Waking Up in Wonderland

By Noizchild

Thriller / Horror

Alpha

Halo Zero: Alpha:

She just talks on without listening. He sits quiet and listens to her talk on and on about useless things. That is all he has at this time.

She talks non-stop about her boring job at the office. She talks about her friends in the states and at work. She talks about her vanity and looks. She even talks about things that she saw on TV or heard on the radio. He sits there and listens in silence.

Why does he put up with so much useless drabble? That's all he can do. You see, he couldn't talk back to her. He has been rendered mute years before he met her. He cannot see her either. He has been blind for years now. He also can't feel anything physically or emotionally, never for a long time. He also can't remember anything about himself. The only memories that he has are the ones that he shares with her now.

However, his mind has a new level of hell locked inside of it. For now, it is only in bits and pieces. Even those bits and pieces are trying to reach out to other to rebuild the truth to him. Yet, he doesn't really want that to happen. He has run out of ways to stop the truth from reawaking upon the city that he calls home for the past three years. He does not want that to happen. But, he does not know how to stop it from happening all over again. He already spent up his previous options in the past. To bury the truth again the way that he always has will cost him dearly this time. It has all pushed him to sit and wait for the inevitable to swallow everything up once again.

In the mean time, all that he has is her talking his ears off until she leaves for work or goes to sleep.

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

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...

Grace Mendoza: It took me around 3-4 days to finish reading this story and it feels like I'm watching a movie while reading this. Everything is so eloquently written and this MUST be published as a book and turn to a movie. There are minute spelling problems BUT nothing to bothered about. Hands down to the amaz...

Orion 394: This book was absolutely amazing! It was great, a little bit disturbing but I still don't get why Frank did what he did... Did he have a motive or did he just have issues? Anyway thanks for the great read!

Evelyn Alonzo: I was up till three in the morning just so I could finish the story! It just really grabs your attention and you can't stop reading it at all! Lol great job, Nick! Can't wait to read your other stories!

Castro Ohana: This book is a great read. I can't wait for the next one (I hope there is another). Like my title I could not put it down! It has just the right amount of drama, actions and wow moments. I also love it when the person you least expected becomes the hero. A few grammar errors but overall a great...

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. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

ChristianHooks: D'graive is the conduit the whoooole time. Can you believe that? DAMN NATURE YOU SCARY! WHAT IN TARNATION

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

Dina Husseini: To be honest I never knew you could make a fantasy this scary. I really enjoyed reading your story. At first to be honest, it was a bit boring but then it got so interesting and fun and (also you even scared me at times). I would really love to see this story on the big screen. It does deserve sc...

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -
