Waiting for a review


by Macsween

I can't I leave?

Why? The front door isn't locked. Even if it was I have keys. I'm alone in a dark room, the only light coming from the computer screen. The light casts an eerie glow over the keyboard, the thing imprisoning me in this world of darkness and despair. I dare not lift my fingers from the faded keys. I wait and wait, occasionally flicking in and out of pages, praying, hoping for something: a little illuminated box to be precise.

"Oh why oh why hasn't my last post had any reviews?"
