im going to turn on the lights

Mystery / Horror

Untitled Chapter

This is going to be weird so bear with me, I had a weird upbringing and I cannot really the origins of how it happened to be what it is as to what I am about to tell you. At the age of 10 I had been told by my 18 year old brother and carer that I can finally meet my parents. I never went to school but my older brother taught me the basics of the main three subjects and he did ok, I did wonder about my parents and why we hardly ever went out. We lived in a house which was kind of seperate but not to far from society.

Now to meet my parents my brother had to take me to another house of ours which I had never known of until then, we walked through the forest and both our houses has electricity surprisingly and even heating. I always did wonder how my brother got the money to pay for heating and electricity.

So there we were in that second house until my brother told me to switch off the lights into complete darkness, I had a look of confusion and where we live it can get pretty creepy dark. I did as my older brother told me and as I did switch off the lights, trying to adapt and get use to the complete darkness my older brother excitedly jumped up hugging some sort of figure not 1 but 2.

"mom dad I missed you!" my older brother said

"we missed you too honey now where is your little brother" a woman's had said

My older brother pointed to me and the way the two figures moved it was half shadowy and something else. Then they grabbed me and started hugging me and said "oh look at you, you have grown so big" and I replied "can I turn on the lights so I can see you both" and my dad slapped me in the face and shouted "no never turn on the lights when we are here!" my dad told me

It was the weirdest night of my life, my parents who I couldn't see sung weird songs and danced and moved so smoothly through the air, my older brother was joyful. It was our parents who gave us the money to pay for electricity and heating as well as other things where ever they got it from is beyond me.

For the next 9 years me and my older brother would make these visits to our parents, I never questioned as I was too scared. One day though as we made another visit to our parents, I wanted to turn on the light and see my parents in the light. They were talking with my older brother and I decided to turn on the lights, as I did all of a sudden a screeching sound and weird images invaded my mind and the lights were switched off by my mother.

"why did you turn on the lights!" my mother screamed

Then I heard my brothers voice but I couldn't see him properly first until I realised he was like them, he was embedded in darkness and could move like them, my father turned to me and said "you turned on the lights causing us to kill your older brother, you are a murderer"

I ran away that night but I was being chased by them who ever they were and I resorted to black magic and any other form of voodoo to keep them off. But now, I have decided to let them have me as I am tired of running, I am going back to my parents house to turn on the lights.

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...

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!!

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too.

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go.
