Mystery / Horror

Prologue

He stood by the window. The sunlight that came in through the glass illuminated the dusty attic. Although the light touched his skin but he seemed care less. He'd been living with it for many years that when living humans count, they would get shocked. With both hands clasped in front of him, he looked out of the window, watching an unfamiliar, black car slowly entered the front yard. He looked emotionless as he kept his eyes on the car. Two seconds after that, the car stopped.

Even with the tinted car window, he could see a couple sitting at the front - the husband on the driver seat and the wife on the shotgun. Both of them looked around the house from inside of the car while unbuckling the seat belt. The wife looked amused. She looked surprised and impressed with the house she's seeing and she looked like she couldn't wait to come into the house and discover the inner house herself. Smiling, the wife turned to look at her husband. Her mouth moved, indicating she's saying something like, "It's beautiful," to her husband.

When the car's doors opened, he didn't expect the couple to have children. Wait, no, they only have a child. A girl. She looked innocent and naive by the way she dressed. Since it's autumn and the weather wasn't that cold, she wore something not too thick but not too exposing. A descent sundress and sandals were enough to make her looked beautiful. Her hair was in a braid that slung over her shoulder. When her eyes looked around the house, like her mother, she looks amused. Her big lime eyes sparkled as she eyed every corner of the house.

Still standing by the window, he watched her. Like he was frozen, he stood there still. He looked starstruck by the way he looked at her unblinking. His mouth gaped as he eyed her. He couldn't get his eyes off of her. His eyes followed where she's heading to and blamed the car for hiding her when she was getting her stuffs in the trunk. He became excited when she appeared once again, walking with her mother to the entrance with her bags. The corner of his mouth twitched and turned into a smirk.

He didn't notice when a boy came into the room as he was busy watching the family or specificially her, but he didn't flinch when he heard a voice close behind him. "New incomer?" asked the boy to him, soft and raspy.

Still smirking from the effect of the girl, he nodded his head. Then he turned and faced the boy. "And I guess we're going to have a girl to be our new member."

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

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...

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Pille: This has been a bit different genre from what I usually read but a real delight. I like the vamps being different from cliche. I like the intriguing and unpredictable plot and the quirky characters. The only complaint I have is that I want to read more but the book run out. I hope there's going t...

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

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 -

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn.
