Tentacle

Thriller / Horror

It will start again

I loved midnight walks. I had a lot of time to clear my mind. the empty streets weren't a downside either. People often stare at me and I liked the vacantness. But one night, that night is the reason I don't go out any more.

I was walking when this person who literally comes out of nowhere grabs me by my shoulders and starts to shake me.

"you have to help me! I finished this 10 times but I keep coming back!", he pleaded and I realized his eyes were basically bulging out of his face.

He's probably a druggie,  is the first thought that came to my mind before I forced him to sit down on the curb. Since he was basically a twig, it was easy to push him down. I continued my walk but the second I turn and face the direction I was walking in, a needle jabs my neck and the world around me blurs.

I wake up with a bag over my head and my arms tied behind my back. When the bag is lifted, I see five other people also tied up, and three people with black masks and guns in hand. My heart immediately begins to race just by looking at the guns.

"We have simple task for you five lucky piggies", he chuckles with an evil voice.

I reconize one of the tied up men as the guy who stopped me in the street. It's his fault I am dragged into this!

The captor continues, "all you have to do is stand up, walk through that door", he says pointing to an oak door, "And bring whatever is inside."

sounds simple enough, so why dot they do it?

"you first" says the captor and he pulls up the druggie by his color. he breaks the cord around his hands and he pushes him towards the door. He raises the gun making sure that the druggie doesn't try to run for it. The second the druggie opens the door, his screams fill the room. I cringe beause his blood curling screams echo in the room. The captor points at me and says, "You."

I'm hoisted up and thrown at the door. I stare at his and wonder whats behind it. I cautiously put my hand on the knob and twist. Nothing yet. calm down.

the second I open the door, an octupus  tentacle wraps around my waist and pulls me in.Instinct kicks in and I bite the tenacle and it drops me. I grab whatever  is infront of me and i run back to the door, but it's locked. InoI

The tentacle comes back and I scream.




I wake up with a bag covering my head and when it's lifted, I see five other people tied up, too.

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 ...

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

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.

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 -

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...

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.

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.

ahattar4096: The only part. Get annoyed of is how they ask soooooo many questions here and there and it just makes it a bit boring for me. Like so boring that even some I skip through and after I do it has nothing to do with what they will next talk about in the story. My opinion is tha mabye the questions th...

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

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...

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.

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!
