Creative Nonfiction short story that is twice published of Nickolaus A. Pacione's work. Appeared first in The Ethereal Gazette: Issue Five (ISBN: 978-1-944171-38-4 now reissued) then with Dark Gothic Resurrected: Autumn '2007. Within the streets of Oak Lawn Pacione saw some of the Good Neighbor parable play up from The New Testament in the gloomy history of this area. The story was written nine years ago in Morris, Illinois when he was visiting his relatives for the Thanksgiving Holiday as he still has the rough draft of this story with the paperclip holding the pages together
The details from the nightmares often drawn themselves out in my sleep, but never really knew how it would play itself out. Even when one becomes ill, the dreams that follow from them lead one detail into the next. It just seems that the nightmares that followed from receiving the prescriptions follow in form of the cruel staff members from one hospital. It seems that every hospital seems to be a layout or a plot waiting to be written for a bizarre horror story or two. This is often the case when one is left stranded in the emergency room on a number of occasions. Much as it seemed a few days before Halloween, everyone is entitled to a scare or two -- whether real or imagined. From the things seen, and the things that are known from the eyes of the sick. It is often the nightmares that paint into the shadows of all that would be seen in this narrative or later related. The things seen in the pattern of nightmares drawn from the ignorance of the staff of one hospital, and ideas seen within the old horror films of the ignorant being the first to go. It is often said in old sermons about those praying for or having the compassion for the sick, but this was a story where they show a complete disregard for the deathly ill. As disturbing as it is, one could see the arrogant triage nurse with black and blond hair dyed. The details I see and relate from the perspective of the nightmare when I did sleep was one of her being dragged out to a boat then left in middle of the ocean. It is a disturbing thought when one thinks this, and sees it in their nightmare. The thought of someone that ignorant to force someone out when they are not prepared for the elements. "You've outstayed your welcome there's the bus," the public safety said to me as he was pushing me out the door. He was taller than me but didn't look like he was much older either. But when he did that, I imagined every twilight zone episode being pushed out in middle of nowhere with hardly anything but my sweats on my back to keep me warm. The old horror plots being something that stood in mind when I was out there in my sock feet.
Nickolaus Pacione got two of his solo works back out there in circulation then has a chapbook published in print. One of his e-book stories is now a print one.
