“Messy Room Examples.
WDILL?? = WHAT DOES IT LOOK (SMELL, SOUND, ETC) LIKE?
You put a little more weight on the foot on the carpet, testing it. It sinks right through and slips on something in pieces underneath. It feels like a bunch of little splinters that are rubbing against your shoe. Probably pieces of old, broken legos, you think to yourself. But then you stop. To feel the pieces of legos underneath the carpet, it would have to not be anchored into the ground. Ugh! You are standing in a sea of mold. Sure enough, when you lift your foot to take another step, there is a hole in the sea of mold where your foot was.
There were broken boxes filled to the brim of gifts from relatives. Some of them had vines growing out of them. There were also a couple pairs of glowing eyes. I picked up an old sandwich that was under there, and sniffed it. It smelled like someone put rat poison in it. Opening it up, the cheese was so moldy, there must have been a couple hundred organisms living on it.
I realized it was that piece of the air I choked on. I coughed it up then I was fine. Not again my feet had gotten stuck to the floor from standing in the same place for too long. The yellow puss was making a hard paste around my boots. It felt cold and as hard as cement. I grabbed the knife in my pocket and I cut just enough hard paste off to escape from.
When I walked in, it looked terrible(And smelled terrible). There was a pile of bar wrappers, piles of dirty underwear and socks. There was also a pile of clean but not hanged in the corner of the room.
Worms wiggle around on the bed, and they cover the entire bed. As you move to the closet, a dead grizzly bear falls out of the closet, fully stinking of skunk farts. As you leave, the door eaten by termites falls on you…
When I lay on my moldy mattress, look up and see the month-old piece of pizza stuck to the ceiling. I rolled over and saw a faint splatter of blood on the wall when I slammed my brother on the wall for throwing up on my floor. I peek down at the floor and, sure enough, there is that tan stain on the floor.
