My Weird Drive Home

It was a dark stormy night, Isn't that how all horror stories start? I was driving home from work eager to get home. I had to stay late at work. It was 8:00 and already getting dark out. I live out of town about hour drive.

After ten minutes of silence I turned on the radio. Nothing. I thought that was weird I always get a signal. I kept driving about 30 minutes or so into driving I start to notice some weird thing like: no other cars on the road and the trees looked different.

You may be thinking 'how do I know what the trees look like?” But I made this drive many times, I knew what every tree looks like but these trees looked different. I did not take a wrong turn, at least I did think I did.

I was driving for about a hour, Then I saw it, it was a deer with three antlers. Thinking to myself what the fuck I speed up wanting to get home. I start to see that the route I took is not going to get me home so I turn around. After a few minutes I see that it is not what I saw before . I keep going hoping that I can make it back to the highway. After 30 minutes I know that I'm hopelessly lost. So I pull over to try and use my GPS. It showed me I'm on a street called Black-Water. I never heard of it before.

It showed me to keep going down the road. So that is what I did. I sat there trying to get up my never to keep driving down the dark and lonely road. Then I hear a small taping sound. Tap... Tap... Tap.... over and over again. I checked my rear view mirror and saw a man. Well more like a outline of one. I could see no face or clothing. Just blackness.

I speed right out of there. Going as fast as my small car could take me. It was pitch black out I could not see two feet in front of me, even with my brights on. I then felt a big bump on the road. I knew I hit something. Not wanting to go out and check I started to drive away looking back I saw two glowing red eyes, staring at my car. The sky started to get lighter which was weird because my clock read 10:00 PM. By now the sky was a pinkish purple. It was so dam weird.

I just kept driving. Finally I started to see houses and trees I recognized I was back on my normal route I made no turns. Going 60 over the speed limit I made it home in record time. I get in and the time on the stove shows it is only 9:12, the time I usually get home at. Not caring about the time I get ready to go to bed. When I was laying down I heard a taping sound at the window Tap...Tap... Tap... Not wanting to look out the window of fear of seeing the black figure again I just closed my eyes tight and went to sleep.

elssxa: I love everything about this story. I want more...more...more. This author is superb. I am fascinated by his amazing work. I give him five stars.

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 ...

Dina Husseini: This story is wonderful. It made me quiver and shake and always turn around and see if there is anything behind me. I have enjoyed reading this story. It is marvelously written and you can feel the fear in the story. This one is unique in itself that it does not need any sequel. A...MA...ZING!!

ChristianHooks: D'graive is the conduit the whoooole time. Can you believe that? DAMN NATURE YOU SCARY! WHAT IN TARNATION

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.

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 -

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

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 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). ...

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.

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...
