The Portraits

13,832 views

There was a hunter in the woods, who, after a long day hunting, was in the middle of an immense forest. It was getting dark, and having lost his bearings, he decided to head in one direction until he was clear of the increasingly oppressive foliage. After what seemed like hours, he came across a cabin in a small clearing. Realizing how dark it had grown, he decided to see if he could stay there for the night. He approached, and found the door ajar. Nobody was inside. The hunter flopped down on the single bed, deciding to explain himself to the owner in the morning.

As he looked around the inside of the cabin, he was surprised to see the walls adorned by several portraits, all painted in incredible detail. Without exception, they appeared to be staring down at him, their features twisted into looks of hatred and malice. Staring back, he grew increasingly uncomfortable. Making a concerted effort to ignore the many hateful faces, he turned to face the wall, and exhausted, he fell into a restless sleep.

The next morning, the hunter awoke — he turned, blinking in unexpected sunlight. Looking up, he discovered that the cabin had no portraits, only windows.

    Not where I thought it was going. I thought he was going to wake up and be in one of the portraits. This is better.

    It made me feel uneasy which is good. But I only had a small problem with it. Elaborate a bit. The idea was very creative and original. However if you don’t elaborate, it still sends a shiver down your spine. Nice work. Keep writing and keep being original.

    That was a great, satisfying story, especially how it was only made out in a few paragraphs. I loved how i couldn’t really predict an ending, then the last line just KO’ed me, sending chills down my body. 5/5. Great job.

    A lot of people are saying this was a tasty pasta. I’m sure if I under stood what was happening I would be loving it also. I just don’t under stand whats happening. I’m really young so I might not need to know whats going on, but please can someone explain whats happening. I want to get scared.
