Ok i posted that other one but i changed my idea totally and scapped that intro. Here is the start of my new story. Please give me your opinions. The Guy “Bzzz Bzzz” He lays motionless. “Bzzz Bzzz” His eyes open. “Bzzz Bzzz” He sits up out of bed. “Bzzz Bzzz” He taps a button on his alarm clock so it tells him the time. In an almost robotic voice the clock announces the time is 1:27 am in the morning “Bzzz Bz…” He throws his alarm clock at the wall and it breaks upon impact. He no longer sleeps. He just lies there every night. That is until 1:27 am. He hasn’t slept once in 19 days. Unlike what you would expect for a man who hasn’t slept in so long, he doesn’t feel tired. No matter what he does the alarm clock goes off at 1:27 am. Even if he turns it off or puts the time ahead. It somehow switches itself on or back to the right time and continues to go off at 1:27am. So now he’s had enough and has smashed it against the wall. Before all this he wouldn’t have done something so violent but he has been driven to this. 1:27 am must mean something. He has researched books and the internet but still can’t find anything mysterious relating to 1:27am. He doesn’t understand why the total lack of sleep has not made him tired or had any other effects on him. There is though one mysterious effect that he is unable to comprehend or control. He can’t even work out how this effect is happening. There is no way it can even be caused by lack of sleep. There are pure white marks that have appeared on his back around the area of the shoulder blades and below them. Everyday more of them appear and they are beginning to make an in-describable pattern that he has never seen before. Worse yet he can feel it. Not feel the marks exactly but something under them. It almost feels as if whatever is under these white marks is trying to break through the skin on his back and release itself. He doesn’t always feel it though. Only at 1:27. That is the only time he feels it.
