needed to think things through.

She stared at the face smiling up at her, the innocence of the features and she knew he was not capable of murder.

‘That means you are accepting that it really is him lying there…’ she couldn’t bring herself to finish the thought.

‘so if he is really dead, who then is calling me?’

The phone was ringing again. She suppressed the urge to slide her hands across the green button on the screen. Not yet.

Was this a robbery turned brutal? It couldn’t be, nothing had been amiss in the living room. Whoever heard of a robber killing over a Samsung Galaxy S3?

Was Tony in a cult? Did he have an altercation with someone who decided to kill him? Is his assassin laying in wait for her? Maybe they had been stalking the house and waiting to see who would find the body….too many maybes!

The phone rang the fourth time. She sighed and decided to pick the call. She needed to know, she would go bonkers trying to figure it out in her head.

“Hello” she said into the phone, her was tentative.

“Hello Julia, why are you running away from me?” it was that voice again, like blowing air through a lead pipe.

An image of a maggot ridden face, with a grimace on, and head dangling held by skin and tiny muscle came flashing into her mind’s eye.

She shrieked.

    This is really spine-chilling and the plot thickens! Imagine passing out to escape the grim and gripping realities of an horrific find, only to be re-awakened from such a reverie and continue on, living through the nightmare! That’s ‘scaryfying’! Plus, the part Julia’s phone rang out, revealing the Caller ID as Tony was creepy to say the least! That’s just like a scene from a Hollywood Blockbuster Horror Flick, so well conceived! I love the lingo and your imaginative prowess, top notch! Kudos!

    Nothing’s what it seems! Are all of these unfortunate incidences really taking place?! Or is it Julia’s state of mind?! Or perhaps, she’s just having a nightmare and yet to fully snap outta it?! Keeping ma fingers crossed in great anticipation of unraveling all of these mysteries! A terrific job you’re doing here Doc, this is a great, very interesting read! Wow! LOL

      wow…her head is spinning with possibilities…
      I like it when your mind goes into overdrive Yemie…so which of these do you really think is happening?

      1. Yemie says:

        What I think is happening right off the top of ma head’s……..Nah! ‘Forgit’ it! That would be spoiling the fun and letting the cat right outta the bag! Where’s the fun in that?! Pray tell! ROTFLMAO!

        Go on ahead and write your story Doc, and for all we know; Julia and Tony may as well just be actors in a well scripted film being shot on a location, with behind the scenes hands and footages! That pretty much sounds like a possibility to me but then again; what do I really know, right?! *shrugs* LMAO!
