Weltchys Notebook

Part Time Writer of Science Fiction and Fantasy. Hopefully a blog for Stories, both Long and Short

Descent into Darkness


Below is my 100 word (ish) submission to the Friday Fictioneers. Photo prompt this week is courtesy of our very kind host Rochelle.

The Friday Fictioneers is a friendly group of online writers from all over the globe who endeavour to create short but fantastical tales with which to enthral and inspire both reader and writer alike.

“To some, the elevator is nothing more than a way to go up and down.”

John looked to his psychiatrist. “To me however, it’s a reminder, of what I lost….who I lost.”

A tear ran down his cheek.

“Everyday, I hear her scared voice, crying for help.”

Sobbing, John shook his head. “The screaming never ended.”

Red rimmed eyes met with John’s.

“You said there was nothing I could do. But you’re wrong. It’s my fault she was here.”

John shoved the drugged and tied body of his psychiatrist into the elevator and pressed the down button.

“This time will be different”, he said, his sobs beginning to sound more like laughter. “This time I won’t run away when the screaming begins.”

  1. Wow a dark and deep story and very well done. Enjoyed it very much.

  2. Wow! Creepy! Great story!

  3. An eerie tale, great take on the prompt!

  4. I loved this one. His psychotic tendencies make for a good thriller.

  5. Wooaa that’s quite a story … well written

  6. Dear Weltchy,

    Wow. That was twisted. Good one.



  7. Great build-up to a dark ending. Well told 🙂

  8. This horror story could go on for a long time…he needs help for what he just did, bumps off his next therapist, needs help for what he did, etc. I hope he’s caught soon. Nicely twisted!


  9. Good, well-written story. That man needs help and fast before he wipes out all the psychiatrists in that area.

  10. Wow! I’ll make sure I don’t study brain medicine.

  11. Oh,oh,poor psychiatrist-could not really diagnose his patient’s illness ;-)Loved this creepy tale 😀

  12. Good golly, good writing and creepy. So he’s done it before? I feel sorry for the psychiatrist – but he wasn’t very good at knowing this patient was dangerous. Maybe the next one will diagnose quicker – hope so anyway. Creepy but well written! Nan 🙂
