Chapter 1

Lucy worked at the pizza place near the old abandoned Carnival Grounds. One night Lucy's friends and she went to the old Carnival grounds to snoop around and have fun. Lucy and her friend Katie walked around with their boyfriends Tom and Alex for about an hour. What they didn't know was these carnival grounds belonged to people. People different from any normal human and there was a lot of them living on the grounds.

One of these people was a boy named Tate, He was the most evil of them all. Tate ran past them through the shadows, Lucy turned around quickly and shined her flashlight into the dark foggy shadows. " Lucy you okay?" Katie asked as she placed her hand on Lucy's left shoulder. 

" I heard something" Lucy responded and spun around as a glass bottle clanked behind her and Katie.
"what was that?" Katie looked to the boys.
"girls it's just rats calm down, don't get your panties all in a wad" Tom joked and the group continue walking. Tate followed them carefully guiding them to the Carousel, Tate's favorite ride.
"hey guys check out this thing" Alex exclaimed excitedly and climbed on one of the old horses. 
"Ew Alex get off of that thing" Katie said and walked over to it, Tom took her hand and convinced her to just get on. Lucy also climbed up onto one of the horses just like the others. Tate was so excited and he flipped the switch turning the carousel on. 
" Ahhh what's going on?" Lucy yelled to the others and the carousel began to move and the music played. Lucy looked around to see who turned it on and she caught a glimpse of Tate standing in the middle smiling evilly.
"guys who turned this damn thing on" Katie screamed as the thing sped up. Tate flipped the switch back off and the carousel slowed down and stopped. Lucy's friends and her got off the carousel and ran trying to find the exit. 
"What the hell is going on, where's the exit?" Alex yelled as he kicked a bear bottle.
"Alex calm down we just got to keep looking" Katie said as she grabbed his shoulder.
" I saw someone" Lucy admitted and looked at them. 
"what..who?" Tom looked at Lucy surprised as he spoke.
" a boy at the carousel" Lucy said " maybe he can help us" Lucy looked to Alex and Katie. Alex took off running for the carousel and the others followed. 
" Alex stop please stop" Lucy caught up to Alex as they reached the carousel.
"where is  he?" Alex questioned angrily. Tate smiled and whistled a soft quiet tune as he sat down on a crate and played a black violin. The four of them jumped and turned around with Tate's first note.  Tate looked up at them with a glowing evil smile as his friends knocked the four teens out with beer bottles.

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 -

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). ...

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.

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

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...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

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...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...
