Flash Fiction: A Dark Story

by Devarsi Ghosh

The elevator stops on the thirteenth floor.

She steps out with the tray of food and walks towards room number…

…she reads the chit in her hand out loud, “Six Six S..”

Suddenly the lights go off.

The elevator rings.

And she clearly hears someone walking into the corridor. And the footsteps are approaching…


She drops the tray and runs…

and runs…

before crashing into a giant wall of flesh, who switches on the torch, and on seeing the woman trembling with fear, says,

“Ma’am. Relax. I am the electrical guy, I am here to fix this dark storey“.
