Claustrophobia is a scary story about a text message conversation on Whatsapp between two teenage girls named Natasha and Nina. (It is based on a story by author M. Croche from Argentina.)
Natasha: Please help me Nina!
Nina: Who is this???
Nina: How did you get this number???
Natasha: It’s me Natasha.
Natasha: Please help.
Natasha: I’m trapped somewhere and I can’t get out.
Natasha: It’s very dark and very narrow.
Natasha: I can barely move. I don’t know how I got here.
Natasha: I tried to call you but I don’t have any credit.
Nina: Mother of God! Is this some kind of sick joke?
Nina: It’s not funny! Who are you?
Nina: I’m going to report you to the police.
Natasha: What are you talking about, Nina?
Natasha: Help me! I’m begging you!
Natasha: For God’s sake, please help me!
Natasha: Please tell my parents to come and look for me.
Nina: It’s not possible.
Nina: It can’t be you.
Natasha: It’s me! Who else would it be? Please help me
Nina: It’s a prank. It has to be.
Natasha: Why are you acting so strange?
Natasha: It’s me! I swear it is.
Natasha: Why don’t you believe me?
Natasha: What’s wrong with you?
Nina: Natasha is dead.
Nina: She was my best friend and she died two days ago.
Nina: The funeral was this morning.
Nina: So I’ll ask you again…
Nina: Who the hell are you and how did you get this number?
Natasha: I don’t know what you’re talking about Nina
Natasha: Why do you say that?
Natasha: I’m locked in a dark place and I can’t get out
Natasha: Don’t you understand?
Natasha: Please!!! Please help!!!
Nina: What was the last movie we saw together?
Natasha: What? Why do you ask me that?
Natasha: Nina, for the love of God, please help me.
Nina: If you’re Natasha then you should know that.
Nina: What was the last movie we saw together?
Natasha: Don’t be a jerk!
Natasha: I can’t remember.
Natasha: I’m terrified and you want me to answer stupid questions.
Nina: Answer me or I’ll block you
Natasha: No! Don’t do that!
Natasha: Wait for me to remember.
Natasha: I think it was The Notebook.
Natasha: Is that it?
Natasha: We both cried like crazy at the end…
Natasha: That’s it, right?
Nina: What grade did you get in Biology?
Natasha: Nina for God’s sake! Stop it!
Nina: Answer me.
Natasha: OK OK
Natasha: It’s a trick question.
Natasha: The old woman didn’t give us our grades yet.
Natasha: Do you believe me now?
Nina: But how can it be you?
Nina: Yesterday night I saw you laid out in the coffin.
Nina: This morning I saw them lower you into the ground.
Nina: It can’t be you. It just can’t!
Nina: Where are you?
Natasha: I don’t know.
Natasha: It’s dark and cold.
Natasha: I can barely move.
Nina: My God! My God, Natasha!
Nina: You’re buried alive!
Nina: YOU’RE STILL INSIDE THE COFFIN!
Nina: Are you still there?
Natasha: I think you’re right.
Natasha: But how?
Natasha: How did I get here?
Natasha: Who put me here?
Nina: I told you. You died two days ago.
Nina: At least that’s what they said.
Nina: The doctors pronounced you dead.
Nina: They said your heart stopped.
Nina: We all thought you were dead.
Natasha: But I’m not dead.
Nina: You must have been buried alive.
Nina: I read about these rare cases where people appear to be dead.
Nina: But they’re not really dead.
Nina: They have some weird medical condition.
Nina: They’re catatonic or cataleptic
Nina: Or something like that.
Nina: Everyone thinks they’re dead.
Nina: And they get buried alive.
Natasha: You think that’s what happened?
Nina: It must be.
Nina: If it’s really you and you’re really alive…
Nina: Then that must be what happened.
Nina: It has to be.
Nina: Oh my God, Natasha… You’re alive!
Nina: I’ll call your parents right now.
Natasha: Do it! Hurry, please.
Natasha: I’m starting to feel like I’m short of breath.
Natasha: Answer me Nina!
Nina: Forgive me. I’m back.
Nina: I just called your parents.
Nina: At first they didn’t believe me.
Nina: It took a while to convince them.
Nina: They’re on their way.
