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.

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done.

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

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.

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

Carolyn Hahn-Re: I really liked this story! The writing was well done, and the plot was suspenseful. I couldn't stop reading chapter after chapter, on the edge of my seat! The characters were well developed, and true to form. Thank you so much for this wonderful read.

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...

Kastril Nomenclature: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...
