To Be Dead

To Be Dead


After enduring what you believe to be the worst life ever, it finally ends. You think you've finally found nirvana. Only one problem, the afterlife isn't all that great. True peace is still three steps away. Can you get there, or will you be damned?

549 readers have visited To Be Dead since catalypse created it.


Everyday seems to be the same thing. You wake up, you eat. You go to work, you eat. You go to sleep and wake up - just to start the same boring day again. What do you have to show for these tedious hours and exhausting lifestyle? A shabby motel room with cold water and cockroaches for roommates. Seems great, right? Ha, no. Everyday you dream of death, and how well it would be. Life is hard, and you wouldn't miss it one bit.
Of course, that's what you thought... You always thought change would come from a paid vacation from work, or even a promotion. You never imagined you'd actually die.
But yet, you did.
Death isn't at all like you'd imagined it'd be. While maybe it might have been painful during the process, afterwards everything is so clear. You can finally be at peace with yourself... right?

You find yourself laying in soft grass, a light mist coating your body. A thick fog floats about in the air, as you pick yourself up. It is nighttime yet there are no stars in the sky. The only light is from the moon, which seems a bit too close for comfort. The moon... it is rather beautiful... hypnotizing even... You don't even realize what you are doing, as you begin moving towards the moon. Trees are everywhere, but no branches rustle as you brush by. In fact, there are no sounds at all. Not the sound of your feet squishing through the damp grass, not of crickets hiding in the brush. The moon is closer now - but wait. That isn't a moon at all. In fact, you see a face of a woman in the sky. As you get closer, she opens her eys. The eyes glow brightly, as you are hypnotized by her unmistakable beauty. Your breath is taken aback by just being in her presence. Just as you are within touches reach, she speaks.

Her voice, no louder than a whisper, is more angelic and harmonic than you could have ever imagined. She speaks very passively and say this, "Welcome my child to an Bás."

"Welcome to death."
