#MiracleChallenge : Week – 8 (https://miraclegirlblog.wordpress.com/2016/08/01/miraclechallenge-week-8-dated-2nd-8th-august-2016) Challenge No :3 Write a Short Story using below three prompt words- * ROAD * EFFECTIVE * ILLUSION
Hello Everyone !
How are you all today?
I have written a short story using the above Prompt words today. This is my 3rd #MiracleChallenge entry for this week. Hope you like it. Here it goes 😀
The night was dark with no sight of moonbeams anywhere near or far. The lightning struck and the heavy rains were hitting the window. Gusting winds made the open window to produce annoying sounds. Curtains were flying, waiting to run somewhere far away from the house.
My sleep was thankfully broken from a worst nightmare because of that window sounds; which I used to get repeatedly about a girl child; for almost 8 years now. I don’t know what my dream implies. Every year, I feel the growth of that girl too and I see myself playing with that girl. Sometimes, she cries nonstop, when I play with my 6 years old daughter ‘Sarah’. Today, I asked her name and she replied, “Mama. I’m Aria.” Saying, she climbed upon me and choked my throat in order to kill me.
When I woke up, I was sweating profoundly, my heart was beating randomly and my breathing was heavy. I immediately got up from my bed and went downstairs to have some water. While I was drinking water, the same effective voice which was heard before came from nearby me “Mama. I’m afraid. Please come to me.”
I saw a figure standing in front of me and it looked like Sarah’s. Calling ‘Sarah’; I sat down on my knees and came forward to touch the figure. But, the figure vanished. I was confused whether It was my illusion or I was seeing everything for real. Either way, it made me worry about my daughter Sarah. At once, I called the Boarding School, where Sarah is studying. But, there was poor network and the connections kept failing. I instantly took my car and drove to the school which was 3 hours far from here, in order to get my Sarah back. Since, it was raining heavily, there was no power anywhere. The street lights were off and I was not able to see the road properly.
A vision of a girl child appeared in front of the car. I looked at her closely while driving slowly. To my surprise, it was the same girl ‘Aria’, who comes in my dreams. She was holding a Skull and walked towards my car calling me ‘Mama’ with dark blood tears mixing with the rain. In fear, I turned the car to my left, smashing the divider. My car flipped continuously for few times and fell down from the bridge.
Along with my crushed car, I was also drowning. Blood teary Aria came inside the locked car and caressed my bleeding head saying, “I’m here, Mama.”
I was not able to breathe, still my words managed to calm her. I responded the truth in pain, by kissing her bleeding eyes “Aria, my baby. I’m sorry for what I have done to you. Please forgive me. It was not intentional. I remember that I have given you the name before your birth. But, doctors advised me to abort you, since you were about to born physically abnormal.”
“Now, you can’t run away from me, Mama. I need you. Forever.”, saying Aria tilted my head to death. Now, I’m leaving everything behind to live with my Aria.
Thank you for reading. Your comments are most appreciable 😀

A gem of an idea. I knew a couple who had to make the same choice. I can’t think of many choices which are as hard. This is probably a true story for someone! I liked how you refrained from describing her physical appearance, which is the tempting thing to do – as it would have diluted the horror quality.

Thank you so much, Pittnovels for taking your precious time in reading my story. I’m pleased to hear from you. Actually, yes ! This is the case which can be seen unfortunately and can’t be avoided. But still it’s also a soul. So, I had decided to use this instead of aborting an unwanted pregnancy.
I’m glad that you liked my horror story 😊
