“Still my body kept on walking. Both hands hanging by my sides. I tried to command it to turn back, retrace my steps to a point of origin. I could not. I tried to move my arms and reach out to my back. I could not. I could only move my eyes. My shell was set in motion and I could not do a thing about it. I was jailed. Prisoner of this walking corpse, forced to feel, yet unable to act, nor even see clearly.”

An excerpt from Road to Hell, a short story by Hailie Andersen, soon to be published on Mug’s Tale.
