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.

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!

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...

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

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

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

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

borkarprasad: Nicely laid story. Needed a little more ghost and Raven conversations. Initially, Had everyone on suspect list but satisfied by the precision to capture the killer. Waiting for more Raven and Cade adventures.

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...
