What a long nap!
I woke up suddenly, tried to stretch my body and stand up in my room.
‘’ouch... ’’
My feet hit the table in this extreme darkness, I decided to open the black curtains then I stopped…
Should I do this??
The outer scenes are terrifying!
Well, I must beat my fear; I will just let the sun to light my room.
I’m safe here.
The rays shined in my eyes, what a feeling…
Now I see the four sides of this room.
My street view always makes me sick.
Crowds are everywhere, driving their vehicles, and running in the main street.
Noise is forcing me to keep staying here, avoiding this disorder.
Chaos is absolute.
This is always surprising me; I wonder how these people could bear the whole burdens, bear this magnified disturbance.
Strange creatures riding weird manufactured metal sheet based on rubber disks.
Strange creatures running and killing each other for the sake of wealth that represented in some dirty pieces of colored paper.
How can they live in this risk? How can they sacrifice their safety?
There are a billion chances of getting murdered, to be injured, burned, or any dangerous possibility in this open society.
I’m scared of the whole idea of leaving my safe room and share those creatures in making such a crime to their souls.
I’m safe here.
I’m fine.
I turned my head down in my hands.
And suddenly I felt a hit on my head…
There was a huge bird knocking me and flew away, I gasped then I realized…
The safety element is no more valid.
I must find a better place.
What about the Closet??!!!

LOVE the ending, I think it is humorous :) Good word choice btw, helps the reader really get a grip of how the person is feeling and the words carry the reader on the roller coaster as well. Good job.

Is English your first language? Jw cause I noticed that you're from Egypt (I'm Egyptian too) and your English is very good. I was just curious one day if there were any other Egyptians on here so I searched and found some and they had very good English. yeah...sorry, i don't have an e-mail. I'm usually on the forums here sometimes...well, I have some stuff sent in for approval which will probably take FOREVER but if you check in in about a month or half a month or w/e, they m...

sorry, i don't know any other forums here or in Egypt. hah, definitely not in Egypt, the only thing i've ever read in Egypt was Al-Ahram and a kiddy magazine called bolbol. that's it....it would depend on how old you are for the magazines and forums too....how old are you?
