I heard the dog whine. I could see his shadow pacing back and forth through the crack under the door. I chuckled to myself. If only he had thumbs he could open the door and save my life. But he didn’t have thumbs. He was a dog. I felt a puddle of wetness spreading out all around me. The viscous liquid was hot and sticky. Somewhere in my mind, I knew what it was, but I couldn’t recall the word. I tried desperately to remember how I ended up on the floor here, in this room, my clothes soaked. I didn’t feel any pain apart from a profound frustration that I knew it was beyond my power to leave this place. I resented the dog for having the power to move freely. I tried to shout to the dog, but all that came out was a hoarse croak.

Suddenly there was a commotion all around me. The dog quickly skittered away from the other side of the door. The world flooded with a bright, white light, and then my mind struggled to comprehend what I saw…. I awake in a pure white room; I do not know where I am or what I am doing here. I go to get up but realize that I am in a straight jacket. I start to scream.

“Hello!! Anyone!? Where am I? Please help me!”

I sit in silence as the door suddenly opens. I see a tall, blonde lady in heels and a pant suit. I think to myself about the night before; I’m the one who started to flood my house, but how could anyone know it was me? I mean I’m suicidal, but I thought only I knew that. What could this lady want from me? I think I’m good.

“Hey, I’m Sheryl I’m going to help you get better. You can call me doc if you’d like. We will be here for a little bit. I’ll come back in 24 hours with food.

“What! No 24 HOURS WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU? I need to eat I will die if I do not. I’m diabetic”

“Sir. I know you’re not. I have all of your records on file”

“What your creepy”

“Goodnight, sir”


I sit in this plain white room all night tied up in a straight jacket. I suddenly hear the door open, so I get up and go to the door. The doctor hands me a flashlight and a full meal to eat. I took it without saying a word since she did not say anything to me. I sit down with the flashlight, turn it on, and eat my supper. I start to feel tired, so I find it time to take a nap. I lie down in the corner and drift to sleep. I wake up with only 5 hours left till I can get out of here. I start to go crazy staring at the white walls. I feel like I need to see any other color than white because it’s making me insane.

Suddenly I hear the door creek open again. I walk over to the door as the doctor lets me step out of the white box room I’m in. I take one more step further away and when I do I see another person. I go over and say this person thinks I’m a psychopath. I get asked to go to this certain room to change clothes. I walk with Mr. Smith, and he finds me clothes, so I change and go with him to meet my dog. When heading to get my dog, I grab a thing of treats at the store for him. I get to the pound, and my dog is let loose. He runs to me, tackles me, and gives me lots of kisses. Now he won’t leave my side, and I decide that I am taking him. I do not bother to ask why he is acting this way. I do not bother to ask why I was put in a mental hospital for no reason. I just leave with my dog, no questions asked. Eventually, after getting home, I fall asleep fast because I am exhausted from the stress of staying in that mental hospital. Suddenly, I feel the urge to pee……I wake up, and it is then that I suddenly remember I’m in the middle of a …. a….. a zombie apocalypse. I jump up and grab my gun as zombies swarm through my house. I shoot them one by one till they are all dead. I go out on my patio to get some fresh air, and then decide it is time to go back inside. I need some fresh cold water to drink and I really need a hot shower. I shower, and then I get dressed. I decided to wear jeans, boots, and a t-shirt because the weather is decent today.

We can set up more traps for zombies today I’m saying to myself. Then I realize it is time to feed Max, my dog. I grab a bowl, a thing of canned dog food, and I chop it up and give it to my dog. As my dog eats, I hear something, someone is knocking at my door. I go and open the door to find a little girl. She runs in the house, and I yell hey what are you doing? I look behind her, and I see two zombies. I grab my gun and kill them. The little girl was too shocked to speak. Eventually I got her to start talking, and I had her sit down to tell me what was going on. She tells me she lost her mom and that her dad was killed.  I feel bad for the little girl, so I allow her to stay with me of course. I couldn’t let her leave alone. She was only like 15 years old. I go to the kitchen to make some food and decide to grab Emily. I lead her to the kitchen and ask her to help with dinner. She cooks up a pound of ground burger and seasons it perfectly. We cook noodles and make tomato sauce. We have made some great spaghetti. As soon as I sit down to eat, I eat a meatball, then I suddenly start to choke. I hear screaming as I drift to a faint. When I awaken, I see myself in a place where everything is white and everything is beautiful. I think to myself what I am going to do? I think I am….I’m dead. Suddenly a man appears in front of me, I look at him and I realize he looks like Jesus, OH MY HEAVEN IS REAL. AM I IN HEAVEN?

“Am I in heaven?”

“Yes, sir my name is Jesus, I will be telling you where your home will now be.

“My goodness why did I make it here like how. I cannot believe I made it.”

“Well, son you have to take this test and be 100% honest, then we will see if you go to hell, or you go to heaven or hell.”

“What? I thought I made it. Oh no. I’ve done horrible things in life. I’m going to hell”

“Son, please sit and take this test please”

Twenty minutes go by, and he says he’s finished with the test. Jesus hands him his test back. He is too scared to look at it, but Jesus reassures him that it will be okay. He looks at the test and is stamped with approval for heaven. He made it in, he’s so happy he doesn’t know what to do. Suddenly, the ground starts to shake and the whiteness around him turns red. The devil appears where they are, he should not be able to be up here in the bible it said so, what’s happening. The devil…. AHHHHHHHH HELP the devil runs around chasing him with a cane of fire, the man drops to his knees and apologizes for his sins he prays that everything will be ok then the ground starts to shake he suddenly starts to fall hitting rock bottom of……HELL….to be continued….
