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.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

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...

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!

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.

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

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.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

Anonymous: I've never before had the pleasure to read something so unique. It was so captivating, and so unexpected. I was surprised by the protagonist and the idea of a pizza shop becoming a post apocalyptic delivery system. Good plot and amazing story telling. There could have been many places for the st...

Andria M. Redlin-Author: POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD-READ WITH CAUTION: The book was an enjoyable read overall, with many surprises I wasn't expecting. There were only a few things that bothered me: 1.
