The Maniac on the Balcony

Felicity stood on the balcony against the biting rain with her pastel hands buckled to the railing. The scenery beneath her was flooded and ruined, and her eyes were daft. The soft melody of
Abel's voice cracked her like an egg. She spared a single tear for their love that she caught on her knuckle and kissed away the familiar sadness. When she turned around, she could see the lie in the white of his smile between his teeth like maggots squirming and brooding a plan of escape. Inside, she began to feel her racing heart pump cold blood into the veins of miscreation. Her fists clinched; her breathing became heavy; she snarled making fire with her eyes. The rain did not slow her down; in fact, it was an advantage. Felicity felt a rush of vengeance explode into pulsing muscle. She choked Abel with her gaze, and his bones became stone. Even his breath was but a cough of white dust.

"Felicity, darling, I am so sorr-"

Before he could finish, Felicity grabbed the left side of his head and smashed his right into the concrete wall. Shrapnel of pink brains and milk white skull were suspended in the air. Felicity burst into maniacal fits of laughter that rung like screams of the damned in the unforgiving storm. She then picked up Abels limp body and threw it over the edge of the balcony into the flooded ruins below her. "See you in Hell, Asshole."

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...
