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.

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 ...

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

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. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

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). ...

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 -

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.

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.

Pam Lobato Ceja: The plot is interesting although for me the ending feels a bit rushed, since a lot happens in very few pages. I did notice a few grammar mistakes here & there, but nothing too noticeable.Overall, I enjoyed this greatly.

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

Andrea Norton: This story was so well put together. It was suspenseful, the storyline flowed perfectly and it was full of interesting twists and turns. I found myself getting very involved in the story and read it in just a few hours. I'd really like to read more of this author's work!

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.
