ENDING OF “HYPOCHONDRAWAY”
Lizzie gawked in horror as bloody tears wandered down my face.
” Oh my! Don’t worry, mam. You are just having an abnormal reaction to the- -oh dear.”
Her eyebrows crinkled as she tried to resist a frown. Her broken wincing face got smaller and smaller until I couldn’t see it at all anymore. I could feel my body losing itself, becoming more and more empty every minute, with every intense suck of the machine. All that blackness was seeping out forming small puddles of me on the floor. Drip. Drip. Drip. Into the cracks between the tiles. Lizzie’s voice swooped in: “I can’t! I can’t! Everything is leaking out! It’s everywhere, she’s everywhere!”.
I fell back and stared at the snowy white ceiling. “You’ll soon be forgotten”,it said brightly.
