‘The Roommate’ By Tyler Grant

The Roommate is a 4,750 word psychologically driven story about the dystopian stigma surrounding the human reaction to tragedy, loss, betrayal, and self-deception. The Roommate is a thought provoking mind-bender that shows its main character in a perilous battle for sanity after the death of her child. When she conjures an imaginary friend to fill this void her long time lover becomes concerned for her mental health. With time running out, and a horrifying decision about survival looming around the next corner, the protagonist must step outside herself to understand what is happening within. Thank you for considering publication of my short story, The Roommate.
