The Nightmare with Emerald Eyes

Alice Anonymous

You know, looking back, I never was that great with women. I just never had that gift that some guys seem to have, I couldn't really connect with women on a social or romantic level. For the longest time I was almost obsessed with finding that special girl, the one who would be with me every night, by my side.

But now, I've found her. And all I want is for her to leave me alone. Not because I'm shallow, or because I'm tired of her, but because I fear for my life.

We first met at a bar, I'm ashamed to say. Not many alcohol-initiated relationships last, but what can I say, I was desperate. My friends had all gone out for a drink, and I decided that coming along might provide a valuable opportunity to meet someone.

First few hours were pretty average. No real attention, just drinking. And then I noticed her. She had long black hair, and the fairest skin I'd ever seen. She was wearing a modest dress, a sort of reddish colour. But what I notice most of all, even from a distance, were her eyes. The most beautiful green I had ever seen in my life. Not to sound corny, but those eyes alone were enough to make any guy swoon.

She was the kind of girl that every guy in the bar wanted to get with. She wasn't slutty, which just made her all that much more appealing. Most importantly, dear readers, she was staring at me.

Now I'm not the most attractive guy. I'm not ugly, but I'm not anything special really. A guy like me would never have had any chance with a girl like this in conventional circumstances. As it happened, these weren't conventional circumstances.

We made eye contact for a few seconds, before she smiled and began to walk towards me. Now this was strange, considering that in most situations it's the girl that wants you to approach her. I'm not an authority on courtship, but for a girl like her to walk over to a guy like me is unusual.

So within moments she's approached me, and without hesitation extends her hand.

"My name's Alice." Her voice had a smooth sound to it, not sultry, just a sort of relaxing tone. 

I awkwardly introduced myself, taking her hand and shaking it as gently as I could. She smiled and introduced herself to my not-so-sober friends, almost all of which tried to hit on her at some point through the night. And yet, against all odds, it was me she picked. I couldn't believe my luck, and I certainly wasn't doing a great job of flirting with her. But she seemed to not mind, and was making conversation masterfully.

It was probably one of the most overt interests anyone's ever shown in me. After less than half an hour she had openly stated that she liked me, words I had seldom heard said. After another hour I was wasted, and only then was it that I noticed that she hadn't touched a drop of alcohol. She asked me if I needed a ride home, but I told her that I lived considerably further away than was convenient. 

She proposed I spend the night at her place, words that make every man whimper with anticipation. I told my friends I was leaving, and after no small amount of smart-assed comments, they allowed me to leave. 

The drive was short, but to a part of town I'd never been before. It didn't look that great, kind of a poor neighbourhood, but I was willing to put up with whatever lodgings a girl like this would provide.

She pulled up in front of a pretty run-down place, but my house was nothing special either, so who was I to judge. 

I was stumbling pretty bad, so she took my arm and led me in. Her house was dark, and she didn't bother to lead turn any lights on. She just led me straight into her bedroom. Her bed was a barren thing, no sheets to speak of. Didn't know how she could bear it in as cold a winter as this.

I wasn't used to this situation, so like the drunken "Gentleman" I asked if she had a couch I could spend the night on. She chuckled, and kissed me. It was a strange sensation, I'd kissed before, an I new the feeling, but this was different. I chalked it up to the drinks, but looking back the coldness of her lips and tongue was unlike any other women I'd been with.

I won't go into too much detail, but that night was one I'll never forget. For starters, she was not a conventional girl. You know the kind of girl that wants you to do something a little unusual, like spanking or something? Try being with a girl who wants you to strangle her within an inch of her life. I wouldn't have even done it were it not for the fact she was so demanding. I had trouble maintaining my "enthusiasm" if you get my meaning.

The night continued in this perverted way until I fell asleep exhausted, she was still wide awake.

I'll tell you more in the next chapter, but let me warn you, reader...

...what follows is dark.

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

shotgundriver: As with all horror fiction, the reader must be able to suspend disbelief to digest this story. Fortunately, the first-person style of the story is so casual, and the protagonist, Ashley, so familiar on many levels, that I found myself sacrificing sleep to stay up and read, as if I was anxiousl...

Pam Lobato Ceja: The plot is interesting although for me the ending feels a bit rushed, since a lot happens in very few pages. I did notice a few grammar mistakes here & there, but nothing too noticeable.Overall, I enjoyed this greatly.

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

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view. It would be interesting to read more about these two - and the ghost-busters that inf...

Deleted User: This is an artfully-written horror story which deals with the most frightening monsters in the entire history of the macabre: teenagers. Indeed, the author captures the speech, relationships, and general highly-charged, petty, and competitive atmosphere of high school so well, that you would swea...

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). ...

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 -

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...

ritafullerton: This book had me hooked at the beginning. I loved the premise of the book. The grammar was a bit off. But the book was overall good. I am not sure if this is the authors first book but I look forward to seeing more from this author.

Dina Husseini: To be honest I never knew you could make a fantasy this scary. I really enjoyed reading your story. At first to be honest, it was a bit boring but then it got so interesting and fun and (also you even scared me at times). I would really love to see this story on the big screen. It does deserve sc...

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...

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.
