The Three Mistakes
Hearing a rasping sound on my door, I left my warm blanket and checked the time. It was 1 A.M.
Who could it be? Peering through the spy-hole, I saw a silhouette. I should have been scared but my soporific brain couldn’t process and I opened the door which was my first mistake of that fateful night.
When I opened the door, I did not see anyone. I wondered if I was dreaming or my brain was playing games with me. “Come in”, I said sarcastically. It was my second mistake of the night.
Closing the door, I went to the kitchen to drink water. My throat was parched. I filled the glass with water. I noticed the water in the glass slowly turned red. I opened my mouth to scream, but no sound came out of my mouth. Have I gone dumb? I dropped the glass. Did I hear the sound of the shattering glass? Am I deaf, now? And that’s when I made my last mistake, I turned around. I saw a shadow behind me, holding my glass.
I don’t remember what happened after that. When I woke up, I was holding a glass in my hand, with red liquid. The shadow next to me whispered “You were thirsty. Bottoms up, your welcome drink. Cheers!”
