My Other Half

By fallingintoabyss016

Mystery / Horror

† Prologue †

"How did it comes to this?" those are the questions that rang in my head. The world seems to slow down and muted sounds rang through my ears. They're mouths moving as if calling out to something that I couldn't make out.

My body feels numb and the pain from the knife stabbed through my stomach isn't helping either. I didn't even felt it when my body collided against the cold tiled floor and blood gushed out of my wound.

"Nii... san..?" I said in a slow raspy voice before I coughed up blood violently.

"Please..." he said shakingly holding my hand "Don't speak"

He tried to convince me that everything will be alright. But, I can always see it in his eyes whe he lies. He knows how bad it is yet, he tried to hide it and totally failing in the process. Though weak, I gave him my most sincere smile "...Don't.. worry.... I'll.. be.... fine" I said "...I'm.. glad.. y-you're.... safe"

He couldn't help but cry at the sight of a dying me. His well built wall had finally broke down. "DAMN IT!" he hollered "DON'T ACT LIKE YOU'RE GOING TO DIE! BECAUSE YOU AREN'T AND YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE! YOU HEAR?!"

He tried to pick me up but I didn't let him. I slowly reached a hand and touched his face. He placed his hand atop mine and rivers of tears flows down freely from his beautiful blood red eyes. I already know I won't last long.

I shook my head and said "It's... fine"

I gasped for breath but find it hard to breathe. He shook his head violently and sobbed "Why..?"

Everything hurts so much to me. Now I know how dying feels like. My head feels heavy, my vision clouded and my body feels numb. But despite all, I still smiled "Because..."

"I.. love.. you.."

My hand lost it's strength and fell to my side as darkness have finally taken over...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care. [Rating: 4....
