Death Of A Medium – A Horrific Work Of Flash Fiction

Death of a Medium - Flash Fiction by Willy Martinez

The couple had been living in the old house for years now and had grown increasingly fascinated by the paranormal. They had heard stories about spirits inhabiting the house and wanted to find out for themselves. In an attempt to prove the presence of ghosts, they decided to call in a medium.

The medium arrived, and the couple welcomed her into their home and showed her around. She began to do her work, making connections with the spirits, claiming to sense their presence in the house, and trying to form a link. The couple eagerly agreed with whatever the medium said, pretending to be victims of a haunting.

When the medium asked to visit the basement, they agreed without hesitation. They followed her down to the darkened room, eager to see the spirits.

The eerie atmosphere of the darkened room was palpable as the couple descended the stairs, drawn in by the mysterious medium’s siren call.

The couple seemed out of sorts. They moved with an almost unnatural swiftness as if pulled along by an unseen force.

When they reached the bottom of the stairs, the couple suddenly attacked the medium, stabbing her multiple times. Her desperate screams echoed through the chamber, the sound of her terror reverberating off the walls. The couple’s onslaught was relentless and merciless, their faces contorted with rage as they continued to stab their victim.

The couple made no attempt to hide their brutality and the violence of their actions shocked even the most hardened of onlookers. At that moment, the darkness of the chamber seemed to close in, the couple’s actions a cruel reminder of the darkness that lies in the hearts of all men.
