Daily Prompt: 1984 | The Double “S” Factor

Today’s Daily Prompt said: You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.

And all I can come up with was my greatest fear.

The Double “S” Factor is what I call it!

The Double “S” Factor is what I fear the most!

I see a pool full of white-silvery fins pointing out of it, circling the pool with such unrest waiting for me to dip even if with just a small finger.
I see a hole in the ground with hissing sounds coming from it!

I know you should have guessed it already; I fear certain creatures. One you can find in water and the other on land.
And both their names start with a letter “S”; hence the Double “S” Factor.

My worst nightmares always includes either Snakes or Sharks.

And that is what I would find in this locked small dark room.

    1. my problem with them in not being just poisonous, or have the capability to crush my bones, or even that they can swallow me whole.
      I fear their soul-less eyes, their creepy slithering around as a movement and their hissing sound….
      ooohhhh GOD… I will stop now…
      Just the thought makes me shudder…
      But I am glad to see there are people who share my fears…. and that makes me feel less of an idiot..

      1. I must admit that I do admire their patterns/colors. I have a friend that CANNOT even see one in a picture. I have witnessed her running out of a room just because she came across one in a magazine.

      2. Wow…
        I used to be like that…
        but my love to nature and animals made me start to get a bit over my fears…
        do not get me wrong; it doesn’t mean I can be in the same vicinity with them or look at them directly or even hold one in my hands.
        But I made myself read more about them and watch documentaries especially on National Geographic, but watching them were so hard, I never finished half of them…

        And I do admit some of them have very beautiful patterns/colours.
        But I can not stop thinking of their eyes :S oohhhhhhhhh….
