The Escape!

(171 words)

Darkness engulfed her as she sat in a pool of his blood, in a state of shock and tears trickling down her eyes incessantly. She shot at point-blank range killing him instantly but still tried to resuscitate as her intention wasn’t to kill.

She knew he was trouble the day he stepped foot in her office for therapy on that frosty fall evening. There was something remarkably attractive about his persona and donned a wry smile which made her heart flutter.

He was charged with cold-blooded murder of his wife and his lawyer blamed his mental sickness. The Court requested a psyche evaluation and she got summoned.

During the sessions, she realized he’d switch between different personalities oblivious to him. Things spiraled out of control that night particularly when she provoked him about his wife’s death. He became increasingly violent and to escape from his clutches she shot.

She submitted her report the next day stating he suffered from multiple personality disorder and his alter ego may have killed his wife.

  1. Wow, what a terrifying situation! Mental illnesses are so fascinating, but a little scary, too. It would be hard to pull the trigger, but the answer to the question, “his life or mine” would give me the extra strength I needed.

  2. A chilly story & its scary to think of these personality types.Loved the theme & made me wish you had expanded it a little more-more for the likes of me to relish:-)
