Horror

Chapter 1

One thing you should know about it is that I loathe dogs, absolutely loathe them. My mom and older sister had volunteered to take of my grandma's Pomeranian while she was vacation one time. That white puffball would yap and yap so much I could never get enough sleep. My little sister was adopted like me, but she was so afraid of it she hid the whole time he was there. I managed to remedy that by keeping it in my older sister's room until he went home.

I also love cotton candy. Anytime my older sister gets some she has to share with me. She's a really nice girl but a bit of a scaredy cat. That brings me to another point.

I see things my sister can't. My parents had a really bad divorce, so my little sister had to stay with my dad while my mother, sister, and me had to move into an apartment. It was pretty nice until these things started showing up. They were at the house, sure, but they got really bad because my sister couldn’t help me anymore. Tall, shadowy beings will flit around us when they think we aren't looking, staring us down and scratching at us with their long, sharp claws. I don't have a word for them but I know bad things will happen if they touch us. People like me and my little sister have told stories about their families being taken by them and never being seen again. My mom doesn't even notice them but my older sister gets agitated when they're near, like she senses them too. Usually I can look right at them and they'll go away, or when they get really mean I’ll yell. But of course, I get punished for being too loud.

It got really bad one night. My sister had been watching horror movies with her friends at night, and that's sure to make them come. They were following her all night so she resorted to keeping all the lights on until she had to go to sleep at one a.m. The beasts were getting closer than they ever had before, creeping out of her closet and standing over her bed. She had resorted to using the childhood tactic of covering her face with a blanket and praying the things she couldn’t see would go away. When one reached toward her, I jumped from the bed and screamed as loud as I could, chasing them from her room to the hallway outside my mom’s room. "Shut up, Isabella!" My mom yelled. But it didn't matter. The shadows had vanished and my sister was safe again. When I jumped up on the bed she started patting my head and praising me. She smiled, "You're a good kitty."

SireLies: I loved the plot and the character of Surgio but I think the rest falls off the wagon for me. It jumps from one scene to the next in a frantic pace, and while I honestly don't mind fast pacing in stories, here it just was a bit too fast for me, ending the story all too quickly in my opinion,But o...

William Elliott Kern: Long story, the plot uncovered midway through the story. From beginning, the story was fast moving. Then dragged on for quite some time. The Author was good in describing her characters, their clothing, etc. but a lot of that disclosure distracted from the story moving fast.Not withstanding, the...

Lacey Eder: The stories remind me of the chilling 2 sentence stories on Reddit. Creepy, but not too scary and short. There were a couple of spelling errors throughout, which probably should've been taken care of beforehand. But, if this were available on Kindle Unlimited for $1-5, I'd consider buying it then.

Victoria Lovett: I really enjoyed reading this. The ending was a very nice twist. I never expected that. Overall this has been one of the best books I've read in a long while. Excellent work. I would buy this as a real book instead of just one on my phone if I had the chance.

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

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

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...

Alex Rushmer: Wow. I really don't think I came into this story prepared. This caught me completely off-guard, but not in a bad way. It was so bizarre yet so entertaining that I was drawn in right away, especially after I realized that the initial scene was only a fantasy. This story was a little too graphic fo...

Pam Lobato Ceja: The plot is interesting although for me the ending feels a bit rushed, since a lot happens in very few pages. I did notice a few grammar mistakes here & there, but nothing too noticeable.Overall, I enjoyed this greatly.

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...
