Chapter 1

Chapter 1 

I let out a yawn, I looked at my clock, it was pass three A.M., I could feel my eyes get really heavy. I let out another yawn as I quietly dragged my feet towards my dresser to get a pair of Pj's before I go to bed, and trying not to step on my dog, who was sleeping on the floor near my door. I open one of my dressers drawers and grabbed a pair of blue Pj's pants which had white poke dots on them and then I grab the Pj's long sleeves fluffy top, which is a nice light blue color, and quickly and quietly got dress trying not to make any noise because my step mom has super hearing, and I don't want to get in trouble for staying up late pass my bed time. I then sneak into my bed covers which are a nice cobalt blue. But at night my bubble blue painted walls looked dark grey bluish, almost a deep blue lake. I could feel myself becoming uneasy. 

"Maybe watching that last episode of Ghost Hunt was a really bad idea, I'm probably going to get zero sleep." I thought to myself.

As I closed my eyes, my other dog who was sleeping downstairs, began to bark and whine. I could hear my step mom open up her bedroom door which she shared with my dad. I didn't make a move as I watch as  she walked by my doorway and went down stairs to let Jack out, while Nicky popped her head up looking around the room, but quickly placed her head back down. Then I could hear my step mom tell Jack to come back in. I could hear her footsteps walking up the stair case at a steady pace. Then she came to my door, I quickly closed my eyes and didn't move and let myself have even breathing.  I could hear my door creak open and my step mom poked her head in to see if I am a sleep. She didn't notice anything because I shut down the computer before going to sleep. She then closed the door to my bedroom and went back to her bedroom. 

That is when sleep caught me in its web, but as soon as you close your eyes that is when the Nightmare strikes.

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.

Books17: This is my first book review.I found the story to be very intriguing.The beginning of the story starts and you are immediately thrown into wanting to know what will happen next, The action, or intrigue is established early, so there isn't the feeling of the story dragging on, or thinking about wh...

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

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.
