Sleepless Nights: Story Extract

“Drowsy and lethargic, she is rolled up tight in the duvet. Feet tucked in close to her body, like a child who is afraid of the night, she has her body hidden deep within the covers. A false feeling of safety washes over her as she battles the confusion in her mind.

Images flash in and out of her mind, those of pale skinned, sunken eyed beings hunting her, chasing her. Adrenaline rushes through her veins as she waits for the golden sunlight to exorcise her nightmares, heart pounding furiously as each face taunts her every time she falls into a deep slumber.

Lately her nightmares have taken a turn. More intense, more vivid. She wakes up sitting bolt upright, silently screaming, mouth wide open, tears streaming down her face but no sounds escape her. She fears for her safety in the depths of the night, faces haunt her reaching closer with every dream.

Shaking under the covers, knees pulled up to her chins, she rocks, trying to evade sleep, but her eyelids remain closed as she feels a spell of exhaustion lull her into a semi conscious wake…”

Written by Ling Lee (21/05/13).

Tortured by nightmares, being gifted with the sight, she doesn’t understand it so she fears it. Being pulled into a world where vampires really exist, she fights with logical reasoning to stay sane.

I’m really enjoying every moment of inspired words. I hope I can make use of these extracts and piece them all together for a novel.

Please keep up with my journey and keep supporting me all!! X
