Monster

"Mommy, can I come there?" I turned around to see my 5-year old daughter at the doorway. It was middle in the night. I smiled as I turned away from my computer. 

"Of course, sweetie." I said and smiled. Then she walked over to me and I took her into my arms.

"Shouldn't you be sleeping?" I asked her. 

"I can't. The monster is making noises in my closet again." 'Ah, again this.' I thought as I patted her head. From the start when my daughter was born, she had..., some problems. Nobody seems to know what's up with her. Or found the reason to it. From the outside she looks like a normal girl, but then there are the times. She gets these fits. Like suddenly she can start screaming, and no one knows when she'll stop. She also can start crying just like that, and while crying she often complains that it hurts somewhere. Once I drew her to the hospital, but the doctors there didn't seem to find a reason to her pain. 

Then there's also times when she sees things. Like this so called monster in her closet. My daughter has a really vivid imagination. I really love her, but sometimes I get really tired... 

"Did you tell it to stop?" I asked her as I stroke her hair. 

"Yes, but it wouldn't stop. It just kept calling at me." 

"But do you know how you can get rid of it?" I asked her. She was almost asleep now. 

"How?" She mumbled. 

"Just close your eyes, and count to three and it'll go away." 

"But it really can't..." And with that she fell asleep. I sat there her in my arms for awhile, before I saw that it was the best to get her in her bed. But before I could get up from my chair, I heard steps from the hallway. I froze on the spot. Now I put my hand protective around my daughter. What the hell was this? I was the only one living with my daughter in this house. Now I was starting to get really scared. Then out of the blue my daughter let out a giggle. I jumped a little bit, because it sounded creepy. 

"You know, it really never goes away..." My daughter said. 

"What?" I asked really scared now. 

"She's there..." She pointed at the door. And the door opened a little bit, following the sound:  

"Sweetie, to who are you talking to?"

dragonswilleise: I loved this book, it was nearly impossible to put down from start to finish. It was fast passed without being overwhelming and slowed down where needed. Overall this was an amazing novel that I will definitely recommend to others.

IceWinifredd: Hello there!I have to say that i really enjoyed this story a lot! I'm a huge fan of the Zodiac Signs and the things that come with them or things that we can add to them in literature to make them more interesting. I never thought that Capricorn would be the bad guy. Maybe Scorpio or Gemini or Vi...

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...

Deleted User: This is an artfully-written horror story which deals with the most frightening monsters in the entire history of the macabre: teenagers. Indeed, the author captures the speech, relationships, and general highly-charged, petty, and competitive atmosphere of high school so well, that you would swea...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

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). ...

Brie Lundy: I have never read a story like this before. It was riveting. It kept me captive. Once I started it I couldn't stop until it was finished. 10/10. I need more of this book. They need to find the Wizard!!

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Evelyn Alonzo: I was up till three in the morning just so I could finish the story! It just really grabs your attention and you can't stop reading it at all! Lol great job, Nick! Can't wait to read your other stories!

rebelmeow: The events in this story blew my mind. I love writing that surprises me, and this kept me holding on for dear life, with no idea what might happen next. The creatures and situations that are brought to life here are unlike anything else I've seen or read. They are unique to the worlds that Ale...

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

drainwater411: such a great read for me. I loved how you had to figure out who everyone was and kind of got a sense of who they were throughout the book instead of just telling all about the characters in the beginning, it helped you really get to know them and grow a connection with them. the relationships bet...
