See Me

He isn't the boogeyman or the monster in your closet. He isn't the lone traveler you tell kids on camping trips.

No one knows where he came from but we all agree he is real, and he is a human. Those who claimed to have seen him say he has wide eyes and stringy hair but this is wrong. The truth is unlike what anyone says, nobody seen him before or at least lived to tell the tale.

Did you know he likes the mist in your bathroom that clouds the mirrors? you know that moments when you're washing you hair and squeeze your eyes shut so soap doesn't get in them is his favorite? He can peek through the curtains at your dripping wet flesh, and imagine what would happen if the water suddenly turn to blood. Would you even notice? Would you scream?

A Cheshire cat-like grin would stretch across his face as he watched you sleep. Blowing his cold breath against your neck; Could you guess he watched you every twitch and captured each scream in a jar to save for later?

Legend has it that when he 'lived' he preyed on the young, the weak and vulnerable.

No, not just women but men as well. He relishes how tough men acted when deep inside they were just as scared as anyone.

Who is he you're asking?

Well he is me.

Did you know...

I'm right behind you?

Don't bother turning around because I will not be there but I will always be watching.

Deleted User: This is an artfully-written horror story which deals with the most frightening monsters in the entire history of the macabre: teenagers. Indeed, the author captures the speech, relationships, and general highly-charged, petty, and competitive atmosphere of high school so well, that you would swea...

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...

duggsy: This kept me intrigued, I only intended on reading 1 chapter but couldn't stop until I'd read the whole thing. The only let-down were a few spelling mistakes hence the 3 stars but otherwise a great read.

: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

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 -

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...

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...

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...
