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.

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.

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

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 -

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn. I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Barbara Zavela: Do you know the song, 'Imagine' by John Lennon?If you had a chance for a world like the one described in that song, would you grab it with both hands or turn away and reject it.This story pulls you in from the beginning with well-written scenarios. The author offers you the opportunity to bring y...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

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.
