hole in the rainbow

it Begins

Holidays, the beginning of my end. It takes me nine months to recuperate from three months of insanity.  The time when the sun procrastinate it's awakening of the day. During that twilight time of night when the dark is deeper then the brightest star, that's when my personalities play. Holding my psych in bondage. Forcing it to witness despicable acts done by my hands but by their will.

A clear cool night. Seasonal, a Harvest Moon, October's end, my head was throbbing. I was salivating sulfur and drowning in the aroma of formaldehyde. All around me the colors spun. I grasped in vain onto a decaying rainbow. Hysterically ran head first down a hole between where red and orange used to be.   

 A glow,

 jack o lantern?

Halloween?

 This is my house but I don't recall decorating. Blood splatter everywhere, bloody hand prints on the wall. Pools of crimson, black gelled coagulated life's essence. I looked at my hands they were covered in the red sticky. The air was tainted with the echoes of begs for mercy. I had surreal visions of removing flesh.

A knock at the door.

Thoughts process in colored scenarios. Facial muscles twitch as if smiling was foreign and unnatural. My reflection, but not me looking back, instead it's a cold calculated sadistic child killer. He was sporting a smile flawlessly executed. His thoughts were slimy and sick.

I heard with a hint of sarcasm "ready?" not really a question

Using my body he opens the door where three words accost me.

"Trick or Treat!" 

There in front of me were two delicious morsels with huge smiles begging... 

I wanted to shut the door. Scream at them to run away. My soul was frozen. My voice no longer my own.

"I have treats, if you dare. In a great big bowl at the end of the hall near the bottom of the stairs." These were the words I spoke as I watched me herd the children deeper into the bowels of the house. 

"Mister your place is scary, how much further 'fore the treats." said the boy in the Power Ranger costume. 

I felt my teeth grind while straining the smile. Rage fueled my insensitivity. Quick movement, liquid in motion. The boy was turning a funny shade while dangling by his throat in my tightening grip. 

In her little fairy outfit she was quick to react. She wailed like a Banshee, one pitch below dog whistle . With my free hand I grabbed her arm jerking it so hard it snapped. Before she could register the pain I saw me smash her head into a wall, killing her instantly.

Back to the boy. Releasing the grip slightly. I felt adrenaline flush my system empowering me. I collected the tears fresh from his eyes then his eyes fresh from his head. As his scream began to form in his throat I ripped out his tongue and used it to gag him. Unable to turn away I couldn't help but be amazed at the amount of blood in such small vessels. 

The images, burnt into my forever.

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...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

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.

jaslynnash2015: I absolutely loved the story from beginning to end and I loved following each of the characters throughout their journey! Very captivating although there were a few grammar errors, but very captivating still! Can't wait for book 2!

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

rajastreet: I enjoyed this piece! I loved the treatment of time and the premise! Some of the wording seemed a little out of place, but easily overlooked for a good a plot.

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...
