STORY IDEA #321: The Weight of it All

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#321: The Weight Of It All

A serial killer has a terrible back ache. It seems that with every person he kills he finds conditions worsens.

He goes to see a medium after none of the doctors can cure him.

She looks into him and finds the truth of it all.

With every person he killed, their rotting spirits have clung to his shoulders and arms and are weighing him down, doing their best to stop him.

The medium sees the real him, covered in wailing bodies.
She knows what she has to do. She has to hide her horror and somehow call the police without being suspicious because she can already tell the killer has plans for her after the reading is done too.
