Wicker Cabin

By Jessika Kazee All Rights Reserved ©

Mystery / Horror

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.

Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm.

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

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...

Samantha Speed: There were several punctuation, grammar, and missing word problems but it did not detract from the story. This story was very well done, enjoyable, and had an interesting enough plot.
