Room 666 Enter At Your Own Risk

Upon entering the hotel she felt a shiver go down her spine the carpet seemed stained by something that looked like wine He cleared his throat then with two spindly fingers passed her an old rusted key that was attached to a long piece of twine ... Sorry Ms Demise but Room 666 is all I have left for the night she put the key in but noticed something didn't feel just right there were many secrets in this old hotel and ghosts that burr underneath the door a slimy ooze poured, she opened the light Inside, the room was dimly lit with a red neon luminous bulb she poured herself a stiff drink, but when she took a gulp her vision turned blurry and her tongue swelled thick as fur with each swish-goop she felt needle pricks inside her sculp The next morning Ms. D. never left the hotel and never paid a new guest arrived saw the blots but figured it was the maid who dropped her dirty mop on the spot, Rm 666 your key Sir, he too never left, a decrepit Concierge with eyes of cold Jade never got tired of booking Rm 666. As he handed them the key he told his victims, "tomorrow morning, your breakfast is free"

Wow! Mystic, I agree with Milt, this is such a chilling story. It made the hairs on the back of my nape stand up. It's the makings of a good horror book/movie. Good title, content, and dark imagery. Well done. Have a nice day-Alexis

Wow, a chilling story, Mystic Rose Rose. I was stunned as I read it. But then, I should have figured as much from the room key to 666. Wonderful!
