Friday Fictioneers: Trapped

Laura didn’t think she could take it anymore. She plugged her ears in an attempt to silence the screams but that seemed to only make them louder. She looked at the door and she knew she was trapped. She felt the weight on her chest. She looked around the room for something to help her with the pain. If she could just get one cut, the sight of her own blood would give her some relief. But they had taken everything. The screams grew louder and a nurse entered the room with two young men. Laura fought them but they were stronger and the nurse plunged a needle into her thigh. Finally, there was silence.

  1. This is clever – I thought to begin with she had been taken prisoner but in the end she was being held in an institution. Perhaps, though it feels like a prison to here. Nicely told


  2. Very well written and I felt you really put yourself into the mind of the patient. I have a friend with schizophrenia. She hears voices when she has episodes but is strangely ordered and level headed. She told me about one admission where she started hearing a new voice and thought she was in serious trouble but when she woke up in the morning, there was another patient sharing her room.
    I guess for me, I saw some relief in that silence at the end and hope that the help might make a difference.
