The Gentleman

Rain fell to the Earth surrounding a crimson haired female. Her cyan eyes began to over flow, the salty liquid mixing with the rain. She wondered what is the point of life? She took her pocket knife and dug it deep into her abdomen. She winced. Blood poured from the freshly opened wound. She felt eyes watching her. She turned with the little strength she had left and saw a man in fine attire. His onyx orbs burnt into her soul. He was tall and slickly looking. He raised his skeleton like arm and pointed at her. “To answer your question, life is full of dark times but that is what we cherish the most because it makes the good times even better.” Her body tensed at the sound of his gritty voice. Can her read minds? She thought. “With me now” he demanded as he started to walk off. Her body felt heavy. She wanted to scream but no sound would come out of the hole in her face. Her eyes became heavy and with that the darkness consumed her.

She awoke on a wooden table stained with a scarlet liquid. She noticed the gentleman from before standing it a dark corner of the room. “You finally woke up” he said taking his hat gloves and jacket off. He then rubbed his hands together. A sadistic grin grew oh his face. The room light up to reveal what looked like it was once an old classroom. The once white walls where yellow and peeling. The red headed female turned her head to see a blonde female lying half dead. “We’re going to play a little game, my dear.” He said putting rubber gloves on. The crimson haired female heart began to race. She began to kick and scream. All that let the man’s cracked lips was a chuckle. The blonde female began to stir. He walked over to her bent down “Hush now Missy, you’ll only make it worse” he said in a sweet hushed voice. She soon passed out. He turned to his new toy “There, no more disturbances” he said licking his lips. Something had stained this man’s heart but what had done it no one would ever no. He picked up a dirty scalpel and ran it along the edge of her already open wound. He dug his hand into her and moved it about, making her let out screams of pure agony. He pulled his hand out. Blood covered his entire body he let out a chuckle. He placed his lips upon the bloody mess on her torso and began to drink her blood. One he had his fill he stranded up and whispered “Goodnight” before he left the room he place his lips upon her forehead, leaving a scarlet mark. He left her to die. He smiled showing every one of his blood stained teeth. He cleaned himself up and went to work. This gentleman was a well respected doctor. The gentleman simply waits for the next lost soul to become his new play thing.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

drainwater411: such a great read for me. I loved how you had to figure out who everyone was and kind of got a sense of who they were throughout the book instead of just telling all about the characters in the beginning, it helped you really get to know them and grow a connection with them. the relationships bet...

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...

Shannon Rohrer: This is probably one of the most imaginative stories I've come across in a long time. You have hooking down to a fine art; every chapter has been as engaging as the one before it, the story unfurling in a way that is easy to follow and paced perfectly for each round of events or backstory. Lookin...

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view. It would be interesting to read more about these two - and the ghost-busters that inf...

IceWinifredd: Hello there!I have to say that i really enjoyed this story a lot! I'm a huge fan of the Zodiac Signs and the things that come with them or things that we can add to them in literature to make them more interesting. I never thought that Capricorn would be the bad guy. Maybe Scorpio or Gemini or Vi...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing.

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...

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.
