Join Us

Become one of us...

I hear them whisper to me.

Join us, they say. Become one of us

Their fingers brush against my skin, and I shiver, wishing I had brought a jacket with me to protect me from this literal nightmare.

We know you, they whisper. We know who you are and what you want.

One of them grabs my hand. I scream. I scream and I scream, and then it lets me go, and I’m so cold.

So very cold, all the heat’s gone, and where’s all the light?

JOIN US! They scream now. SUFFER LIKE US!

I want to leave, I want to leave, but I have no where to go, I can’t run away, they will follow me wherever I go…

The whispers grow louder and louder and it gets colder and colder, and then I’m frozen and floating, and I’m dying and I’m living and…

Join us, I whisper to our newest victim. Become one of us.

The End
