Your roommate talks loudly in their sleep, and one night they say something that you feel you have to warn them about...
Once upon a restless night, I found myself sharing a dorm room with my unpredictable roommate, Mark. While most nights were filled with his usual assortment of incoherent mumbles and occasional snores, this night was different.
As I lay in my own bed, trying to ignore the symphony of sounds emanating from Mark's side of the room, I suddenly heard him speak clearly, though still in a hushed, dream...
In Shadow Or Silence (Part 1)
I wake to the sound of strangled screaming. The hallway is cold and dim as I stumble down it, still half-asleep but waking up quickly, towards the epicenter of the noise.
David lies twisted up in the bedsheets. His chest rises and falls too quickly, the throb at his pulse point accelerating into a panicky rhythm. I run to the bedside, hands hovering. Inadequate. I give a soft “hey” and began to t...
Audrey walks into the apartment, her arms laden with grocery bags. She places them on the counter as Emily comes out of her room.
“Hey!” Audrey greets when she sees her roommate. “I couldn’t remember which kind of gatorade you said you wanted so I just went for classic fruit punch. I hope that’s okay.”
“Yeah. Yeah, no that’s fine.”
Emily hasn’t seen her roommate since last night; Audrey was ...
His roommate’s snores had awoken him in the middle of the night. He thought about wearing his earplugs
but a burst of energy surges through him, telling him he won’t easily go back to sleep. So he gets up from his bed and heads to their small kitchen. A rarely used amenity in their tiny apartment as he and his roommate relied more on fast food rather than their lackluster cooking skills. He decid...
“Who’s Luca?” Eureka asked. He couldn’t help it, he had to know, but he regrets the question instantly.
Angelo’s brow furrows instantly, his mouth shifting down in the frown. His jaw sets hard, his nostrils flare as he inhales. Silver eyelashes flutter as his gaze traces down.
Eureka swallows nothing, attempting to moisten his suddenly dry throat. He’s made a mistake.
They were just having b...
“Ugh”, I slump even deeper into my bed.
Pillows everywhere, and empty plate of food beside me and a laptop open to an unfinished essay tilted “The River Nile”.
I hate all-nighters.
And there goes the last sip of my third coffee, great.
I slowly reach out for my phone and check the time. Only 2:47am.
The thing that annoys me most is Kayla, fast asleep it the bed across the room. She is the pe...
Drowning In Fears
I sat up in my hospital bed and reached over to the nightstand where my glass of water sat. I grabbed it and took a sip as I looked at the patient next to me as the curtains were open. He was on the bus with me when it crashed. At first I thought he was in a coma but he moves and speaks as if he’s having a nightmare that never ends. Leading up to this point in time I had been bed ridden after the ...

I was up late one night on my computer, studying for my upcoming test when I heard my roommate, Olivia, murmur something in her sleep. At first I didn’t think much of it, she talked in her sleep quite a lot, but when she started saying things like “Hide!”, “Help me”, and “They’re here.” It worried me, what was she dreaming about? Initially, she was only saying these things quietly and just tossing...
“I need to… run… hide, he’s here.”
Elena was woken up by the small scared voice of her best friend Alice.
“I’m never going to be safe.”
Elena stood up and ran over to Alice.
“Alice,” Elena grabbed her arm and pulled it.
Alice opened her eyes slowly.
“Elena it’s late.”
“You were talking. You said you had to run from someone.”
Alice was wide awake now, “Haven’t you ever said crazy things in your sl...