Nina: They’re coming with an ambulance.
Natasha: That’s good Nina but tell them to hurry!
Natasha: I don’t know how much longer I can stand this.
Nina: Hang on.
Nina: What I don’t understand is why they buried you with a cell phone.
Nina: Who came up with an idea like that?
Natasha: I don’t know and I don’t care.
Natasha: I just want to get out of here.
Natasha: I feel like I’m losing my mind.
Natasha: Nina don’t leave me alone!
Nina: Sorry Natasha. I just contacted a doctor.
Nina: He says you need to remain calm.
Nina: It’s very important.
Nina: Just calm down and breathe normally
Nina: Until they can get you out of there
Nina: Because otherwise the air will run out.
Nina: Try to relax as much as you can
Nina: Help is on the way. Do you understand?
Natasha: But it’s hard for me to relax.
Natasha: It’s difficult to breathe
Natasha: And I’m panicking.
Natasha: And there’s something on my feet.
Natasha: Something keeps rubbing against me.
Natasha: Maybe they’re worms?
Natasha: Oh God, I hope it’s not worms.
Natasha: I hate worms.
Nina: Calm down. You’re imagining things.
Natasha: But what if they’re worms?
Natasha: Or spiders. Or rats?
Natasha: Oh God, I’m terrified of rats!
Nina: Calm down Natasha.
Natasha: The air is running out.
Natasha: For real.
Nina: Help is on the way.
Nina: Your parents say they’re close to the cemetery.
Nina: I’m talking to your dad on the phone right now.
Natasha: They still haven’t arrived???
Natasha: I can’t take this anymore Nina!
Natasha: I can hardly breathe!
Natasha: And there’s something down here!
Natasha: I swear! There’s something crawling on my feet!
Natasha: I turned up the light on my cell phone but I can’t see what it is.
Nina: They’re two blocks away
Natasha: I can’t wait anymore!
Natasha: I’m suffocating!
Natasha: I don’t have enough air Nina.
Natasha: Tell my dad to hurry please.
Natasha: I CAN’T BREATHE NINA.
Natasha: TELL MY DAD.
Natasha: TELL HIM TO HURRY.
Natasha: NINA PLEASE TELL MY PARENTS TO HURRY
Natasha: BECAUSE I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE
Natasha: I CAN’T BREATHE ANYMORE
Natasha: AND SOMETHING IS CRAWLING UP MY LEGS!
Natasha: NINA PLEASE.
Natasha: NINA? WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING?
Nina: I guess I can tell you now.
Nina: There’s no help on the way.
Nina: I was lying.
Nina: I was keeping you busy so you wouldn’t try to contact anyone else.
Natasha: WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT NINA?
Natasha: I’M SUFFOCATING!
Nina: Are you really so stupid?
Nina: Haven’t you realized by now?
Nina: It was me who gave you the poison that left you like this.
Nina: I injected you again at the funeral.
Nina: And I put your cell phone in the coffin.
Nina: I wanted you to know who did this to you.
Natasha: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT NINA?
Natasha: I’M SUFFOCATING!
Nina: I know.
Nina: And now it’s too late to ask for help.
Natasha: BUT WHY??
Natasha: WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO ME??
Natasha: WHAT DID I EVER DO TO YOU??
Nina: You have to ask?
Nina: You don’t remember?
Nina: You don’t remember when you stole my boyfriend?
Nina: I was in love with Martin and you took him from me.
Natasha: BUT THAT WAS TWO YEARS AGO!!
Natasha: WE MADE UP!!
Natasha: YOU GOT OVER IT
Nina: Well, I guess I never really got over it.
Nina: I loved Martin ever since I was 7 years old.
Nina: And you betrayed me.
Nina: And it never stopped hurting.
Nina: And I’ve hated you ever since.
Nina: I’ve been planning this for a long time, Natasha.
Nina: I wanted to see you suffer.
Natasha: WARN MY PARENTS!
Natasha: I CAN’T BREATHE ANYMORE!!
Nina: You deserve it.
Nina: Goodbye forever, Natasha.
Nina: Enjoy your stay underground…
Nina: With the rats and the spiders and the worms…
Nina: For all eternity.
Nina: 🐀 🕷 🐛 😭 😜
