Happy Halloween! Here's a scary story for you.
Content Warnings for memory loss, paranoia, and panic. Implied claustrophobia and kidnapping.
This story was written, produced, and performed by Tal Minear.
I wake with a start in an unfamiliar room. Small, but clean and tidy. Textured metal walls. A locked door. That’s… concerning. A note on the calendar simply says “day one.” I can’t have been here long, but I can’t remember why I’m here.
Food slides in through a slat in the door. My stomach rumbles. Is it safe to eat? I don’t know. There’s so little I know. This room has secrets. What have these walls seen?
The texture is odd. Patterned scratches…? Tally marks.
Tally marks? Oh no.
Metal flakes under my nails. Oh no.
Oh-no-oh-no-oh-no. Five ten twenty fifty multiply by five it is not day one IT IS NOT DAY ONE
I scream. It echoes. Door opens. Not day one. Hands pinned, force fed, not day one. Room spins, world darkens, not day one. Not... day... one… … …
I wake with a start in an unfamiliar room.
