Wicker Cabin

Horror / Mystery

Chapter One

Summer was over and the green leaves were slowly fading to multicolored spectacles that touched the tops of mountain peaks like shining stars. The sun was shining brightly in the clear blue sky and although it looked warm the breeze coming through the cracked window gave Kara a sudden chill. She had made sure to pack her jacket and now she couldn’t seem to find it.

At the beginning of summer she had decided to visit the cabin and take a break from school, her life, her family and friends. They had all complained that she shouldn't go alone, that something would happen to her or go horribly wrong. She wasn't sure why they felt that way. She was more than capable of taking care of herself, yet they always seem to see her as some little girl.

Her intentions had been clear enough in the beginning and for the first few weeks of summer she had lived freely and happily at the cabin all by herself. That was until she met Ben.
They had bumped into one another outside of Lucy's Diner in the village on a random Saturday night and she was instantly transfixed with him. He was the most beautiful man she had ever seen. His curly black hair and dazzling blue eyes were only matched by the warmth of his smile. They had struck up conversation easily enough and found that they had several things in common, especially their love of rock music.
They had spent every night together since that day. She wasn't the kind of girl who did things like that but Ben had a way about him that made her feel safe and like he'd always be there for her. As summer faded away she found herself thinking that things between them seemed to good to be true and now she knew they were. She touched the pane of glass and then closed the window loudly.
Walking away from the window she plopped down on the couch and closed her eyes. She needed time to think. Once again she allowed the memory of the worst day of her life float in carelessly.

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...
