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.

trippix1963: Not really a big surprise at the end, but it's pretty well written and fun. I liked the characters - they were more developed than in some successful published books I've read. A few typos but I've seen that in published books in the last few years.

kotabsavage91: This young author really knows her stuff. From the 1st chapter I was sucked in and entertained the book.

Ginger: I like the idea behind this; the idea and story itself are great, However, I'm finding typos periodically and some of the sentences could be worded a bit more clearly. You might want to 'show' a little more than you 'tell,'

Nishant Jain: I felt as if i am watching a movie,not reading a book. The story was definitely interesting. It was more of action than horror for me. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors I came across and at times I found it difficult to imagine some things which the author is trying to convey, but o...

Deleted User: I love your use of writer's craft and how you use figurative language to enhance your writing. It great how you didn't have any spelling or grammar issues.

Jodee3596: I really did like this story. Lacey Amanda Jones is very well written. It's a story about a girl who didn't like who she was but wasn't really sure how to change that and still get what she wants. Then there's Finn. What or who is he? Her gay BFF, some stalker guy who takes pictures of her or the...
