Reality by Shilo
Prompt: Write a story that starts or ends with "everything went black."
My heart pounds as I try to grasp the reality of what just happened. The blood pools at my feet. But it's not mine. Just a few seconds earlier I had been running home from school. Who knew I would come home to this? I hear a door slam but don't register what it means; I'm too wrapped up in my misery. A sharp scraping noise next, and I'm snapped back to reality. I fall to my knees, but this time, the blood is mine. Then, everything went black.
