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.

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.

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 ...

Hemanth Thiyagarajan: MA'AM the story was really good as well as the plot and your catchy writing style.Would i were give a rating it would 9 out of 10A few drawbacks were that you hinted about the upocoming danger in the nd of each chapter of the beginning i felt that it was not necessary only once you could have put...

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.

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). ...

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...

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!

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...
