You’re slowly stirred awake by the distant ringing as the phone beside your bed pulls you out of your dreams. Your thoughts gather themselves and you groan, reaching over to answer.

As soon as you place the phone to your ear, you’re greeted by the background noise consisting of twisted screams. People in agonizing pain begging for help or death, not that the interference allows you to hear any individual voice clearly enough.

“Get out of the house now!”

The call ends abruptly after what you could have sworn was a voice from closer to you than on the other end. You shift yourself to the side of the bed, sighing while rubbing your eyes. A call this startling and this early in the morning would keep you awake.

Your wife shuffles to the side, apparently also woken by the call. She wraps her arms around you and gives a light kiss on the neck.

“Don’t worry about it,” Her half asleep mumble calms you down somewhat.

Just as you’re about to place the phone down, it rings again. You fumble slightly and drop it. Instead, you feel your wife’s arms tighten around you, preventing you from leaning forward.

It’s then you notice a subtle difference between the arms around you and the familiarity of your wife’s.

“He’s too late to save you anyway.”

    Dare I do it? Oh, why not?

    WHO WAS PHONE???

    Honestly, though. This one just scared the shit out of me. I’m not getting married for a long, long time.

    Nice story, but the background noises in the phone call seemed like they were thrown in there just for the hell of it.

      The man’s “wife” is not actually his wife. As in, the person beside him in bed. The person beside him is a murderer or something.

    THEN WHO WAS WIFE???

    Wow, what a lovely way to start your morning.

    Bricks haven’t been shat, but this is still pretty creepy. Whoever the OP is, great job.

    Or is it “whomever”? I always get those confused, sorry.

    I liked the supernatural element to this. Maybe his “wife” had been planning his death all along. The screaming is a good touch, reminds me a bit of the “save yourself” in Event Horizon.

    Y’know, now that I read it again, this story is beginning to sound more like some roleplaying fantasy…

    When someone says get out of the house, get out xD

    This is good, except a little confusing.

    If you are not able to get this tiny collection of sentences and make sense of it then you really ought to learn to read. I mean sure, maybe you can pronounce words but if you can’t understand this story you have no reading comprehension.

    The phone rings and wakes a man up, telling him to get out of the house. Arms from who he thinks is his wife hug him. He then realizes it isn’t his wife and the person says “it’s too late”.

    You guys need to reread it or, I don’t know, not randomly skim the thing and decide leaving a comment is easier than figuring it out.

    I feel like a dick but I just can’t see how anyone could not understand this story.

      Your explanation still doesn’t really make sense of the story.

    @23: He was half asleep, the person/thing in the bed was mumbling so maybe it just didn’t register immediately. Sometimes when some people are startled awake it can take them a few moments to get a grip on their surroundings.

    I like this one, though it could maybe do with being drawn out a little bit or reworded to emphasise the protagonists disorientation.
