It Wasn't Me

"No! Stop!" I scream, trying to struggle free. But my hope for freedom led to no avail. I was trapped. They had me cornered.

"Please! STOP!" My begging turned into a bloodcurdling scream once the knife plunged into my stomach. The pain was intense, yet I couldn't help thinking that it was such a shame it didn't kill me right on the spot. They missed my heart, on purpose, even! How rude, and after all this there's even more torture I have to go through?! Why couldn't I just die and have it be over with? Anything... Anything would be better than being here. Alone..

I stood up and ran, grasping my stomach, faster than I had ever ran before. They don't follow me. But their eyes are always watching me, never leaving. I've already taken my punishment for a crime I never even committed! I don't even deserve any of this! I cried out in frustration and turned the corner of the dark hallway, only to find four different paths. Where will my feet take me? I decide to wander down the far left corridor, perhaps I would have some luck for once. Twists and turns every which way I went. My stab wound wasn't making these turns any easier. Just when I was about to pass out I came to the end of the hall and heard.. Another scream. Only not that of my own. The screech came from the unmoving body of my sister. Blood rained down from still face, frozen in terror.

"No.." Tears started rolling from my eyes. Her arms and legs were bent in awkward places, the left leg barely hanging on.

Even though her body lay still the screams reverberated around the room. I couldn't control my sobbing from that point, first they torture me, but now my sister? I reach out for her hand. Her eyes quickly snapped open and locked on me. Those silver eyes. The ones that I looked up to every day, contorted with anger.

"TRAITOR!" She screamed, lunging for my arm. I retreated, escaping with a bleeding scratch.

"N-no... Celeste, NO!" I scrambled backwards to the exit, unable to avert my gaze from hers.

"TRAITOR!" My sister screamed over and over.

"What are you talking about?! I never did any of this to you! Do you hear me? It wasn't me! CELESTE IT WASN'T ME!" I finally get to my feet and dash all the way back to the other corridors. Panting, I look back. Nothing. No sign of Celeste having followed me. No screams. Dead silent. I only felt the hairs on the back of my neck rise.

"Why..?" A trembling voice spoke from behind me. I spun around. Down the rightmost passage was a woman in nothing but a tattered nightgown. She, too, was drenched in blood.

"Why did you do this to us?" She started to sob.

"M-mom...?" I shook with fear as she lifted her head. Blood ran down her face where tears should have been.

"Why did you hurt me... Why did you hurt US?!" I turned to go down a different way, but my path was blocked by two more figures.

"Not my little girl! No!" The body of my bloodied father limped closer.

"Sasha? Ouch.. Sasha..." My best friend Cory walked towards me. Still wearing his casual jean jacket, only it was torn and painted in crimson. That was the last straw, I couldn't bear this anymore. I screamed and ran back, back to that awful room I came from. They could have me now, I didn't care. A thought lingered in the back of my mind. A confused thought of joy and sadness. I shoved it away. Back in the room, I quickly closed the heavy metal door shut with one last cry of "TRAITOR!" from Celeste. No use, I could still hear their dying cries in the depths of my mind. I held my head and screamed again. They only looked at me with amusement.

Then I saw it. My knife. On the counter. A mere couple feet away from me. "Thank you." I said. "It was nothing." A familiar voice answered me. I ran the smooth blade in my hands, realizing what I had to do. The door creaked open. "Ouch, Sasha... That really hurt." Cory was standing in the doorway. I only smiled as I walked up to him. A giggle escaped me as I slid the knife up his throat slowly. I savored the sound of his dying words, his last breath. One by one, each of them came and went. It feels odd to say I enjoyed it. They told me it was my turn now. It was unavoidable, after all, and I must follow what they say. I take one final glance at my knife. It shone beautifully in the dim cave light, even though the blood covered a good half of the blade. Gorgeous. Just like her eyes. Of course that's why they had to go first. Nothing could be more beautiful as her eyes. I then slit the knife over my throat. For the first time I felt Them slip away from me. They were gone, at last! Peace, quiet. Freedom. The last tear slid down my cheek as I closed my eyes and drifted into an everlasting sleep. After all, I had nothing to worry about. It was impossible that I could have killed them on my own free will. It wasn't me...

Khuston: I have read Derek Smith's Vincent Macleod: Agent of T.R.A.C.E and I was completely drawn to the idea and story line. It was't a typically super hero book, and the detail I found described everything fully. I could picture the events happening in my head as I read the story. At the end, I found my...

DennisT: This is an excellent story by an author who writes very well. the only problem areas that I see relate to proofreading and editing. All of the stories by Vanessa are excellent, and I have read them all more than once. I had hoped that they would be better edited and proofread on this site, but it...

nicolehodgek: It was very interesting the sex like did get more intense but I would of hoped she gave her virginity to at least Aaron or Dylan before she left to save them both. But as far as that goes I'm interested in reading the next book, if there is more to come.

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

mrh: This interesting take on the Harry Potter series fascinated me from line one on. I am in love with this tale and its characters and cannot wait to read the next chapter. I look forward to more soon.When can I expect the next chapter? I am so excited to read it!

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

tyleroakleyfan: thank you for writing this story I loved it. it was great I enjoyed every minute of it I couldn't stop reading you did a fantastic job. Thanks for killing ron he was starting to piss me off. he was being a dick. I love that you made it a gay love story its about time someone did. love it great job.

Brie Lundy: I have never read a story like this before. It was riveting. It kept me captive. Once I started it I couldn't stop until it was finished. 10/10. I need more of this book. They need to find the Wizard!!

Renae Russell: The story was very will written, It held my interest, there was some of the story line that could of been a little bit more, but i tell my friends about this author well done.

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.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...
