The Seers of Other Worlds

By TheGalacattopian All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Why Am I Here?

White walls, white floor, white ceiling. People in white clothes. Long white corridors. Blank expressionless faces. The screams at night. It never stops, never changes.

Why am I here?

I don't want to be here.

I don't belong here.

You must understand that.

I keep telling them; the doctors and nurses that come to visit me. Keep telling them over and over again. But do they listen? No of course not. They're just here to do their job. To prod and poke at me and make assumptions on my mental state.

I'm trapped here. In this padded room, unable to move my arms as a jacket keeps them trapped. No one to come visit me as I have no family left that care about me anymore.

'Insane' they call me. 'No hope' of recovery. 'Lost in their own mind.' I can hear them on the other side of the door. Speaking to each other, as if I couldn't hear them. As if I couldn't understand them at all. Idiots.

They think I have delusions. Hallucinations of a warped reality. But they just can't see. Their eyes are blind to the other world. The anti-world. A world you would be glad to never know. But it's not the only one of its kind, not at all. The exact number I don't know but there are many. Each one as individual as our own world. Each one running parallel to us.


I guess you're here to hear me ramble on I suppose? Just like the rest of them in here; it goes in one ear and straight out of the other. You're just another doctor aren't you? The coat gives it away. I suppose you want me to start from the beginning then don't you? If that is what you're here for. Yeah? Blimey, I didn't expect that. Just who the hell are you?


Okay okay! There is no need to get defensive about it.


Right, okay, I'll get talking.

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.

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 .

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...

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

Deleted User: 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). ...

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

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Deleted User: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

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...

harry142018: 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.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

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...
