Flash Horror Story

Heart racing. Breath shallow. John waited. The closet around him was small, only just big enough to allow him to hide inside.

He could see the light shining underneath the door, with a red undertone from the carpet. John had to fight hard to keep his body still. He was trembling violently, terror permeating every cell in his body.

Downstairs, he heard it again.

John remembered when it came, the sounds from below. He had been working at his computer, writing a critical statement about the painting of Jesus on the cross, and then he heard them.

Screams. The most awful screams. Screams of fear and pain; screams of death.

He was alone now, so very alone. His wife, his daughter, gone now. The screams lasted for several minutes; a lifetime to experience.

Mary Gab: Like the story plot. I'm excited for the ending of the story.

HTroutt: Quite the interesting read! A wonderful concept and would make for quite the interesting Indie type movie! Similar to Vivarium, but with a less mundane story line. Love the cliffhangers, but would extra love a following book and possibly an explanation for who brought them there and why. Overall,...

Muskan: Such a great story but as usual ending is so sad...

Jeangray21 : A very different style of love story. The sci fi is great, and even though it's very dark, I enjoyed the romance aspect. In someway, the darkness makes it more realistic. Definitely not a tale search for a happy love story, but great in its own way

angelaz: I liked the plot of the story very much. Nice to read about the different angels and demons. That being said, I didn't get it why they were all of a sudden gone from hell. That could be a bit more build out in the storyline. I would definitely recommend this to other readers. O

Bookworm: I loved every single thing about this novel its so suspenseful and just fascinating!

Mehak: Amazing I had never read a beautiful story like this I am very sad to end it
