Guiding Death reads more like an urban legend that a Creepypasta. However, this story of a lighthouse worker still chills me to the bone. And that's saying something, coming from a guy who regularly tells campfire stories.
The whole pasta has a kind of eerie feel, and you don't know exactly where it's going to go. At least, not until the end.
Guiding Death is short, but it packs a punch. The whole thing sounds like it could be told over a campfire at 1:30 in the morning.
The scenes are described just enough to where you can get the idea of where this happens, but is still vague enough to keep the eerie tone. I also particularly like the way Death speaks. He sounds like an entity that tries to stay nice, but always does its job.
And that last line! The twist at the end was executed beautifully. When I read the last line that DeAth spoke, I had chills down my spine.
"I merely wish to inquire where I might find your son."
Final words: Guiding Death is short, sweet, and chilling. With a great portrayal of the Reaper and a great twist, I'd recommend it to anyone.
