The Hunger Within

Something inside of me pushes from within, raging to be released. I know what it wants, and I know that if I give in, I'll never be able to stop it. It's hungry, and it makes it known.

And I know what it's hungry for. I was very poor growing up, but my parents always seemed to put a meal on the table every night, without fail. And each night, it was the same thing. I thought nothing of it; it was food, and I was hungry.

It wasn't until I was 13 that I discovered the disgusting truth. The police came to my house one day, taking my parents away and putting me into a foster home. I found out that we had been eating human flesh.

When I turned 18, I got a job and ended up with my own apartment. Now, I'm 25. I live a secluded life. Most people think my lack of social interaction is a mental issue, and it is to some degree, though not in the way they'd think.

I hunger for my former meals. It terrifies me, to know that part me of wants it. When I pass by people in the supermarket, I can't help but think for a moment what it'd be like to taste it again.

I wanted friends and a social life for so long, but I knew the risk I would be taking. After a while, I took the risk.

The monster inside me used to be controllable for the most part, but when I go to clubs or spend time with friends, it tears at me from within.

I can't help it anymore. I can't hold it back any longer, I just... can't. I've made arrangements for my next meal. At the very least, tonight...

...I'll eat well.

Junko : I loved the whole book it’s so good and spooky 👻

Darcie Ruchti: I’m really enjoying this book. I was really hoping Liam wouldn’t have turned into a jerk. I do wish though it would’ve gone more into the Zev, and Hanna story.

Marie Duncan: So far so okay to me it is a bit confusing about the time line. A little to accepting about a mother shooting and killing there daughter.

WanderingStar: I loved this. I couldn't take my eyes off of this story. I just wished that Hannah would have would have had her ass handed to her lol. I want to read more stories from you! Maybe about Cole, Emma and Thomason and where they went. Excellent writing and story!

Ana Colon: This is a dark story so if you’re into a bit of violence this is for you. Reading it is like seeing a movie 🎥 like I had commented previously Dean’s character feels very realistic to his violent traits. The author does not drag the story and writes long juicy updates. Thank you for sharing your s...

Mercedes Merring: The first book was interesting and kept my attention. I don't usually leave a review. Especially when I haven't read the whole book. But this series has the pull that makes it hard to put down. Keep writing.... I want to see where this leads and how it ends.

arianamariu: Really enjoying the storyline
