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.

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...

Keith R. Pharis Jr.: Thoroughly enjoyed the novel. I was drawn in and stayed intrigued throughout the entire story. It was full of drama and emotion. Very well written. It left me wanting more. I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone. It will certainly leave you wanting more and more. Excellent job.

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.

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

Evelyn Alonzo: I was up till three in the morning just so I could finish the story! It just really grabs your attention and you can't stop reading it at all! Lol great job, Nick! Can't wait to read your other stories!

warehalleyr: I usually have a difficult time staying interested in books long enough to actually finish them. This story however, had me so caught up that I'd only stop to sleep at 3am when my body would no longer allow me to keep my eyes open. What I loved about this was that I could actually imagine the rea...

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

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...

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.
