Do you love me?

By sweetnstormy All Rights Reserved ©

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.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

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.

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.

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!

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

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.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

Dee: It’s been two years since Lilly lost her best friend to a vicious random shooting. Now, after a prestigious university extends her an offer of study, she has the chance to start afresh and leave all her demons behind. But the last thing she expects is to meet Elliot. He's a criminal. She's hasn'...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

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. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

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...
