Don't Go Into the Light

By Jessica_Smithson All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Chapter One: The Restaurant

A restaurant at a local mall. I was eating a steak, my back to the wall, occasionally catching a glimpse of people entering and leaving the locale. That was when a middle-aged Caucasian man stood up – and immediately collapsed. A woman, who was sitting next to him, kept trying to resuscitate him.

Four other people, including two waiters, rushed to help. But the woman just would not let us. She was maniacal. Leaning over the man, she kept yelling in his face: DON’T GO INTO THE LIGHT! IT’S A TRAP AND WILL ERASE YOUR MEMORIES, ERASE YOU! Before anyone could understand what was going on, she looked up, took out a bunch of pamphlets out of her pocket, and smashed them on one of the tables. ‘’READ IT! READ IT NOW BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!’’ she scanned everyone in the small crowd.

She then ran out of the restaurant.

The pamphlet read:

The light is a trap! Never go there. Even if you’re an atheist who thinks you are experiencing the tricks of your dying brain to make your descent into nothingness more comfortable. If you do go there, your memories will be erased. If you don’t go there you’ll be reborn with your memories intact! Stay in the dark! Religion is a trap, Karma is a trap! Save yourself! You have gone into the light countless times, that’s why you do not remember anything! Not because it’s your first time/your higher self remembers! Your other selves are GONE!

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done.

Andria M. Redlin-Author: "For those who play the game: you just lost." These words from "This is Not a Joke" pretty much sum up the plot. The story centers around three drug addicts who are playing the game of addiction, only to discover that it comes with a cost that is much higher than any of them can pay. ...

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...

Nicole Davis: I loved this. It was perfect in every way right down to ripping my heart out and force feeding it to me. Looking forward to seeing more from this author in the future.

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...

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.!!!

nightdrummer: Best story ever. The characters are real, flawed, people I relate to because although they have unbelievable talents they also fail, and get stuff wrong. This should be a series. Alpha is the most interesting hero and Martel's scary/real. I love Sunday.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

reads4fun: I like how the characters are in this story, Death seems sporadic and fun, while Dimitri seems to be more focused but they will argue over the littlest things.

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). ...

gunter1987: I just want to say here that this is my first review, but I really wanted to review this story. I apologize if I don't write English to well, I am French.Reading through the many science fiction stories posted here and other places in the world, I started to see a few linking themes: heavy-hande...
