‘The EVENT’ – A short tale by Chris Graham (aka The Story Reading Ape)

So much sweat is pouring off me anyone would think I was made only of liquid, but I can’t help it, it’s the effect that the impending event always has on me.

Ever since I decided to take this path, fear has accompanied me, becoming my constant, and oft-times, only companion.

Why hadn’t I listened to those who had told me NOT to go this way, it would lead me to a ‘Hell on Earth’, it would drive me insane sometimes, many times, maybe even ALL the time.

But I was too stubborn to heed them, what did THEY know about this path, THEY had not taken it themselves.

It’s TIME!


Now the whole world can see what I’ve done!

I can’t bear to look.

What will the world think of me now?

What will they think of what I’ve DONE?

Will they

in fact
