The Crimson Morsel

By Neonculr All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Chapter 1

It had been messy. Red was everywhere- the counter, the floor, the walls- and the sweet smell the thick redness released made me want to eat it’s entity at that exact moment. I only let myself get a small taste, that which had remained on my weapon of choice, but the thought of it tasting better when it was done cooking was nearly orgasmic.

I collected everything in a pan, careful not to spill even a drop, and spread it evenly. Looking at the moist surface I had just prepared glistening beneath the stained light bulb I was hit with a sense of awe, the aesthetically pleasing smoothness and thoughts of my past and future pleasure left me feeling euphoric. The oven beside me dinged, signaling it was finally preheated. After placing my creation in the oven at 350 degrees, I licked the excess redness from the bowl. Oh god, it was wonderful. I was torn, wishing I had left more but knowing I would have regretted it later.

As time dragged on and on I recalled the struggle of the time prior- running around almost all day, following and waiting, silently begging for my time to shine when I finally got what I wanted. I had almost missed it, too, the loud bangs and miscellaneous noises calling attention of others as I furiously tried to hide the evidence of my mistake. If anyone had seen I would have been in great trouble- something I was not a stranger to.

After an excruciating amount of time, the oven finally dinged. The intoxicating smell now filled my entire house, and I was completely unable to escape from it. Saliva threatened to drip down my chin, but each time I caught it I'd swallow it down, not wanting to make a bigger mess of the kitchen. I needed to eat my grand morsel, and I needed to now.

The steaming surface stained crimson nearly brought tears to my eyes. Baked to perfection; just waiting to be decorated. Finally, after all my struggling, it was ready.

I became so desperate I nearly dug in right when I placed the scalding pan on the counter, straight from the oven, but I feared I'd burn my tongue and not be able to fully enjoy the flavor I’d worked so hard to acquire. So, in mocking agony, I waited.

And waited.

And waited.

Finally, finally, when my morsel was cool enough, I took out my spatula and decorated the fluffy mass accordingly. Besides, a meal of this sort deserved to be decorated. It was now ready to eat, so I cut off a big chunk immediately. The thick, velvet morsel spread through my mouth, sliding down into my stomach as I shoved much as I could into my mouth for the next bite.

God, I love cake.

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!

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 -

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...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

Aloehas: When I first started this book, I could not put it down. The author gets you attached to these characters and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the story, and it's just amazing. I'm looking forward to what else she can do.

ahattar4096: The only part. Get annoyed of is how they ask soooooo many questions here and there and it just makes it a bit boring for me. Like so boring that even some I skip through and after I do it has nothing to do with what they will next talk about in the story. My opinion is tha mabye the questions th...

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! Its plot was so unique! It was a beautiful romance story with a mystery twist! I can't believe it ended the way it did!!!! There HAS to be a second book!! This needs to be published and made into a series!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...

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...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

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...
