Missed Call

Have you ever felt like you were being watched?

A chill down your spine and  you break out in goose bumps.

Ever wondered what lurked around the corner or hell even behind you in the dark?

Well I didn't...not until I met her.

I was sitting at home watching tv, it was some dumb ass show on MTV.

It been storming all day so I had to cancel all my plans with my friends to go out.

We were all set up to go camping for the weekend but with these stupid storms we were screwed.

It was 9:00pm,the phone rang. 

I was feeling lazy as shit and let it go to voice mail.

No voicemail, must not have been important.

I flipped through the channels a bit till I came across some music videos.

It was getting really windy outside and I could hear the rain banging harder than the headbangers ball I was watching.

The phone rang again...it was now 9:05pm.

I wondered who the hell would be calling at this time of night?

If it was my friends they could have just texted me?

I was starting to feel hungry so I got up and picked up the ringing phone.

"Hello?" I said.

Nothing.

"Oh a prank caller huh,nice job loser." I laughed and hung up.

I went into my kitchen and grabbed a coke and made a sandwich. 

The phone rang again.

"Are you fucking kidding me!" I yelled.

I looked down at my caller ID and it said "CALLER UNKNOWN" it was 9:10pm.

I picked up the phone again. 

"Listen jackass why don't you lose this number before..."

Before I could finish my threat I heard a faint laugh...then the phone went dead.

I laid the phone down hard pissed at these idiot kids.

I sat back down and started to eat.

I was feeling good and just got comfy and the phone rang again!

"Fuck!" I yelled.

I ran over to the phone and picked it up.

"Will you please fuck off!" I screamed and hung up. 

It was 9:15pm...every 5 mins they were calling...

I didn't know anyone with kids or how they could have gotten my number I thought.

I got my cell and sent out a mass text to all my friends asking if they were having someone prank me cuz it was not funny and just pissing me off.

9:20pm my home phone rang.

I let it ring so it go to voicemail...this time it dinged "you have 1 new voicemail."

I went over to my phone and was about to push the key to hear the message when my cell rang.

It was my friends that were awake letting me know they weren't doing anything but would help find out who it was or if they wanted a visitor.

I replied back I was ok just pissed off and was cool.

I put my cell down and hit the voicemail button.

The same laugh was heard but also had something else in the back ground...a noise of something tapping then it went dead.

I unplugged the phone and went back to sit down.

I flipped through my cell and saw that everyone I texted was asking if I was ok.

I said yeah I was ok but had to unplug my damn phone due to the pranksters.

A knock at my door shook me up and I grabbed my fire poker.

"Who is it?" I called out, the door was not far from me so I knew they could hear me.

No answer. 

I started to creep to my door to peak out to see who was outside.

I got as far as the rug and then I heard it...my phone...my fucking unplugged phone.

Without hesitation I reared out of fear and smashed my phone with the poker.

*knock knock*

"Go the fuck away!" I screamed.

*knock knock*

I ran and grabbed my cell and ran upstairs to my room and locked the door.

I called 911, someone picked up.

"Hello I have someone at my door I don't know who it is and have been harassed all night..."

I was cut off my laughing...I looked down at my cell and was horrified!

A strange little girl was staring at me not the cop symbol on my cell.

"He don't like it when they keep him waiting." She said in a singing mocking tone.

"What the fuck is this!" I cried and the phone went off.

I frantically forced it back on and when I did I saw the mass texts sent to me by everyone asking what was going on what was my problem.

I texted back wtf did they mean? I had a stranger at my god damn door and a psychopath kid messing with me and some how managed to like hack my cell when I called the cops and it popped up with her instead.

I got back more confusing texts.

Some where flat out saying " Are you drunk? Are you crazy? What a lame prank to try and pull on them, A asshole for the pictures...

I never sent any pictures.

I looked through my sent folder and on sight dropped my cell and cried out in terror.

They were photos of me!

Photos of me cutting my wrists and stabbing a child to death with her blood smeared all over he walls and me holding the home phone bashing her head in...

The phone rang...9:20pm.

I picked up..."hello?"

"He don't like the rain so he came in hope that is ok." The girl said then the phone went off again.

This time I didn't turn it back on but threw it across the room at the bathroom.

It hit the wall and broke on impact.

That is when I heard it...a sharp grinding noise then my home phone ringing.

I put my ear to the floor.

"She's upstairs and she is not playing nice, she broke the phone!" I heard the girl on the phone but how?!

At that moment a huge crack of lighting rang throughout the house and all the lights went off.

I crawled to my window and pushed it open and was greeted by hail and hard rain.

No way in hell was I staying in the house with a possible killer!

I climbed down the side of my house railing from my roses I put up last summer.

I felt the thorns cutting me all up, my wrists covered in slits and blood was all over me.

I felt something go through my left hand and saw out of the corner of my eye a man in all black with my poker.

He had stabbed me and yanked out and smiled...his mouth was full of razor sharp teeth!

I jumped off the railing, it wasn't to much of a fall but I was looking up from the man who was seemingly floating in the air with my poker.

I got up and ran to my car but had no keys! 

I ran back to my house and grabbed a rock and bashed my front window open and climbed in.

I cut my leg on the way in, it was a pretty bad gash.

I didn't care I had to get out of here! 

I limped through my living room using the walls to keep steady.

Blood was all over from me on the walls now and floor it was a mess.

I had grabbed my keys from the kitchen and the back door flew open.

The man stood there just staring at me then cocked his head to the left a bit.

I screamed and took off as fast as I could to the front door.

I was almost to the door and I saw her.

The girl from the phone! She was holding both of my phones...

I starred at her, who was this crazy bitch!

"Who the fuck are you!" I yelled.

She simply held up my phones and held them out to me.

"You have a missed call." She said and smiled and had the same teeth as the man.

I charged her with my remaining strength and knocked her to the ground and started hitting her in the head as hard as I could.

With every hit she only laughed harder and louder and it drove me to hit her harder.

Her head started to bleed and and after her laugh had half driven me mad I took my cell and shoved it down her throat and took the other phone and used it to beat down her throat.

I had to get rid of the laughing!!!

I bashed her head in and even with her missing both eyes now and a cell phone shoved down her throat she still laughed.

The laugh consumed me and that is all I remember...

I looked up to see the doctors looking at me from behind the glass with grim faces.

"Is that all?" The one doctor asked.

"Yes..." I said and then laughed...I laughed till I was sedated again.

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.

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Andria M. Redlin-Author: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD-READ WITH CAUTION: The book was an enjoyable read overall, with many surprises I wasn't expecting. There were only a few things that bothered me: 1. There were times when the characters (mainly Opal and Lee) were talking too much, which got in the way of the action.. ...

Judy Haun-Morelock: A very imaginative, compelling story that captivates and holds your attention. Just how will the new Joshua deal with all the changes in his life: his appearance, surroundings, new friends and enemies.

Jason Phang: It's too short! The plot was excellently thought through, with the characters flowing up and down the storylines like the peaks and valleys of the Himalayas. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and the time spent with Asta and her journeys. (:

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

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...
