a horror fiction short story

Rennis was an ordinary Joe. Only a few knew he existed. And outside his wife and two children, they could care less.

But Rennis was changing. A new identity already in existence urged him to accept it as his own. Showering him with thoughts and feelings of what he could become. Showing him glimpses of a life without care, need, or fear—if he accepted.

Compelled, Rennis did.

Had he persuaded himself? Perhaps with self-talk?

Or was it something else?
