Mystery / Horror

Prologue

Her Breath came in ragged pants. Her legs were aching as she pumped them through the Forest. Behind her The Werewolf was gaining. She could hear the growls coming from behind. They were getting closer. Thorns cut through her legs and blood gushed from the wounds.

She kept on pushing and then..... a tree root lashed out of the mist and she stumbled and fell sliding onto rocks covered in Slime and scraping her knee in the process. She scrambled away from the forest as glowing eyes came closer.

The werewolf neared, a rabid hunger glowing in his red eyes.

"Go Away!" she screamed. It only smiled, fangs bared and ropes of drool hung from them.

"Thisssssssss wasssssss the Promissssssse Sssssssssophia." it snarled, air hissing out of his mouth. She could smell it's rancid breath.

"What Did I ever do to you?"

"you know Ssssssssnakie."

She shuddered at the nickname. He continued.

"the deal wasssss-" he was cut off by another yell from Sophia. He snarled and she screamed again.

"Help Me!!!!! This Rabid Wolf is going to kill me!!!!'

He growled at her and out of the mist grew black hooded figures with yellow eyes. The frosty air grew several degrees colder.

"Help me Uncle!" she pleaded. "For Ashley."

"Ashley is Dead. My daughter is dead. You killed her."

"Ssssssophia Thissssss issssss your lasssssst chancsse." The werewolf Hissed. She screamed and he drew his claws over her neck and she fell silent. Never to scream again.

"a pity Snakie. But this was the promise. Cure me or die. You chose the latter."

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). ...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...

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...

Krupa Kataria: the detailing is really awesome ....the characters, ur plots jst too Awsm ,m waiting for the further chapters please do complete it ...like m really craving for those ones ...great job with words too ..please complete the further parts ...

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

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 ...

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.
