Inside Out

Untitled Chapter

The year was 1988, it was in the subtle month of August. The leaves where turning shades of red and orange, and the birds where getting ready to fly south for the cold this years winter would bring. In the little town we can see all is quiet, then, the sharp scream was heard.


We can see what appears to be a laboratory, this lab however was different from most. Instead of beakers and chemicals where blood stained scalpels, metal tables along with leather restraints, and a glass room. The glass was two inch thick laminated glass, the type used on the windows of military vehicles. Inside this glass prison lie but one person, a male who looked to be in his early twenties. He was sitting down on the floor of the chamber, awaiting the fate that his captor chose. Suddenly, the creaking open of a door could be heard, followed by slow and heavy footsteps. The man in the chamber stood to his feet and looked as his captor had returned, his captor was a very weird looking one. His skin was paler than pale, eyes lifeless, and nails; god his nails where so unkempt you could trim your hedges with them. He was old and frail, had white hair, and a very creepy laugh. In the center of the room was a control box, it looked to be worn but it was in working condition.

"So" the captor says to his prisoner in a very dark and disturbing tone "This is it, this is how you die, in the name of science"

The man in the chamber replies in a begging tone "I don't want to die like this, please, just shoot me or hang me"

"Now that wouldn't be fun, would it now?" his captor replies as he walks to the control box.

Once at the box, he is about to push one of the buttons when the man in the glass prison yells "WAIT!"

"WHAT!?" replies the captor.

The prisoner continues "What is going to happen when you press that button?"

"A gas will be dumped into the chamber from the floor. Before you try and hold your breath, don't waste your last moments. The gas can be absorbed through your skin pores" the captor says "Once ingested, the chemical will target cells on the interior of your muscles and push them to the surface while simultaneously pushing your skin to the inside. In simple terms, the chemical will turn you inside out."

The prisoner was shocked by what he had just heard, the captor then clicked a button, suddenly the room was being flooded with an orange gas. This began to freak out the prisoner, but before he could do anything the room was full, he couldn't see in front of him. It was like an orange fog, then, he blacked out.


After the gas was cleared from the chamber, the captor went to the edge of the chamber to see if his work had paid off, but what he say didn't make him happy. The prisoner looked to be fine, no exposed muscle, no sign of skin movement. That's when the prisoner shot up and threw himself at the glass, he started pounding on it, eyes full of rage, or, eyes full of really nothing at all, his eyes lacked pupils. The captor jumped back in fear and stared shocked at what wasn't even a man inside the chamber. 
The captor yelled at the viscous creature "WHY DIDN'T IT WORK, I HAD EVERYTHING WORKED OUT PERFECTLY!""Do you not understand?" the creature said."Understand what" replied the captor.The creature says in a very dark and ominous tone "You wanted to create a chemical that would turn a person inside out, and so you have. Humans keep inside of them the worst creature in the world, the creature of man, the darkest part of his/her self. You've brung out the demon the lye's inside of a human"The captor looked at the monster in shock, the monster slammed into the glass cracking it a little, he then hit it again cracking it a little more, finally after a third hit the chamber shattered into chunks of glass. The monster ran at the captor, the only thing the captor could do was scream in terror as not only was the monster scary in it self, but the idea that not only did a demon lye inside the everyday man, but that a demon lye's inside of him, and that a demon lye's, within you.

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...

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!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

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...

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.

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...
