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.

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

pikagirl311: Katie Masters has definite skill when it comes to plot work and characters. The story is well-paced and pulls you along with the tide, keeping you hooked until the very end. The only reason I did not give it five stars across the board is due to a few minor quibbles with misspellings and such lik...

: 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.

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

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 -

cicheah: Very well-knit story which sustains one's interest from beginning to end. Most enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

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.

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.
