Mama Thinks I'm Crazy

By Taylor Anne Butler All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Prologue.

The shadows are always scary when I walk outside. No one sees them or hears them. They're in agony. Lost souls trying to get out. I always try to go outside my house in the day time, never at night. Hearing them is like hearing a piercing scream everywhere you go, even when you're sleeping. Sometimes I see them, they look at me. Hoping that I help them. When I sleep and wake in the middle of the night is when its worse or when I look out my window at night and I see their ghostly white faces.

When I was little I used to see them more so than now. I would be in class and the teacher would turn out the lights, they would come out of the shadows to talk to me. I always felt trapped. My mother never understood but my father did. He always said to try and help and they will go away. But every time I tried, the ghost would always come back.

13 years later at age 18 in Eichen House, and I still can hear them. The doctors keep telling me I am insane but I know that I'm not because even sane people hear voices inside their head they just don't listen to them, but these voices are not in my head, their from the outside world. No matter how hard I try I just can't seem to get them out of my head.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

pikagirl311: Katie Masters has definite skill when it comes to plot work and characters. The story is well-paced and pulls you along with the tide, keeping you hooked until the very end. The only reason I did not give it five stars across the board is due to a few minor quibbles with misspellings and such lik...

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.

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...

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

drainwater411: such a great read for me.
