Nightmares

We all have that one rough night, right? Maybe even woken up one night crying, but having no idea why? I have these a lot, myself, and honestly girl, I think I’ll go nuts if I don’t tell someone.

That’s where you come in.

I know I know, I should talk to a therapist if it’s really bugging me, but I mean c’mon, those things don’t really work now a days, just take their paychecks, half pay attention and tell you you’re fine. Besides, we’ve known each other since Pre-K, and I trust you. Just hear me out, Yeah?

Right, so, these dreams all started about three months ago. At least, I hope they’re dreams, I mean, I’m not one for superstition and you know that, but I just, I don’t know. Anyway, it started off mild, you know? Normal nightfrights, like getting chased by a giant spider, or trapped in a room full of clowns who want to eat your soul or something. It didn’t really bug me, not really, I just thought it was my imagination letting loose a little, because I always have been a Horror Junkie.

It was only when it started happening nightly that I became concerned.

I started noticing a few things too. Small scratches on my arms, a bruise on my leg. But, me being my rational self, just thought that because of my nightmares I was tossing more in my sleep, and chalked it up to that. And girlfriend, let me tell you, they stung, and I was thankful I didn’t have a man at the time. What kind of guy was gonna stand getting slapped every five minutes while they’re trying to sleep? So anyway, they started getting worse. They started having people I know, that have passed, in situations before they died. You know Martha, the little girl that went missing when we were kids? I had a nightmare, where I was being drowned by a man in a ski mask, my dark hair going everywhere. But I don’t have dark hair, she did, and in the local paper they said the crook had drowned her in a Motel Bathtub.

Unfortunately, she wasn’t the only one I experienced.

There was Jesse, and even Brian. Oh God, I couldn’t control myself when I saw what Brian saw… or at least, what I think he saw. No one ever found his body, remember? I can honestly say that I didn’t want to exist, I felt so dirty. You remember what happened to him, yeah? The sicko admitted to not only using him while he was alive, but also after he had gutted him and removed his eyes…. Ugh, I can’t say anymore, or I’ll puke…

After that, I tried not to sleep. Unfortunately, one can only deny nature for so long, and I eventually fell asleep. That night… was horrible, one of the first nights I managed to suppress my dreams. I woke up and felt the need to vomit, crying at the same time. The following nights have been the same, and I can’t keep anything down. I’m scared, and I can’t keep anything down. I feel… I am going to die soon. You should see the scars, and the bruises… not to mention my stomach is digesting itself. Huh? Why are you crying? Oh dear…. No, this isn’t a nightmare.

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

ronaldpolk: I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed this story. Yes there were times I thought to put it down and start another, but some of the characters called me back. The pace was appropriately slow in some places and engaging in others. I related to Steve and Ron, all characters had just the right amou...

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

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.

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

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.

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

It does deserve sc...

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...
