Alone in the dark

on

[I have mentioned before that I have found a writing group. I went last night and there was an exercise to write a story one line at a time with another person based on the first line, in this case “Alone in the dark” this is what we came up with. It’s not what I would have done on my own but it’s not bad I think. I think I have a penchant for creepy, I Would love some feedback.]

Alone in the dark she sits as the wind rattled against the side of the building
She stood there, not knowing where she was.
Looking around the room, she spots a light coming from inside of the wardrobe
Slowly she walked towards the wardrobe not knowing what she would find in there
Reaching out for the handle, her arms begin to shake as the light inside dies away.
Taking a deep breath, she paused, to consider whiter to run or open the door.
“get yourself together, it’s all in your head” she mumbles to herself as she yanks the door open.
looking into the wardrobe she was surprised to find nothing but an empty void.
Leaning forward into the void, she reaches her hand into it, when something brushes past her leg.
This was accompanied by a blast of cold air that seem to come from the back of the wardrobe
Sending chills running down her spine, she lets out a scream of shock as much as terror as she stumbles back
Looking back at the wardrobe the Light suddenly reappeared, bright but somehow in the distance.
Stealing her nerves, she walks back up to the, now, blinding light emanating. A deep horrifying voice howls “You’re mine now” as a demonic hand grabs her by the wrist and pulls her screaming into the void.

    1. I showed it to someone the other day and they said they can tell I didn’t write all of it as in places the writing and grammar isn’t right

      1. Just read it again and I know what the problem is. One of you was using past tense and one was using present.

        1. You’re right. I was using present I had the first and last line the other guy had every second one
