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.

Someone: This was a fun, entertaining read. Although the novel wasn’t stylistically polished, and although the first couple of chapters struggled to hold my attention, the rest of the novel was engaging and beautifully done. You had me fooled until the end. The rest of this review will contain spoilers fo...

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 -

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

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.

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

More Recommendations

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). ...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Thirdy T. Quiambao: Full of twist and unexpected events. I recommend it to everyone who loves creepypasta stories and will give you the night rush of stories that will keep you awake at night. Do you want to make a story.
