Woman In Black

This is a piece of writing I had to do for an English assessment, so I thought I'd upload it to Movellas and see what everyone thought of it. My task was to watch a short clip from the film and write my own version of it. I've never really written horror so if its rubbish that's the reason why

2. Asleep in the manor

My eyelids closed against my will as my hand released the photo and it fell onto the desk in front of me. My weary mind was sucked into blackness...

 

Suddenly, eveything was lit. I was standing in a brick room, with candles all around me. There was nothing else in front of me- no paint on the walls, no furniture- but I could sense someone behind me. I turned around. A single, smiling woman was standing behind me. My late wife.

I wanted to run into her arms, but my feet wouldn't move. All I could do was give her an answering smile.

But her smile changed.

It was no longer warm nor pleasant. It became triumphant and sly. She started to move towards me, but that wasn't what filled me with a sudden, silent horror.

She became a rotten corpse, her dress which had once been white changed to dark and inky as she drew nearer and nearer, and soon I knew who she really was

Her hand moved in front of her, reaching towards me and my mouth opened in a scream of fear. She seemd to grow in size, towering above me before grabbing me with icy-cold hands.

Then she was gone.
