The First

         ‘I can’t let it catch me though. I have to keep running. I have to keep running. Just keep running! My heart is pounding. What’s that sound? Are those eyes? No, no keep running. Just keep running. Over there, light, run there. Yes, yes, good. Now run faster, towards the light. Don’t let it get you. Go go go, run faster! What was that? It grabbed me! Go faster!’

  “Huh. Strange.” The doctor looks through the papers on the clipboard that was previously hanging off of the writhing girl’s hospital bed. “She shouldn’t be waking from the comatose yet… she’s not even supposed to survive.” He chuckles darkly and got a syringe out of one of the nearby cabinets. “We’ll just have to fix that, won’t we, Clara?”

  ‘What’s going on? I can’t breathe! Gah, its back! Run faster, run faster! Please! Not now, I’m almost there! Go faster! It’s coming, go faster!’

  “Now Clara… stop fussing, or I’ll make it more painful. It’ll only hurt a bit.” He smirks a bit, sitting at the edge of the bed as he jabs the needle into the cap of a bottle of blood thinner, filling it. “Your parents will be so disappointed… their Poor Little Girl, stolen away in the prime of her life by a little joy ride. Too bad it’ll be your last…” he chuckles quietly.

  ‘Ouch! Oh god, what was that?! I have to make it, I have to! Wait… whats that light over there..? It’s really pretty.. and bright. Maybe I’m supposed to go to that one… No! I must keep moving! Go go go! Go…go… well maybe a short break couldn’t hurt…’

  He pulls the needle out of her neck, watching the heart monitor slow as he left the room, disposing of the syringe. No one would blame him, he’s the head of the Children’s Psychiatric Ward. He’d never hurt a child. He smirks smugly as he walked away before her heart stops completely. Clara Goodman, 14, death occurred in her comatose state after motorcycle accident on highway 47. He chuckled quietly. It was a believable story, he disposed of any evidence pointing it towards him, and her main doctor he assigned was blind as a bat. He easily could have mistaken blood thinner for her normal medicine. What a tragic series of events, not to mention the bills the family will have to pay. Too Bad.

What no one will ever know is she was the first of many.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

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...

Ahmad Momenai: it's so amazing to see the story build up, in each chapter a part would be started and made its way towards the main story and even sometimes i would doubt which story was the main story.i have read about half the story and it was worth every moment;i am a book worm and i have read LotR, Harry po...

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading.

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Barbara Zavela: Do you know the song, 'Imagine' by John Lennon?If you had a chance for a world like the one described in that song, would you grab it with both hands or turn away and reject it.This story pulls you in from the beginning with well-written scenarios. The author offers you the opportunity to bring y...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.
