Horror

Chapter 1

"You're a good friend, Lena."

"I wish."

"Don't beat yourself up about it." He wiped his hands dry.

 Lena shuffled cautiously and watched him. She knew his acumen in situations like this made him superior, but it also made him predictable. If she could play along long enough for him to let his guard down; she would have a chance. By the second, however, the task became more and more arduous. He was good mood. These moods were often ephemeral though.

"Shall we?"

Lena smiled and took his outstretched hand.

"There's a corner store we passed on our way here. Hopefully, they have some of your favorite soda pop."

She needed to act normal, "no one calls it soda pop anymore."

"I still do." He chuckled lightly.

"Yeah, because you're old," she rubbed the back of her neck, "and from New Jersey."

"Hey, I love-"

"Excuse me. Sorry to bother you both, but I'm looking for my son, Ross."

She was decrepit woman with a cane and dark clothing. She held a picture of Ross, looking between them with hoping they knew something.

They did. 

They knew all about Ross.

"He left the house yesterday and never came back home. I'm worried he is in trouble with Bonds, again. Please help me find him."

He squeezed her hand. Lena looked past the old woman at the empty street.

"I am sorry, ma'm. We have not seen your son."

"Are you sure?" Her voice seemed to grow younger. It was steady and strong now.

"Yes. We-"

She raised her hand slowly and mumbled unknown words under her breath. A second later, the horrible sound of his scream filled the air. He crumbled to the ground, holding his hand. It was twisted unnaturally. He rapped the ground until his other hand until it bled. 

"KILL HER!"

Lena took several steps away. She moved her hand toward her.

"No. You do not understand, I was going to kill him. I was going-"

Air ceased to move through her lungs. Lena clutched her neck, scratching in an frenzied effort to let oxygen in.

 She moved her hand back to him and slowly closed her fist. She could hear the sounds of his bones grinding and snapping in his bloodied hand as if twisted. His skin tore and blood escaped coloring the ground red. Then it came off.

The true sound of horror was all Lena heard as her vision blurred. 

The woman towered over him, "I hate liars."

She balled her fist and yanked it back as if there was an imaginary rope around his neck. His head flew off. 

"Stand." The woman looked toward Lena.

She stood groggily. The woman ambled toward her with a scowl.

"Stupid girl. You should have ended him when his back was turned."

Lena, slumped and drained, tried keep her eyes open. 

"You... k-killed him." She breathed each word out harshly.

"Yes I did."

She sighed and stuck her hands in her jacket. 

"And you are next."

"You made me... scratch my neck up. That is just rude."

Lena pulled out her revolver. She pushed it against the woman's forehead.

"You think that will kill me?" The woman smirked.

"Yes." Lena pulled the trigger. The woman's head snapped back followed by her body. She struggled to keep her balance as she wiped small droplets of blood off her face.

"I need to get out of the city."

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...

Deleted User: This is an artfully-written horror story which deals with the most frightening monsters in the entire history of the macabre: teenagers. Indeed, the author captures the speech, relationships, and general highly-charged, petty, and competitive atmosphere of high school so well, that you would swea...

dragonswilleise: I loved this book, it was nearly impossible to put down from start to finish. It was fast passed without being overwhelming and slowed down where needed. Overall this was an amazing novel that I will definitely recommend to others.

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...

Clarissa: Very atmospheric and descriptive language, with good character development. This is a complex and interesting story - definitely worth a read.

DarkSide Consulting: This was the first book I have read on the Inkitt app so far. It had me hooked from the start. I loved the first person dialogs and how the Creepypasta Characters fit perfectly in their scenes and how they acted and reacted. Don't worry about the grammar in a story like this because I wouldn't...

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). ...

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 -
