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...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing.

IceWinifredd: Hello there!I have to say that i really enjoyed this story a lot! I'm a huge fan of the Zodiac Signs and the things that come with them or things that we can add to them in literature to make them more interesting. I never thought that Capricorn would be the bad guy. Maybe Scorpio or Gemini or Vi...

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

Dinzy: I actually liked it although I did not find it fit to be a horror story at all. It was a lot more mystery and fantasy than horror but it was very interesting and a good read.

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). ...

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...
