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.

Shelley Miller: The ideas and the set up and this are amazing! The feel of the story goes from science fiction to horror to suspense all in a big, thrilling ball. I really like your character so far and her powers and the idea of the ark being a person. The world is intense and gritty and clever as well. While a...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

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

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

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.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

Jason78: Be careful, once you open this book you won't want to put it down. A dark comedy horror that has plenty of twists and turns that Keeps you guessing. Fantastic book from start to finish, loved the story and can't wait to read the next one.

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 ...

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: 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). ...
