The Building
Jessi

I look up for a moment at the grey sky, before taking a quick sip of my beer. I spit it back out. Damn companies making bottled shit. Damn friends for buying it. I throw the rest of my beer away. Up ahead I see a building. It’s dark and damp. Do I care? No I do not. I stumble forwards, my sneakers scuffing the ground.

The building is grey and covered in graffiti. Ugh, stupid expressive teenagers. I see a picture amongst the crap. It’s a person. Well it might be. It’s a bloody body. The head rolled into a passerby’s view. Dead. Dark sightless eyes. Beneath it says in what looks like blood “Your next” Pfft. What kind of lame idiot did that? Its probably just red paint.

I walk into the building. On the wall facing me is more writing. It’s in the red paint again. “Your sealing your own doom.” Ah huh… whatever you say weirdo. What’s hidden here? Drugs? Alcohol? I spit on the ground. Then I notice another message under my feet. I shuffle backwards. “There is nowhere to hide” Ok. Now I am slightly freaked out. I turn around to exit this place. There’s no door behind me. Maybe the beer got to my head, not that I had a lot…

I turn to look around the room. No doors. Ok.. I'm probably delirious or some shit like that… If I walk around the room, touching the wall, I should find the door. My hand touches the wall. Only for a second. The wall feels wet. No wonder. There’s some wet paint there. Some red paint.

This is completely idiotic. I swear and look up at the ceiling. “Not much longer left” stares back at me in the same red paint. It’s still wet. A bit drops down into my eye.

“Ahh shit!” I gasp. I shut my eyes and wipe my face.

Suddenly I hear a noise. A voice. “Times up”.

“Bug off” I shout.

I hear footsteps coming closer.

I open my mouth to swear. But the words never come.



A girl walks down a path. She could have sworn the guy from the party went this way. She saw the building. He’s probably in there, she thought.

She saw the picture. She saw the words. And she saw the blood. His blood. She screamed.
