End of Friend's Story

Basically my friend had to write a short story on a Romeo and Juliet quote (as you can see) about a girl who saw a magpie, ran over a black cat and heard static on the radio. She couldn't think of an ending so I had a go at writing one for her. (The first two sentences were hers.)

I heard another click. The lights went out. The grinning mouth of darkness swallowed me in one bite and closed with a snap, shutting the thin rim of hope and light out and away. The air became a vacuum, and oblivion sucked at my skin. My limbs swung uselessly and my head seemed to detach itself from my body. The gaping nothingness tugged at my eyeballs and in my disorientated state I saw another gateway coming at me through the blackness. If the oblivion was dark, this gateway was death itself. And the gateway was in the shape of a black cat.

Words flashed through my brain, and I processed them slowly, aware of my body being trussed and tied and shredded apart, as one of my teeth had once been ripped out using a slamming door and a noose of string.

“Affliction is enamoured of thy parts and thou art wedded to calamity.”

The remnants of what had once been my dear body passed the event horizon, and I felt spagettification begin.

Death and doom was my destiny. Magpie, black cat, static radio. Take heed from these warnings and prepare yourself for the time when Fate’s Eye sees your weakness.

I died in the car crash. End of story.

The End
