The Darkest Place

I looked around the room I was standing in. When I was locked in the blank walled chamber it was well lit, I wasn't sure what exactly was lighting the room but whatever it was, it was going out. The room, slowly getting blacker and blacker was filling me with a sense of paranoia and fear of which I've never felt. Soon it was pitch black, I couldn't even see my hand in front of my face. I started feeling things brushing up against me, like bony fingers enticing me into something that no man should ever discover. The darkness continued to advance; it advanced so far I could no longer feel where my body was. I had lost all my senses because of the darkness. It wasn't even just a lack of light anymore, it was a complete absence of anything that provided comfort. I started feeling like I was floating away. The feeling of no gravity was terrifying me, the screaming that was going on in my own mind was deafening because of the silence in the room. I could hear the blood pumping through my veins, I could hear my muscles tighten when I moved myself, but I couldn't tell where I was moving them. I felt a tug on each of my limbs, as if something was pulling me in all different directions. Then the pain, as if the puny creatures suddenly turned into huge oxen pulling my body apart into pieces, drifting aimlessly and now separate into the void that I have learned to hate and love at the same time. All the pain, yet I know this is truly my home... It's where I belong.

"Honey!?" She screamed, shaking me in my bed. It took me a minute to re adjust myself from what I had just left, soon I could make out the image. I was sitting up in my bed.

"Are you having those nightmares again?" She asked.

I tried to tell her that the nightmares were back, but my mouth wouldn't open, I tried moving but I was frozen. Paralyzed and helpless, I began to sink into the bed, she was screaming, trying to help me. I hit the bottom. That's when I always wake up.

I sat up in my bed and looked at the picture on my nightstand. She was so happy, so lively...

"I'm sorry Kath..." I said, clutching the picture, almost breaking it from how hard I was embracing it.

"I'm sorry Kath..." I said, as the picture slipped from my hands. The glass shattered on the ground at about the same time the stool did, but my feet, they never touched the ground.

It was pitch black. I couldn't see anything through my eyelids, clutched tighter than a vice grip. I felt the tug and with that the normal darkness advanced just like in my nightmares, but this time with hope.

I knew I would never have to live through another day, or nightmare again without her.

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

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.

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

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.

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

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...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

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.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...
