Horror

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.

Debby : I'm glad I finally got around to read it. I like the whole unanswered question of what happened to his parents. I didn't know horror was posed to make me feel sad at the end and not scared. I seriously enjoyed the book. Yes most paragraphs had both characters talking, and those times I had to rer...

Greg: This is a well thought out horror story. The twisti-turns, the creativity, and spot-on dialogue are movie-worthy. It's a perfect horror story that no horror reader can put down. If I were a publisher, I'd look you up.

nikmariecav: The story started out strong and I couldn't put it down but then around the middle of the book it started to lose me and it was a struggle to finish the book. I do see the potential for this story to go far but I wasn't able to keep my attention all the time.

Deleted User: I guess there will not be any sleep tonight. There has to be a reason this story is out. The reason is that it is so good that it needs a part two and maybe even a part three.
