Noises

#ENTRY 1

You know that time of the night when you wake up and you know you’re not alone? Like there is someone in your room, watching you from the shadows... That’s what happened to me last night. It’s very difficult to explain that’s why I’m doing this video. I want to know if this has ever happened to you or if I’m losing my mind.

It all started with the noises in my wardrobe but then things got worse. Last night the door opened all by itself. I’m really scared and everyone thinks it’s because of the wind or because this house is old, but I know it’s more than that. I’ll keep you posted if anything happens again.

#ENTRY 2

Fucking shit. You’re not going to believe this. Last night nothing happened, or that was what I thought until this morning. Look at the door of my wardrobe! Can you see it properly? There is a  handprint that only has three fingers. Okay, this is strange, and I’m scared. I’m going to tell everything to my parents. Thank you for your comments and your support.

#ENTRY 3

My parents don’t believe me and my sister gives me the cold shoulder. They think I’m too old for these games. They believe it’s just my imagination, that I should stop watching those ‘weird movies’. The house is old nothing more they say…  I know that’s not the truth. I sleep with my door locked and the handprint was not there all day. Something strange is happening in my bedroom and I’m going to find out what.

#ENTRY 4

Okay, okay, I’m really scared. It’s raining outside, my parents and my sister are sleeping and I’m beginning to think I’m the only one who can hear the noises in my wardrobe. I don’t know what’s happening but <<CLACK>> OMG did you hear that? I’m really frightened. I don’t know if I should check the wardrobe…

I think I’m going to sleep <<CLICK>> or at least I’m going to try.

#ENTRY 5

Good morning everyone. I’m so tired… Last night I couldn’t sleep a wink. Now we all are going to find out if there is something in my wardrobe. So, okay, on the count of 3 I’ll open the door.

One…

Two

Three…

Wow look at these scratches on the door! Someone or something was here last night. I think they want to tell me something. Tonight I’m going to open the wardrobe if I hear noises again.

#ENTRY 6

Hopefully this night it will end. The noises have started 15min ago. I’m really scared. It’s raining again, there is no electricity and soon the battery of this video camera will shut down. I get goosebumps just thinking of opening the wardrobe. It’s like my heart is going to explode. <<BOOM>> Oh My God! DID YOU SEE THAT?! THE DOOR HAS JUST BEEN OPENED! WHO’S THERE? CAN YOU SEE THAT? THERE IS SOMEONE THERE!

-The video is silenced from this moment until the end. This one was never uploaded. We still do not have any clue of the strange figure that appears in the wardrobe. The house has been researched and we could not find anything. What we know so far is that the whole family disappeared, there are no bodies and the video camera is missing too. He used to upload the videos from his laptop and all the videos are being analysed.

Now I want you to focus on the figure of the wardrobe, just let us go back and pause. We still don’t know if this creature is human or if it’s a disguise.

I want the three of you to work with a team of experienced people with the paranormal issue to spend the night in the house investigating. So let me introduce you to Mila, Noah and Alex.

Oh and one more thing… Please record everything and then we will analyse the videos. We’ll keep you informed if there are news and we’ll meet again in the morning. Good Luck.

[…]


#MILA [3:01pm]

Okay, so, this is our first video. We have unpacked everything. We’re going to eat now and then we’ll go on investigating. To the best of our knowledge the wardrobe is empty but as you can see there are scratches. Something terrible happened here I can feel a negative energy in the atmosphere.


#NOAH [7:12pm]

Hi, emm… we are sitting on the couch and we have just heard a noise upstairs. We’re going together. This is very strange, we’re alone, and there is no wind at all. I think the noise came from Jack’s room.

[…]

NO WAY. LOOK. OVER HERE. I FOUND SOMETHING. THE DOOR OF THE WARDROBE IS OPEN AND THE BOY’S CORPSE IS INSIDE. Look at it, it’s burned, look at the expression of horror of his face. This makes no sense.


#ALEX [8:09pm]

The detectives have left to take the body to investigate. I don’t think they will come back, the look on their faces was indescribable. They are not used to these kind of things. I think we’ll work better the three of us alone. We have installed some cameras that take pictures when the temperature drops and also we have installed some video cameras to record overnight on specific points.

