Where can I Run?

four people, four stories, one city : Portland
The girl who seemed unbreakable, broke
Stacy is in hell, she is now a former shell of herself, slowly breaking
The girl who seemed so strong, crumbled
Grace is the only survivor of one poltergeist attack, finally crumbles, no family, no friends
The girl who always laughed it off, cried
Abby is the girl who was 'happy, go lucky', Her friend was found on the roof and in chunks
The girl who never stopped trying, finally gave up
Paisley is kidnapped, That was over a year ago
*this is a competition piece*


1. Stacy

The girl who seemed unbreakable, broke


It had been around what, forty years? In hell. I thought, Damn. I need to get out, now.I tried to get a moments peace, but I knew that that would never happen. I was huddled in the corner of my cage, staring unseeingly.The heat scalding my skin. I listening to the distant screams, fully aware that mine would soon join the nightmare chorus.


Footsteps sounded and I tried to shrink more into myself. I slowly tensed, unable to run, to escape. I dont even know where to begin to get out. I knew that the torture began again when I felt my skin peeling off of my bones. This time however, I couldn't even muster up a whimper. I felt the disappointment when the cuts became quicker, sharper, deeper.The pain wasn't real. I uncurled myself and lay down on my side, barely acknowledging the pain coursing through my body and the smell of my own blood in my nostrils.




The last cut. Then the pain had somehow become real, grounded. My hands hovering over my body, finding the various slices and bone. When my hands became too wet with my blood, I dropped them to my side and wept, silent tears creating tracks in the dried blood that was crusted to my face. When the pain became overwhelming, my breathing hitched and I slipped into unconsciousness for the first time in nearly forty years.
