Experimentals: A Narrative Fiction Essay

Decent Essays
I was led into a room that oddly resembled a doctor's office. I blinked, glancing around. I wonder if this'll be just like a normal doctor's appointment. Part of me hoped it would be and that I would be free to go afterward. Another part of me highly doubted I'd be released to go home after this. I couldn't pinpoint exactly what was going on here, but whatever it was, it wasn't normal.

"R-requirements for wh-what?" I asked, curiosity mixing with slight apprehension.
"You'll find out soon," Dr. Zaki said, adding irritation to my mixture of emotions. Why won't anyone give me a straight answer here? It was starting to get old really fast.
A paper suddenly appeared in Dr. Zaki's hands, which made my eyes widen. Not only did objects disappear in this place, they appeared too. Where am I?! I wished I could figure that question out. Sadly, I was having a hard time doing so.
Dr. Zaki was reading over the paper. He looked at me with a smile. "Well, you pass the test, Drew."
