The story goes:

In June of 1972, a woman appeared in Cedar Senai hospital in nothing but a white, blood-covered gown. Now this, in itself, should not be too surprising as people often have accidents nearby and come to the nearest hospital for medical attention, but there were two things that caused people who saw her to vomit and flee in terror. The first being that she wasn't exactly human. she resembled something close to a mannequin, but had the dexterity and fluidity of a normal human being. Her face, was as flawless as a mannequins, devoid of eyebrows and smeared in make-up.

There was a kitten clamped in her jaws so unnaturally tight that no teeth could be seen, and the blood was still squirting out over her gown and onto the floor. She then pulled it out of her mouth, tossed it aside and collapsed.

From the moment she stepped through the entrance to when she was taken to a hospital room and cleaned up before being prepped for sedation, she was completely calm, expressionless and motionless. The doctors thought it best to restrain her until the authorities could arrive and she did not protest. They were unable to get any kind of response from her and most staff members felt too uncomfortable to look directly at her for more than a few seconds.

But the second the staff tried to sedate her, she fought back with extreme force. Two members of staff had to hold her down as her body rose up on the bed with that same, blank expression.

She turned her emotionless eyes towards the male doctor and did something unusual. She smiled.

As she did, the female doctor screamed and let go out of shock. In the woman's mouth were not human teeth, but long, sharp spikes. Too long for her mouth to close fully without causing any damage…

The male doctor stared back at her for a moment before asking "What in the hell are you?"

She cracked her neck down to her shoulder to observe him, still smiling.

There was a long pause, the security had been alerted and could be heard coming down the hallway.

As he heard them approach, she darted forward, sinking her teeth into the front of his throat, ripping out his jugular and letting him fall to the floor, gasping for air as he choked on his own blood.

She stood up and leaned over him, her face coming dangerously close to his as the life faded from his eyes.

She leaned closer and whispered in his ear.

"I...am....God...."

The doctor's eyes filled with fear as he watched her calmly walk away to greet the security men. His last ever sight would be watching her feast on them one by one.

The female doctor who survived the incident named her "The Expressionless".

There was never a sighting of her again.

This seems to be an urban legend, usually accompanied by the following photo:

the expressionless woman

Is there any evidence that any of the above actually occurred, and that the photo has any relation to a woman of the sort described in the story?

Could the real god stand up and debunk her, please? –  belisarius Jan 24 '13 at 16:04

You could maybe look up records in 1947 to see how many male doctors in the LA area died in June... or maybe homicides committed at the hospital during that time... but honestly, like most urban legends, there just isn't anything concrete here. –  Tacroy Jan 24 '13 at 17:44

@BrianM.Hunt - Yes, the story is marked as OC, which stands for Original Content. This means the story was not found on the internet, but written by the person who submitted it. –  Oliver_C Jan 24 '13 at 18:40

@BrianM.Hunt - I'm not sure this question should stay open. Otherwise this might set a precedent for people to ask about weird stories no one actually claims are true. –  Oliver_C Jan 24 '13 at 22:06

No, this story is a good example of how an urban legend can spread and get reported as true. While there is the interesting coincidence that the Cedar Senai hospital in the story is similar Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, the actual story itself is fictional and reported as such by the author Ivysir:

I write a lot of mediocore [sic] CreepyPasta, best known (so far) for "The Expressionless" which has since gone viral on several forums, which i'm [sic] eternally grateful for.

The original story can be found to contain the code "OC" which indicates "Original Content."
