Horror

Dark Place

I'm in the darkest place in the world. It wasn't easy, but I'm glad I made it.

I know it's lurking by me, and will never go away, but at least I no longer see it. Just the sight of it would be enough to send terror through me, leave me a mad gibbering wreck, but now I'm safe.

Hard to believe I didn't notice it at first, all those carefree years of innocence. Of course I saw it, but I never really noticed it. Kind of crept up on me, just like it will creep up on you, and then you'll realise horrors like you've never felt before; you'll scream inside and outside, just wanting it to go away, but it never does, and the more you look the worse it gets.

Now I'm safe, here in my dark place, my only worry being my imagination, but I'll try not to think about it. Eventually though, in this quiet darkness, I will succumb to sleep and it will creep into my dreams, turn them into nightmares, and so I sit, trying to stay awake, trying so hard, though there are no sights to distract me, only the faintest of sounds.

But now I think I can hear it. I scream, but I can still hear its whispers. It's just beginning, and it'll only get worse. It always does. It's here and it never goes away. Never.

Looks like I'll have to remove my ears next.

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.

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...

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

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.

Dina Husseini: What a story. It may be short and small but it is mighty and massive in creativity. However, I did not feel any romance in the story rather than a lot of horror. It was a great read and I cannot wait to see what this author has next on the agenda. Sometimes short stories have the best content and...

Hemanth Thiyagarajan: MA'AM the story was really good as well as the plot and your catchy writing style.Would i were give a rating it would 9 out of 10A few drawbacks were that you hinted about the upocoming danger in the nd of each chapter of the beginning i felt that it was not necessary only once you could have put...

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.

Shantell Murphy: I absolutely love this . I have not read a book by my choice since first grade I am in 9th grade now and I love this book . its suspense is really good . it's alot of foreshadowing witch is cool . it gives a thrill and excitement to the book .

Ayesha Shaikh: I love the twists. 😆I like how the writer describes everyone's point of view and the character development. I'm gonna read all the books by this author (current and upcoming). She's one of my favorites now. The spelling mistakes are normal no big deal, the amazing plot makes up for it. Thank you ...

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show.
