Horror / Thriller

Prologue

Destiny was walking home from a party on Halloween though as she’s walking she gets a call from an unknown number. She says in a nice calm and collected voice, “Hello?” she says into the phone but nothing but silence comes through the speaker. She hangs up and says “Seems like some people have been looking at too many horror movies" she walks home but hears someone behind her. Destiny turns around quickly, but nothing is there, she walks slowly to store and walks in. Destiny heads to the back of the store to grab a soda and a piece of candy. She walks back to the counter while she sings her way back to the counter; she gets to the counter where the cashier says.

“Nice voice,” he says while smiling at her.

“Thanks, I plan on going out for American idol when I'm older,” she said in sarcasm while checking her phone for a text message. While the cashier gets her soda and candy rung up he sees a shadow go past the store. “That’ll be 3 dollars,” he said to her while a little nervous for himself and for Destiny. The shadow runs past the door again.

“How far do you live for here?” He asked her.

“Um like a few blocks, why?” she asked back.

“Just be careful while you’re walking home, look behind every corner,” he said to her while he gave her change and a nervous smile. Destiny says, “Ok, have a good night,” she said while she heads to the door.

“Oh hey!” he yells for her

“Yeah?” she asked

“You left your change,” he said to her as she reached to grab it, he drops it on the floor “oh sorry,” he says as she bends down to pick it up. “It’s ok” she gives him a strange look as he puts something in her bag. “Hey if you’re a pervert, I don’t mind calling the police,” she said while standing back up. “No, but you pretty cute” he tried to say so calmly. “See ya,” Destiny says as she walks out of the store looking back at him smiling.


Destiny received a video message when she was only a few blocks away from her home, she opened it and it was a video of her singing from the store. She gets a smile on her face and calls the number back, “Hey dude I don’t know how you got my number, but I’m seeing someone, bye” she hangs up her phone. Destiny pulls out her keys, but she drops them on the ground as she bends down to pick them up a strange figure appears behind her. Destiny picks them up, and then the figure is gone. As she walks inside to put her stuff down, she hears something in the kitchen.

“Mom?!” she says.

But no one says anything back as she heads into the kitchen to find that her cat had knocked something over. “Are you trying to scare me?” She says to her cat as she looks at the back door and sees that it is unlocked. “Mom must have left it unlocked again” she locks the door but does not see that there is mud on the ground. “I need a vacation,” she says to herself as she walks up stairs. As she puts her hands on the balcony, blood drips from the ceiling and onto her shirt.

Destiny goes into her room and turns on her webcam “Hi Lucinda” she says “Hi Destiny, you're home already?” she asked her “Yeah, that party was lame” she notices something “Hey why is Dave’s shirt on your bed?” “Oh, he let me hold it for P.E.” Destiny said to her in a calm voice “Ok, so where is your mom?”
“Gone with her new boyfriend I guess,” Destiny said as she puts her phone down and then both she and Lucinda talk about the cashier from the store. But Destiny hears something downstairs “Hey Lucinda, I’ll see you at school I hear something downstairs it must be my mom coming home drunk” “Ok see you at school tomorrow” they both close their webcams. And Destiny went down stairs.

“Mom, is that you?” she said. Then her phone ranged “Hello?” she says, but no one says anything.

“Destiny…..” someone speaks over the phone in a dry voice.

“Hello?” she says.

“How long have you been sleeping with him?” The voice asked her

“What the hell are you talking about? Who is this?”
She asked

“Someone who knows you inside out"


The voice continues to talk as she reaches for the house phone “Don’t pick it up” The voice says “How the?” she says while looking around her and heads for the window to close it but a person wearing an all-black mask puts their face through the window laughing in a clownish voice. Destiny screams as the man stabs her in the hand. But she manages to close the window, “Who the hell are you?” the person in the mask turning their head.

“Like I said I am someone who knows you inside out” as she looks outside the window the person does not have a phone to their ear. “But if I'm not talking to you,” she says as the voice says “Scared…Destiny” fear and panic is written all over her face, but when she looks at the window the person in the mask is gone.

“Now how long?” the voice asked her again

“Leave me alone,” she says crying while wrapping her hand in rag

“See how secrets get you in trouble,” the voice says a the door is kicked down. Destiny runs up the stairs and looks down, but something drips onto her hand

“What is this?” she asked herself as she looks closer at it, she realizes its blood “Next question, how long have you been lying?” the voice asked her

“Just leave me alone!” Destiny says

“Fine,” the voice says as the person in the black mask burst out of the bathroom chasing her and chasing her. Destiny runs into the attic and hides drying tears from her shirt finding more blood she hears him coming and she crawls into a corner where she feels something wet it's more blood coming from her mother’s dead body.

“AHHHHH” she screams as the black masked killer hears her and takes out an axe and nothing is heard, but blood splashing onto the wall.

“Secrets are good, but they also are deadly”

Raychillgray : This book has a lot of potential and I really followed along well. Definitely wouldn’t put it in the thriller category though. There were moments that I could see an amazing plot structure while other times the plot seemed a little secondary to the story.
