Remember Me

Untitled Chapter

Hello kiddies,

You miss me?

What!!

You don’t remember me?

I know,

It has been a while.

But today is your lucky day!

I've come to collect,

What is mine!

Let’s just say

I forgot.

What?

You still don’t remember?

My… my

What a foolish child you are.

Remember

How scared you were?

You’d shut off the light

And leap into bed.

And

How petrified

You were,

Staring at your closet.

You remember now?

You do,

Don’t you?

Yes,

You remember me.

I can feel,

Your heart racing.

Those images

They’re flooding back.

A tiny voice whispers,

Behind you.

But don’t look now,

I’m behind you.

Yes,

Be afraid…

I fuel on your fear.

You feel me around you,

Don’t you?

In the shadows,

I am hidden.

But not for long,

I’m here

To collect.

Remember

When you were little,

You heard

The door creak open.

And you saw my long black fingers,

Slink around the door.

Oh yes,

I feel your fear.

Remember how

You covered your head in terror.

And you heard my raspy breathing,

Coming,

Closer.

And yet,

I was already,

Under your bed.

Those tingles you feel right now,

And how,

Your hair stands on end?

It’s my long fingers,

Sliding around your neck.

Yes

Your heart is drumming,

I like it,

You’re scared now

Aren't you?

It is me.

The one you fear most,

I love how your

Body shivers.

You do remember me,

Don’t you?

Now you can’t

Go to sleep.

How could you?

When you hear

That tiny voice whisper,

I am

The Boogieman!

I’ve come to collect

Your

body and soul.

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

NancyRichFoster: This second book of the Anmah Series was as awesome as the first story, I disagree with spare runner. The names were ordinary names with different spellings, which I for one loved. I am now going to read the third book in this amazingly awesome story!

Kevin Brand: My overall rating: 4.8/5 starsLoved. Every. Second. Everytime I came back to continue reading I got this overwhelming feeling of getting hooked on the first sentence...

minallie: One word, brilliant

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything – about love, about their e...

NancyRichFoster: This story had me mesmerized from the first word! I am now going to read book two, with the hopes that book three will be finished by the time I finish reading it, so I will not have to wonder how the story ends! Kudos for a fascinating story!

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
