The Disturbing Account of Kazama Godai

Thriller / Horror

Prologue: A Communication to Director Harper from Field Operative Dunaway

Director Harper,

  We were finally able to decode the encrypted e-mail sent from John Moltisanti to Kayako “Katie” Yamamura (hereafter referred to as Subject 15) on January 6th, 2013.  It wasn’t easy, and we had to resort to Item 97 for assistance in decrypting it.  The first part of the e-mail reads as follows:


  I know that I should probably wait until you’ll be back from filming next week but I don’t know if I can keep this information contained for much longer.  In the last two days alone, my computers have been attacked about three dozen times.  Luckily, they didn’t realize they were going up against a guy who designed an AI to serve as his cyber warfare and antivirus suite.  So when those cockbags tried to ‘hack’ my system, RENA flooded their servers with about three petabytes of -suggestive adult material.  I’m not saying it was porn, but if you remember your Avenue Q quotes; then you’d know that I’m lying. 

  Anyway, I think that they are after Drake’s partial translation of one of those books you took from Lance.  It turns out that he stole them from me when -well- you know, and I found them on our little excursion to what was left of North Arkham High.  I don’t know how they got there but, after reading this translation, I’m pretty worried.  Now this could very well be an elaborate hoax, and Drake hasn’t finished translating the second book yet, but this corroborates what we saw at that school with our own eyes, and if that is the case then I have a good idea as to what the other book might be.  If I’m right then I don’t think we want to read it. 

  Anyway, after you read this this message will be deleted from your inbox and RENA will scatter it throughout the deepest parts of the net.  I'm talking Marianas level deep.  So you don’t have to worry about them attacking your computer. 

  I don’t like where all of this shit is going Kay, and neither does Other John.  This Kazama guy’s account freaks me the fuck out.  Everything in this put me on edge from the future devices, to that red-handed guy, to the mentioning of my [Data corrupted..."Fuck you bastards, enjoy your porn" XOXO, JM], and let’s not even start on the obvious paranormal mindfuckery.  Most of all I really don’t like what the final few paragraphs imply. 

  I love you Kay, call me at around 9pm my time if you can, I’m heading back up to Arkham tonight and could really use some of your clear headed rationalization to help calm me down from this shit.



  It is clear that our operation was a success.  As you predicted Subject 15 and Mr. Moltisanti entered Site 77 last month, and encountered the anomalies within.  Mr. Moltisanti recovered the items that Agent Clifford planted there on your orders.  And by all accounts it appears that Subject 15 “awakened” -as you predicted- shortly thereafter.  What puzzles me sir is Mr. Moltisanti.  He’s already connected known survivors of the 1928 incident -survivors that we know to have some command over reality- and if Moltisanti has created an artificial intelligence then I am of the opinion that he might also have an awakened eidolon as well.  I request permission to investigate that matter further.

  Regardless, what follows is the translation of the final accounts of Yotsubishi Industries scientist Kazama Godai that we decrypted from Mr. Moltisanti’s e-mail:

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

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...

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.

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

Deleted User: You put a lot of effort into this story, and in some places the detail is lovely. The beginning is really good. There is a lot of good detail in the first paragraphs. I get a good feel for his confusion.But I am lost in the back story. I have no idea where this is going. Perhaps mention someone y...

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...

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

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 -

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.
