Monster

By PeachesSparklepants

Horror

Monster

A monster's all I am...

I kill people, and I can't stop it from happening no matter how hard I try. Whenever I see or hear something that reminds me of that terrible time, the monster comes out. And when the monster comes out, all Hell breaks loose.

And that monster... is me.

Sheesh, talk about a war with myself... yeah, we've all had to battle with our own internal feelings or something like that, but for me, it's almost like a literal war with myself. Look, when it happens I DO try to fight it, but the monster always wins. To make things worse, I can't even tell the ones I hurt I'm sorry because they almost always end up getting killed.

Sometimes, I think it might have been best if I HADN'T survived that war, since if I died, I wouldn't have become this monster in the future. I have been on the brink of committing suicide before, but I just can never do it. I just want to stop being a threat to those around me.

The thing I turn into when I'm reminded of the war I guess is like my alter ego or something... but it's still me. I'm not sure if I think of me and that as separate entities or if we are one and the same. Maybe both. Either way, I need to find a way to stop the monster. No. Not stop it. Kill it. Get rid of it! If my condition truly is uncurable, the only way is to get rid of it is to get rid of me. Is THAT the way to stop all this? No! There HAS to be another way! Heck, right now I wouldn't mind if I got locked up in one of those rubber rooms with me in a straitjacket as long as it keeps the monster from getting out.

No one can tell me any different.

I'M A MONSTER.

Shelley Miller: The ideas and the set up and this are amazing! The feel of the story goes from science fiction to horror to suspense all in a big, thrilling ball. I really like your character so far and her powers and the idea of the ark being a person. The world is intense and gritty and clever as well. While a...

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

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 ...

Shantell Murphy: I absolutely love this . I have not read a book by my choice since first grade I am in 9th grade now and I love this book . its suspense is really good . it's alot of foreshadowing witch is cool . it gives a thrill and excitement to the book .

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

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.

Kayresia A. Bass: Again, the author has amazed me. Very good story right from the beginning. As the story begins, curiosity keeps you reading just to find out what is going to happen next. Gabriel is an average guy who finds out later he is not so average. He meets and falls in love with a woman named Tanya. I lov...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

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.

Victoria Lovett: I really enjoyed reading this. The ending was a very nice twist. I never expected that. Overall this has been one of the best books I've read in a long while. Excellent work. I would buy this as a real book instead of just one on my phone if I had the chance.

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing.
