Twitch & Shiver

By Gladwrap_Society All Rights Reserved ©


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.


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.

The characters are rich and well thought out and the plot keeps you guessing all the way through to an imaginatively well exacuted showdown. Keep up the great work, I look forward to more of ...

kbranchflower6: It was so intricate! I loved it. She knew that what she was doing was stupid and did it anyway. It’s such an out of the norm book and I absolutely loved it! It really showed how we go back to things even if they hurt us. I really hope you will have more books for us to read!

SeanSavage: Good plot that moves fairly quickly. Time passage somewhat vague. but not indecipherable. Very good syntax, grammar and punctuation. The story flowed very well, however, the breaks between chapters and the time jumps tended to be slightly confusing at first. I could see where the author was going...

Aditya Harikrish: It had me on tenterhooks since the very first page. Excllently developed plot and characters. You've done an amazing job of building a fantasy world from scratch. Hats off to you!A sequel is a must.

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

Deleted User: What a story. It may be short and small but it is mighty and massive in creativity. However, I did not feel any romance in the story rather than a lot of horror. It was a great read and I cannot wait to see what this author has next on the agenda. Sometimes short stories have the best content and...
