“Wasn’t there a horror movie based on this?” sneered Cassidy, joining her boyfriend and her two friends on a brick porch. It offered little relief from the blaring desert sun of Utah. “I believe it was a lesbian horror movie.”
Alyssa fumbled with the keys to the front door. “I hate labels for movies. A DVD cannot be straight, gay or bisexual.”
“Isn’t there a horror movie were friends go to a little house out in the country and a killer comes after them?” asked Cassidy.
Cassidy knew she was as subtle as a splinter about the movie, but when she had a bisexual friend, that movie HAD to come up. Why? Not even Cassidy knew the answer. “Haute Tension.” Alyssa’s voice croaked, as smooth as sandpaper.
“And wasn’t there a lesbian in it?”
Alyssa sighed, she really wanted to scream. “Yes.”
“Don’t go all lesbo on me,” said Cassidy as Alyssa put the key into the lock. “Wouldn’t be fair to Andrew.”
Andrew and Alan looked about Utah from the porch, it looked about as exciting as an empty movie theater. “Like I would,” hissed Alyssa. The desert that was around them all was basically an ocean of dust. “If my OCD allowed it, I’d have a new girl crush.”
“On me?” asked Cassidy. “I know you would.” Cassidy, standing there in all her bright colored clothes, impossibly beautiful, look radiant standing in the afternoon sun of Utah.
Alyssa groaned as she opened the door to her late grandfather’s farmhouse. She came from a long line of famers on her mother’s side of the family. This farm was located in a small town of Utah. The reason Alyssa and three city dwellers were there was because they wanted to write scary stories; well, not Alyssa’s fiancé, he just wanted to spend time with her.
Alyssa looked at fiancé and her friend and her boyfriend. “Before I show you the bedrooms, Andrew and I get the room downstairs with the TV,” she said. “I brought along my DVDs and they will be watched.”
“Well, as long as you don’t mind taking your clothes off during them, I have no issues with this,” smiled Andrew.
“You are such a perv,” groaned Cassidy.
“Hey, I don’t allow him a shirt,” purred Alyssa. Alyssa was drooling, she was hungry for Andrew’s body.
“Alyssa, where is the bathroom?” asked Alan, his voice taking on a sudden edge.
“Through the kitchen, why?”
“I need to vomit.”
Hearing Alan needed to vomit made Cassidy’s stomach go cold, and that cold spread to where it touched her heart. “Is everything okay, baby?” gasped Cassidy.
“I just imagined those two doing it to a horror film,” burped Alan.
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). ...
Victoria Lovett: I really enjoyed reading this. The ending was a very nice twist. I never expected that. Overall this has been one of the best books I've read in a long while. Excellent work. I would buy this as a real book instead of just one on my phone if I had the chance.
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...
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.
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 ...
Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...
Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...
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. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...
