Star Of The Show

By Susan O'Reilly All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Chapter 1

Blood and guts stream across the screen, I laugh uproariously. The only thing scary about this movie is the looks I’m getting from the couple in front they need to get a life. I mean seriously her hiding her head in his shoulder is a sure sign of first date - make him feel brave and strong, a load of crap.

I’ve long since stopped going to movies for anything to do with romantic notions. I like to immerse myself into the cinema screen and not be bothered by some idiot fumbling beside me. I mean if I want to do that the last place I’d do it is in the cinema. I like my full attention on the task in hand, if you know what I mean.

No these days I have bigger concerns when I go to the cinema, I like to go to horrors because if I can I like to re-enact what I’ve seen, I’m the ultimate copycat killer. Lazy in murder as I am in everything, screams and gasps are easily hidden with the inane crowd that flocks to these, I’m merely giving the survivors something they can remember for ever.

I usually go for people on their own, the loners that not many will miss, I had one who wasn’t discovered for three days. Three days, I haven’t been to that cinema since, I mean for fuck sake, clean the place. Today may be different as I can’t think of a more deserving couple to serve my needs than the ones in front. If they're not glaring at me to stop laughing, but laugh I must, there gazing into each others eyes instead of the screen. Sickeningly, simpering twats, turn my stomach more than the movie ever could.

Oh cool, only about twenty minutes left and it looks like the couple’s going to get it. Yeah, while their kissing straight through her head with the knife, he turns around and looks in horror as does his counterpart sitting in front of me. I decide to do a little twist because he really is an obnoxious prick, on screen he’s stabbed in the heart while he leans over to try and restrain the attacker. I go straight for the throat, great neither has the chance to scream, they collapse into each other, to the casual observer in the darkness they’ll look like there getting it on. I’ve no need to wait until the end I’ve had my happy ending, satisfaction and release coursing through my veins, heaven. I can’t resist taking a quick photo, a selfie with them behind me, these phones are great, I can upload and mess around with it to my hearts content when I get home.

I love the movies, I always end up the star of the show, always the villain never the hero.

I buy more popcorn and coke I have work to do when I get home. My screen may be smaller but the viewing more enjoyable.

warehalleyr: I usually have a difficult time staying interested in books long enough to actually finish them. This story however, had me so caught up that I'd only stop to sleep at 3am when my body would no longer allow me to keep my eyes open. What I loved about this was that I could actually imagine the rea...

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.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

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

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

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

Kayresia A. Bass: Loved it. Author did some insane research to bring this story to life. A little short for my taste, but an awesome story nonetheless. A few missing periods, and a few missing ending quotation marks, but not enough to take away from the story.Keep going. Add more detail to your future stories and ...

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

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.

I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

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.
