The next installment of Finish the Story 2. This times the prompt comes from Suchita Agarwal. Please see below for her bio. The prompt was: The last thing I remember
The last thing she remembered was fear, how it paralyzed her, and then nothing.
She awoke in the emergency room behind curtains, to the beep of machines. Anxiety gripped her, but she couldn’t understand why. The answer lay just beyond.
Dread rose when she saw the uniformed police talking to the nurse, pointing her way.
She squeezed her eyes closed and then saw his sneer as he mocked, denigrated, lashed out at her verbally and then with his fists. For the last time.
And then it was just her trembling fingers curled around the gun handle. The nightmare real.

So impressive! Thank you 🙂
Interesting. I always find the best story is hidden behind the words.
Thank you, James. I think that is true, especially in short fiction in which we try ever so hard to pack so much in. 🙂