We’re going to sleep in Jack’s room, I think tonight will be a night of restless sleep.


#NOAH [3:05am]

The noises in the wardrobe don’t let us sleep. We have check the cameras and some pictures have been taken, this is what we have found. Can you see it properly? It’s exactly the same figure that appeared in Jack’s video but the strange thing is that it doesn’t correspond to any kind of ghost or spirit. This is something new for us. I would venture to say that the picture has been taken due to its body temperature. This is a cold blooded creature, but it takes a very low temperature to the camera to take a picture. Scientifically this creature should be dead, this creature is not from this planet.

I think we’re not alone in this house, we are inside a nest of something terrifying.

Phones have no signal and the doorway leading to the street is locked. We’re trapped.


#MILA [3:14am]

I’m really scared. I don’t know what’s happening, there are strange noises all over the house. We are in Jack’s room, Alex has fainted, his pulse is weak <<BOOM>> THE DOOR, THE WARDROBE’S DOOR HAS JUST BEEN OPENED, NOAH! NOAH! LOOK!

There is nothing, but, where do the noises come from? The back of the wardrobe does not fit according to the decoration. <<Knock knock>> It’s empty, there is something behind, we have to knock it down. Break it Noah.

[…]

Look! There is a hole and stairs, where do you think this would lead? Let’s go down and find out.

[…]

Ugh, it stinks. This is huge, it’s like a maze of passages. The creatures move through the sewage system. Look at the walls, there are huge cocoons. Noah what the fuck is this? We have to go back, we have to go upstairs and we have to find help. NOAH! THE COCOONS ARE OPENING. We have to hide.

[…]

What are those creatures? Their skin is pale covered in scales, they only have three fingers. What are they doing? They are smelling the air. Look at those sharp teeth. NOAH! THEY FOUND US! RUN!

[…]

I’m upstairs again. Noah is dead, they killed him, they spit a corrosive liquid that burns our skin, look at my arm. I don’t know what’s happening. There is a nest of creatures living down below this house, they communicate through a strange language made of noises. I don’t know if I’ll surv… <<click, clack, click, clack>> THEY ARE HERE, THEY FOUND ME, HELP!

[…]

-Oh for God’s sake, it reeks. Are there any survivors?

-No, sir, they are all dead. We did as you told, we left and locked them up.

-Good. Let’s see if they have another message for us.

-They have sir, we found this on the boy’s wardrobe’s door.

1, 12, 9, 5, 14, 19 – 8, 1, 16, 16, 25 – 2, 25, 6

-ALIENS HAPPY BYE. I don’t know how they do, but they always manage to contact us, this time through the hour of the uploaded videos.

-What do you mean sir?

-Isn’t it obvious? The hour of the videos, look at the minutes: 1, 12, 9, 5, 14. Now look for the words in the alphabet.

They come once a year and some sacrifices must be made if we want to keep our treaty of peace. This race only feed once a year. They are predators who travel among planets and this year is the Earth’s turn although I didn’t expect them so early, they usually come in summer.

-So, do you mean they have come several times?

-Yes and my job is to cover the mess.

-And our job?

-Oh, I have a special job for you <<click, clack, click, clack>>

-Sir?

-You know too much and I can’t take risks… Look what papa brought you my children, dessert.

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc .

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

TheGhostWritter: I enjoyed your book, great plot, random twists and great characters, Loved it, One suggestion is to keep paragraphs short, at one point I might have begun skipping paragraphs because they became a little to long, bit other wise great book, brilliant plot, and bloody amazing thriller.

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Kelsey Miller: Page turner set in a gritty future. Loads of flavor and depth that makes the pages fly by until like me you are at the end of the book wanting more!The world is developed to the point it begs more stories set in this harsh reality. More adventures from Daryl and thr crew.

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace. The dynamics between each character were interesting and kept things fresh and exciting, very much so that you would forgive it for not going deeper into the back stories of each character. ...

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.
