SOS - The HallwayThe hallway was empty.KyungTae pulled his head back inside with a heavy sigh. Night after night, itching at the walls, he could hear it. Something in the hallway. It wanted to come in. More eager each night. He could feel the eyes through the walls. Watching. It ticked. Waiting. His insomnia had melted into paranoia.In the light, it wasn’t there. No one believed him. Overworked, they said. Too tired, too hungry, too stressed. He’d make them check; always different people, they had to see. It had to be there.It wasn’t.He pleaded, yelled, fought but eventually gave up. Everyone was sick of his story.He quickly made his way across the dorm to his room and shut the door quietly. The building was safe. It was in his head. There was nothing there. He sat gingerly on his bed, pulling his legs free of the void that reached out from under it.The building was safe. Scratching. It was in his head. Itching. There was nothing there. Ticking. The tears rolled down his cheeks.
