My Paranormal Experience

So, last night when I went to bed, I kept hearing a clicking noise coming from the other side of the room. There wasn't anyone in my room and I didn't let the bunny in. Eventually the clicking got louder. It wasn't until about 12:40 that I decided to get up and go tell my dad. But when I left the room to head downstairs, I saw something disturbing. In my brother's room, on the other side of his bed, was a figure standing around 152 centimetres. He was lanky, somewhere around bony actually, as I could just make out his ribcage from the nightlight in the room. He had dark-grey skin and round, forlorn-looking eyes with bags underneath them, as if he'd had chronic insomnia that had lasted more than a decade. He didn't seem to have any hair at all.

And he just stood there staring at my brother for a good half minute before his eyes darted to meet mine, looking almost angry. Right then, my bunny, who I didn't even know was in the room at the time, made a break for it and darted down the stairs. I did the same.

When I went downstairs to tell my dad (Thank Goddess he was home!) about the creature in my brother's room, we both had to go up there to investigate. But when we got back up there, the creature was gone. He went to get some candles and some charms for all of the upstairs rooms and had me inspect my brother for vitals. Thankfully, he was unharmed.

Since I was now unable to sleep, he suggested I do a sketch of the creature (which I will upload to my Twitter later), write a description of it, and tell you guys on the Internets the next day. When I finally did go to bed, guess who I had accompany me for protection and comfort. You guessed it. The bunny.

Pam Thomas: Loved the story. It left me thinking just a tad bit. Also, it is the ultimate blend of genres that I adore! Continue writing!

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

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...

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 -

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Kastril Nomenclature: This is an artfully-written horror story which deals with the most frightening monsters in the entire history of the macabre: teenagers. Indeed, the author captures the speech, relationships, and general highly-charged, petty, and competitive atmosphere of high school so well, that you would swea...

Bailey_Simms: So. As of my writing this review, "Deep Trouble" is the most popular story among those submitted to the current Inkitt horror contest. I guess it's best not to lie: I read this story primarily because I wanted to check out the competition. (There's your full disclosure, first, before anything el...

Frank Pilato: I wanted to be sure to comment on this, as I did not read the whole story through, but I am impressed with you.....very impressed. ......................................................................................................................................................................

E_W_Hemmings: First of all, sorry this review took so long: I've had science mocks recently and then when I came to read this, I made notes to put in the review like I usually do... but then I deleted them. Well done me. As a result, this review is a bit more general than most reviews I write, but hey ho, let'...

Resting-Madness: I've been in love that strongly, that I could see myself in the same situation as Surgio. The slow crawl of desperation was well depicted, I could feel myself leaning close to the screen, like he and I were conspiring together on how to construct this Frankenstein of Adela. And that's written thr...

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...

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view.
