Daily Prompts: 1984
You’re in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.
It’s a medium sized room, I cannot see any windows. I’ve never known, seen or heard of a room without windows.
I was led by an intriguing voice into this room, the moment I entered, the door locked as if by magic. I was terrified to catch sight of an over-sized statue of Buddha. I looked around I was surrounded by little statues of devotees posed in a way it looked as if they were offering something to the Buddha.
I wasn’t sure why they were there, and who put them there. Could it be these were stolen by some burglar, who chanced to break open the doors of a museum and collected everything he saw and decorated this room which obviously belongs to him.
What I do not understand is,why I’m here? Last time I checked my mind, it did not tell me, that I was a disciple of Buddha, it makes no sense for me to be in a windowless room.
I’m not sure how long I was there I felt everything in the room was moving including the statues. They were coming closer, suddenly the giant-sized Buddha let out an earth shattering laughter, I let out a scream and fainted.
Next thing I felt was my husband shaking me,”What’s wrong?” He said.
“It’s the Buddha, take me out of here, I can’t breathe, he is coming close, I think he’ll strangle me!” I said.
My husband had a good laugh over this nightmare I had, he told everyone how loud I was and how comical I looked.
All I said was, “You know what, it’s not funny!”
