A Smile at The End

She walked…here and there. She didn’t know where to head. She looked back. She thought there was someone following her. But, there was nobody. She stopped, took her mobile phone from the purse, dialed some numbers and pushed the green phone picture. She waited. Nobody answered her.

She started walking again. It’s getting darker and darker. She didn’t even see the moon, seemed like it was fully covered by the clouds, hiding itself. It was somehow scary.

She knew, she had made a wrong decision. She shouldn’t have been getting out of the house, she should have just stayed and kept her mouth shout. But, she couldn’t help it.

It was typically her. She always wanted to tell the truth, even if it hurt. Her father would know anyway that her mother had been spending time with that man even if she didn’t let the cat out of the bag.

And now, alone in this absolute obscurity, she regretted her decision.

Her regret grew bigger and bigger when she looked back and found that a man—or two, she wasn’t certain, she was too afraid to look back one more time to ensure—was following her from such a short distance.

Then, she felt hands on her back, on her mouth, on her eyes. She screamed, out loud…but even she couldn’t hear any voice coming out of her sealed mouth. She couldn’t see anything, couldn’t hear anything, anymore.

She knew it was the end, and, she smiled

I like this one a lot better. A lot of information squeezed into a very short story. I like the ending, it makes me wonder weather it could be the father?...

Wow,the story's short, but I can feel the terror in her heart that later becomes her bitter-sweet ending. So intense!

It is indeed very gripping and fascinating, to say the least. I can write an entire review on this story.

Hello, I loved your writing and actually, I do something similar to yours but mine is more focused on stories based on songs. If you're interested in reading, here I leave my link: www.libaryschweinsteiger.blogspot.com
BTW, it's in spanish, but I hope I can write something in english soon.

Your ideas are nice but you write incomplete stories.. it frustrates a little not knowing the whole purpose of the story..
