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!

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!

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 -

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...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

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.

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...

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!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

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.

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 ...

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

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

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...
