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.

poosa13: I actually really liked it. Kept me interested all the way through and never really had a dull moment. But for some reason, I just didn't like Tanya. I'm sorry 😐 but I just don't. She makes my stomach hurt. But that's just me. Other than that everything was cool.

harry142018: 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.

Andrea Norton: This story was so well put together. It was suspenseful, the storyline flowed perfectly and it was full of interesting twists and turns. I found myself getting very involved in the story and read it in just a few hours. I'd really like to read more of this author's work!

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

Victoria Lovett: I really enjoyed reading this. The ending was a very nice twist. I never expected that. Overall this has been one of the best books I've read in a long while. Excellent work. I would buy this as a real book instead of just one on my phone if I had the chance.

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...

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.
