Pitch Black

The room was pitch back, but she had learned to maneuver around in the dark, so it no longer bothered her. In fact, she was nearly as proficient in the dark as she was in daylight. After she had learned to deal with the dark, there was an air about it that fascinated her. Something about it always seemed to just draw her in until she was completely ensnared.

She supposed that dark things had always drawn her in. After all, if they hadn't she would never have met him, nor would she be here, with her mission.

With that thought, she stopped, and quickly changed the course of her thoughts, she didn't want to think about what she was about to do.

Not thinking about it made it easier – not that it was ever easy, no matter how it looked to those outside. She had just learned how to do it quickly and efficiently, and deal with her feelings later when she was alone and safe. Feelings just got in the way, and drew her into situations that she never should have been in, in the first place. That was why she was teaching her self to remove all feelings, it made life easier.

With her thoughts and feelings safely closed off she snuck into the bedroom, being careful not to make a sound. She didn't want to wake the sleeping figure on the bed, not just yet anyway.

She moved across the room and stared down at the face of the man on the bed, examining the little that she could see from the strip of moonlight that came from the window. She supposed he could be what one would almost consider handsome, with his dark hair and smooth pale skin, all except for that thin scar across his throat. She didn't know why he was the target, but then again, she didn't ask. It wasn't her place to, she just did as she was told, and she was told to come here.

She got onto the bed, straddling him, letting her darker side take over. It was easier not to fight it. It was what she was trained for.

"Wakey, wakey, my dear," she whispered into his ear.

She felt his body jolt to wakefulness beneath her. She could just see him staring up at her, and she could tell that he knew exactly why she was there. There was something almost touching about him knowing that his demise was coming, and yet he did nothing to stop it.

She couldn't help herself as she leaned down and kissed him. She let his tongue slip into her mouth and explore her. In the midst of their very heated kiss she pulled out her knife and slit his throat. She could almost feel it as the life force fled his body, as she pulled back from. It was with tinge of regret that she watched his blood flow onto the leaf print sheets.

Jennifer Sibley Jannise: So, I originally read the book because my daughter asked me to. However, I read it in 2 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is well written and thought out. If the author writes and publishes any more books, I would definitely read them.

Barbara Zavela: Do you know the song, 'Imagine' by John Lennon?If you had a chance for a world like the one described in that song, would you grab it with both hands or turn away and reject it.This story pulls you in from the beginning with well-written scenarios. The author offers you the opportunity to bring y...

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...

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! Its plot was so unique! It was a beautiful romance story with a mystery twist! I can't believe it ended the way it did!!!! There HAS to be a second book!! This needs to be published and made into a series!

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.

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...

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.

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.

Aloehas: When I first started this book, I could not put it down. The author gets you attached to these characters and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the story, and it's just amazing. I'm looking forward to what else she can do.

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.
