Sunken City of The Ancient One 

by Eric S. Fomley 

 

 

Thom was tormented within, anguished beyond measure, and stressed by life.

He stood in the bathroom and looked into the mirror, into himself, until the mirror rippled. He heard the sounds of waves, saw a sunken city in the glass. A malevolent and ancient voice beckoned in gentle whispers. The vague reflection of a squid-like face appeared.

 

Thom wanted to go. To be free. He bashed his face against the glass again and again, screaming his delight. He picked up a shard, dug it deep into his flesh and veins until he blacked out, bled out, and answered the call.
