I Just Want It To Stop Ticking | Original Short Story |
Welcome back to The Nightmare Archives, this week I read you another original story of mine. " I Just Want It To Stop Ticking" can be interpreted as a desperate plea of a man who feels he's lost everything, maybe even a man who's on the brink of a mental collapse and slowly losing his mind. However you interpret it, I hope you enjoy it. If you have a story of your own that you'd like to be read on the show, email us at email@example.com. Thank you and until next time...enjoy.
