The Disturbing Account of Kazama Godai

By Josh Moberly All Rights Reserved ©

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:

  “Kay,

  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.

  Love,

  John”

  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:

: 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.

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

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 -

AJDay: Hello JaimePAvane,So, this is my first review on this site, and I am glad I found your story. I like where you are going with it and I am curious to see what future chapters look like. Firstly, your narrator; I love that she is describing not just her life but the world around her. Obviously a wo...

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.!!!

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). ...

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...

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...

Darren Powell: Very nice read. Lots of surprising treats from: Schrodinger’s cat and dervish dance forms; to sensei masters and brownian motion. I wasn't expecting this, so it was a pleasant discovery.Also liked the 'cross-over' events connecting one character's/or group's journey to another. I like how that wa...
