Twitch & Shiver

Horror

Chapter 1

No one dared pass the line. The invisible line. The one that separated her from the rest of the world.

The one-way glass, the thick concrete slabs, triple locked steel doors, chains, straight jacket, cushioned walls and the most advanced cameras watching her every move.

Every breath.

Every shiver.

Every twitch.

Everything.

But even it wasn't enough. It never would be. The employees of the institute would never get a wink of sleep knowing she was still alive.

Still breathing.

Still shivering.

Still twitching.

Not still.

The various chains shackling her to the same spot she had been strapped to five years ago. Where the straight jacket bonded her hands securely behind her back. Her head facing the ground and the mussel firmly tightened to her face. Forced on her knees, her legs bound to the floor. 

It was said if you ever passed her territory, made her mad or merely glanced at her she could bring a wrath worse that anything imaginable. She could make the worlds strongest man fall to his knees beginning for mercy. Make you delusional, see things that have forced people to take their own live the terror was so unbearable.  

All this without evening moving.

Not a sound.

Not a twitch.

Just her mind.

A mind that could send you to a place worse than hell itself.

She was always...Different. It wasn't as noticeable when see was a young child, she just acted odd. Not like the other children, playing in the park, swinging on swings, laughing, smiling, being normal. 

There was an air around her. Something that sent chills down your spine and goosebumps rise on your skin. 

Through out our lives we are told to be different. Not to follow the crowd and to make a change in the world. 

We're told to be different.

She was different.

But not in a good way.

And for all eternity she would stay, strapped to the floor of a cell, of a mad house. Never to move, not while she still lived. 

Still breathing.

Still shivering.

Still twitching.

Or so they thought.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

drainwater411: such a great read for me. I loved how you had to figure out who everyone was and kind of got a sense of who they were throughout the book instead of just telling all about the characters in the beginning, it helped you really get to know them and grow a connection with them. the relationships bet...

Deleted User: This is an artfully-written horror story which deals with the most frightening monsters in the entire history of the macabre: teenagers. Indeed, the author captures the speech, relationships, and general highly-charged, petty, and competitive atmosphere of high school so well, that you would swea...

Shannon Rohrer: This is probably one of the most imaginative stories I've come across in a long time. You have hooking down to a fine art; every chapter has been as engaging as the one before it, the story unfurling in a way that is easy to follow and paced perfectly for each round of events or backstory. Lookin...

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view. It would be interesting to read more about these two - and the ghost-busters that inf...

I'm a huge fan of the Zodiac Signs and the things that come with them or things that we can add to them in literature to make them more interesting.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing.

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

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.
