Do you love me?

Thriller / Horror

Bloody Love.

Voices.  We all hear them sometimes.  Voices in a crowd, voices on the T.V. and yes, even sometimes in our head.Voices.  Seductive they can be yet scary and so very territorial. 

I sit here on my couch. Tears running down my face. A razor blade in my hand. I am ready to end the pain. "Do you love me?" It came from under my bed.  A soft plea for me to answer. "No." I whispered. " I do not love you." The tears coated the scars not only in my heart, but on my skin.

I sit here on the kitchen floor. My knees hugged to my chest. I am rocking back and forth. Hard sobs coming from my bleeding mouth.  I could no longer feel the razor, so I started to use my teeth.  My flesh was tender as I bit into it. My blood salty and thick. "Do you love me?" The seductive voice asked again.  This time coming from the deep corners where the shadows hid. With a deep breath my own voice came out shaky and scared. "No." I said again. "I do not love you."

I was sitting in the tub.  The water was pink as I cut into my tongue. I knew the voice would be back and I did not want to answer.  The pain was unbearable yet I managed to split the tough organ in two. I laughed as blood poured from my mouth.  Let the voice come now.  This time I would not answer. I couldn't. "Do you love me?" Right on time I thought.  This time it came from the drain down below.  Bubbles rose up to the surface when it spoke. I couldn't answer so the voice became more bold. Repeating over and over. "Do you love me? Do you love me? Do you love me? DO YOU LOVE ME?" I screamed. I held my head in my wet hands and just screamed.  Blood spurted from my mouth as I spit and struggled not to answer, but I had to.  With my eyes looking towards the ceiling asking God why I gave an answer though it hurt and was barely understandable. "No. I do not love you."

I sat in the middle of my living room floor. A sharp long blade in my hand. My eyes were far away. Trying to focus on something that I could not see. I tried to take my mind to a place that I dreamed would be safe, but the voice whispered around me. Circling me, laughing, "Do you love me? Do you love me? Do you love me? Do you love me?" Over and over again. Around and around me. Closer and closer until it finally whispered in my ear oh so gently, "Do you love me?" My eyes rolled into the back of my head. Only my whites were showing.  I smiled, and tilted my head to the side.  Using the voice in my head I answered, "Yes, I love you." Then I slid the blade across my neck.

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

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 -

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

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.

ahattar4096: The only part. Get annoyed of is how they ask soooooo many questions here and there and it just makes it a bit boring for me. Like so boring that even some I skip through and after I do it has nothing to do with what they will next talk about in the story. My opinion is tha mabye the questions th...

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

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...

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.

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!
