Dark Days

Dark Days

I sit up with a jolt, disorientated.

If it weren’t for the sensation of my eyelids coming together to shield my eyes, I would not be able to determine whether or not they were open. The inky blackness presses In from all angles, suffocating me. You’d think after all the time I’ve spent trapped in this murky prison I’d have adjusted. No, it’s still quite a shock to be released from the depths of unconsciousness, only to be greeted by an infinite plain of shadows.

I glance around, looking for something, some object from long ago that will reassure me. I need to know some of my old world still remains.

Nothing.

I’m alone.

A white light flashes to the left of my… vision, if it can be called that. I ignore it. I’ve come to realise that it’s only purpose is to generate hope of this blanket of soot lifting.

I hear a creak — a door opening.

“Cath, you’d better get up. We’re leaving for Granddad’s house in about an hour. Start getting ready, ok?”

I sigh. “Yeah, alright, mum.”

“Oh, and your cane and shades are in the kitchen, near the bird cage.”

I sigh again.

I really enjoyed the concept, especially with my background. The adjectives you used in the beginning really threw me into the story, maybe you could continue that style to the end, you kinda lost me at the ending, with the loss of description. Overall, amazing job, 8/10.

Great food for thought piece
. Establishing extremes to reveal a situation few suffer. I love stuff that makes you think like that. Simplicity at its finest.

Yes, I know how the narrator feels. I have Nyctophobia and [spoiler]being blind[/spoiler] means a terrifying life to me.

For those whom claim this is not a creepypasta, or creepy at all, re-read it and really feel the pasta. Really imagine your life as being blind, and be the character. Living in only darkness for the rest of your life, and never being able to change that is honestly a CREEPY concept to grasp. 5/5. Bravo!
I guess you have to have a certain type of mindset to agree that this does indeed belong here.

Very good. I liked this pasta quite a lot. The way you [spoiler]begin to describe it as a nightmare, and turn it into blindness,[/spoiler] really emphasis the true horror of living like this

I wonder if all blind people live like this? In a constant nightmare.
