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 +.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

Diane April: Really liked the concept of this story. The beginning had a great explanation about how things worked in the real world that people tend to overlook. It was a nice change from the usual zombie story that just makes things up as they go along and actual facts don't matter.

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.

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.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

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). ...

Alex Rushmer: I like the intrigue that you introduce from the very beginning of the story. The idea of the girl waking up in the alley with no memory of how she got there and with injuries is very interesting. It was very well done. There were a lot of grammatical errors that need to be fixed though. I think t...

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 -

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Alex Rushmer: I really love your writing style in this story. Usually the whole narration from a journal sort of thing doesn't work for me, but you really pull it off here. I like the main character's blatant way of putting things. I think that it lends a lot to his character and to the story. You tell it like...

Carolyn Hahn-Re: I really liked this story! The writing was well done, and the plot was suspenseful. I couldn't stop reading chapter after chapter, on the edge of my seat! The characters were well developed, and true to form. Thank you so much for this wonderful read.
