Am i human

The hair on my neck stood tall as i fell a sleep. Visions of everything i could imagine have gone through my head but none like the one that awaits this dark rainy night. I tossed and turned until i found a perfect position, On my side with the blanket up to my shoulders, and my pillow folded in two.

I turned off my small tv and layed the remote on the amall stool next to the bed. I cleared my throat then closed my eyes. I took a deep breath then fell into a light sleep then to a heavy full sleep.

In my dreams i felt a rush of happiness then a crazy rush of romances then comedies then to sad stories. Lastly i fely a rush of the same dream i seem to have each night, I'm walking in my back yard then i simply jump into my bed then i usually awake to morning.

This time i did awake but not to this world. I awoke to a darkness so unusual. The darkness was cold yet warm and i felt wet. I heard what sounded like children whispering and laughing in a distance. It felt as if my neck hair stood three feet tall instead of my usual half a centimeter. I walked without moving and i cried without making my eyes wet and making my nose drip.

I swallowed deeply then attempted to scream but failed to do so. I heard foot steps that sounded so close i felt as i they were mine. I reached out into the harsh weather and felt a hand it grabbed mine and that's when I awoke. When i looked down my hand was still being held but it wasn't human......

Besides a few capitalization and spelling errors it was a very good piece. I'd love to see it turned into a full story as there are many ways you could take this and I'd love to know what route you'd take. One suggestion, I'd work on transitions so the story has a better flow to it rather than abrupt changes.

I read many stories on this website and yours was by far the best. This piece was suspensful and thrilling. The story had a couple errors though. I think you should capitalize the word "I" and also you should put commas when you have a list such as when you put "I felt a rush of happiness then a crazy rush of romances..." and so on. Other than those few errors your story was well planned and thought out. I also liked the piece because I can relate to it. I can relate by... (more »)

This piece of writing was extremely suspenseful towards the end. I loved the sentence, "When I looked down my hand was still being held but it wasn't human." That put chills down my spine. When you revise you might want to capitalize the "I"s and watch the spelling to make the writing look more professional like in the sentence, "Lastly i fely a rush ... " Finally, you might want to add more details on the dreams, but over-all great story!
