The Truth About Google Plus

Let me start off with a warning. Playing around with things you don't understand can ruin you for life.

You risk your lives for the sake of a thrill; say Bloody Mary three times, summon Satan, watch satanic videos or even type numbers you know will eat away at you.

A few months ago I typed the number "666" in hopes of finding a community on Google+ to troll. What I found instead was disturbing.

At first everything seemed normal. Normal users, normal text, pictures, stuff like that. People spoke of expected things like blood and devil worship. But I found that, over time, the users faces were falling apart; they looked like melting plastic. Each face swirled faster and faster, looking upon me with eyes of evil intent. They laughed, they cried in torture, they moaned in loud tones and grumbled on in a language I couldn't understand. I should have turned off the computer long before, but I was compelled by fear and kept watching. But I wasn't just watching anymore; from the computer came a foul odor almost like a family of dead bodies rotting away in a dumpster. My gut felt like it just about hit the floor as my heart twisted into knots. My entire body became covered in goose bumps. I wanted badly to scream but I was too damn scared to even try it. I honestly terrified at the thought that maybe some demented being would just pull me into the computer and I'd be trapped in a literal online hell.

The screen flashed from it's normal white to black and even the notification's bell seemed to lose it's friendliness.

I clicked on the screen like a mad man and finally tried turning it off but nothing came of it. Instead the black screen continued on it's disturbing path and the bell became more and more sadistic. A sort of deep, murmured, scrambled voice could be heard which made me vomit chunks of my dinner all over the keyboard. The harder I tried to escape, the deeper I fell. I may not have understood technology, but I knew enough to understand that this wasn't okay. Trembling, I dared myself to get up and took the computer outside to the dumpster and never saw it again.

I've not been the same since that evening. Every single night I dream about what took place and it's always the same scene. Nothing dramatized, nothing edited. Fortunately, the community has since been reported and removed from Google +.

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

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.

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.

Evelyn Alonzo: I was up till three in the morning just so I could finish the story! It just really grabs your attention and you can't stop reading it at all! Lol great job, Nick! Can't wait to read your other stories!

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.

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.

Sara Joy Bailey: The characters are well written, full of depth and life. The plot was thrilling. The author's style flows naturally and the reader can easily slip into the pages of the story. Very well done.

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). ...
