What A Scream

by Andrew Atkinson
Originally published by on 12/02/2019

It was piercing, shiver-promoting and eerily close. The sort of scream that denotes heart- and soul-wrenching wretchedness. Pure horror. Unambiguous terror.

I traced the source of the shriek quickly – it came from me, quivering me. The vision in front of me was awful but I could not avert my eyes, no matter how hard I tried.

What is the worst thing that could happen to you? Have you the nerve to explore and confront this? For me it was right there, coldly staring back. A void, a blank page – completely unencumbered by words.

And I only needed exactly one hundred.
