Aslyum’s Corner of Darkness

So this is a snippet from my book that I am currently 1/5 of the way through writing (WHAT! A fifth, I know insane) and thought it may be a good idea to show a somewhat teaser. There is so much to choose from, and so many amazing horror filled scene (Not that I’m big headed or anything). But I chose this one because it’s a perfect taster to show what is in the book, and work’s well standing on it’s on. Doesn’t spoil anything, don’t need any previous background, just a creepy snippet. Another reason I choose this part is because I’m actually not sure how creepy or good it really so it’s a part that’s expendable BUT I would like to have. Okay, enough of intro’s here is the money maker. Once again, feel free to lemme know what you think in the comments or if you’re too shy a like so at least I know it’s likeable.

Thanks all’




After a nap, since she doesn’t have anything else to do in a place like this, Belle is gently woken by a familiar voice.

“Belle? Belle. Hey, you need to wake up” says the gentle voice
“Alex? What’s going on” asks Belle
“It’s time silly”
“Time for what?”
“Time for your examination”

A confused Belle looks at Alex and see’s he has no eyes and a wide grin on his face. She tries to jolt up but can’t, something’s restricting her. She looks down but the bed sheets are covering her body so she doesn’t know what.

“Alex, what’s goin- what’s happening?”
“Time for you examination silly, it’s going to be all better soon”

Belle tries to struggle but cant. 2 orderlies come into the room, also with no eyes and the same grin. They start to move the bed that now has wheels. As they turn the bed and lead her through the bedroom door Belle tries to plead but no one is listening, they all just continue to have a wide grin on their faces. As she goes through her bedroom, she’s transported to the examination room that is similar to a surgery theatre. Doctor Effie is there with no eyes and a wide grin, cheerfully sharpening tools, humming to himself. The orderlies stop the bed bedside the table of operation tools that are glistering under the lights. Effie notices Belle.

“How are we today Belle?” says an overly cheery Doctor Effie. “I hope you doing very well indeed”
“Please, what’s going on” sobs Belle.
“Uh-Oh, did someone not tell you about your examination?” says Doctor Effie very cartoon like turning to Alex.
“Oh but I did! Someone is being a silly billy again”
Doctor Effie and Alex laugh together, and then Effie pops up beside Belle by the tools.
“My pretty blue Belle, today is your examination and we get to have some fun.”
“What does that mean?” says a worried Belle
“We get to find what you’re made of” Says Alex
Belle has a confused look on her face “What?”
“Uh-Oh! Someone’s spoiling it!” Says Doctor Effie
“Sorry!” says Alex once again cartoon like.
“Let me show you Belle.”

Doctor Effie flips of the bed sheet to reveal Belle’s arms and legs have been strapped down. Her feet have been removed from the ankle with dried blood covering the bottom, and her hands removed from the wrists. Her torso has been carved into, and chunks of body missing, organs and insides are visibly on display. Belle lets out a piercing cry as she looks at her disfigured body.

“As you can see Belle, we kind of already started without you.”
“But-But-But-“ Belle tries to find some breathe and speech
“Now the last thing” Says Alex
“What?!” shouts Belle
“Uh-oh! Some is ruining it again” says Effie. “Well Belle, I- haha Well Belle?!” Doctor Effie and Alex laugh again. “We have examined everything but one thing.”
“No please!” cries Belle
“Can you guess what it is?”
“Oh I can!” shouts Alex
“No no no, I asked Belle. Can you guess?” says a cheery Effie. He goes close to Belle’s ear as she continues to cry and something changes. All the grins turn to frowns and Effie is no longer overly cheery, he’s aggressive and angry.
“It’s your heart Belle, we need to examine your heart. But I figured you don’t need it” whispers Effie. “So why not TAKE IT OUT!” he shouts as he raises a sharp instrument going to strike her heart.

As Doctor Effie’s hand comes down to strike Belle, everything goes in slow motion as she lets out a scream. She can hears Alex in the background saying “Belle” over and over.

“Belle!” says Alex
“What?!” Belle says jolting up
“You fell asleep, we have group therapy in like 4 minutes” says Alex
“What?” Belle looks at her clock and realises she was dreaming, it was only a nightmare and has been asleep for 5 minutes. “Oh shit, right. Sorry, I’ll get up now”
“Are you okay?” asks Alex
Belle stares at his eyes and normal mouth, that of which she is used to. “Yeah I’m fine. Just a..a bad nap”
“You sure? You look pale”
“Yep, I am completely fine.”
