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.

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

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). ...

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 ...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

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.

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...

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 -

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.

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.
