She needs help.

Horror

Chapter One

My daughter is five years old and the things you are about to read are the weirdest things she has ever done.

We were all at my mom's birthday party: me, my daughter, my wife, my brother, my father, my uncle and a lot of friends of us. I don't know for sure, but there were approximately twenty people at the party. Everyone was drinking, laughing and having a good time.

Except for my daughter, for what it seemed. Since we came to my mom's house, she hadn't spoken a word. Not even one word. I asked her what the problem was three times. Her response was "Everything's fine, daddy." every time. I told my mom and my wife that I thought she was sick. However, both of them said that she doesn't feel comfortable because there were so many people at the party. I agreed, since she was just a sweet and innocent five year old girl.

An idea came through my mind: since she already ate cake and didn't want to eat or drink anything, I gave her my phone and said:

"Sweetie, go to the bedroom and play Minecraft. Just don't play on your daddy's worlds, OK?"

"OK."

Now, let me tell you that my daughter really likes Minecraft. Really, really likes Minecraft; just like I do.

So, one hour passes away and people start heading to their homes. Me and my wife are the last ones to stay to help my mom clean up the mess. We eventually say goodbye to her and prepare to leave. I call my daughter:

"Amanda, it's time to go."

No answer for thirty seconds or so.

"Amanda!"

Silence.

"Sweetheart! It's time to go!"

At that point, I kinda freaked out. I enter the bedroom. She isn't there.

Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. The phone is laying on the bed. I quickly take it to call her (she had a phone the whole time, but she just didn't have any games on it). But before I manage to call her, I see that Minecraft was still open, and there were two signs. The first one said "The girl at the window said you killed her." and the second one said "She needs help. Again." (note that she knew how to read, how to spell, and she knew some basic mathematics).

I was really freaking out. I had no idea what she meant by that. I go ahead and do what I wanted to from the beginning: to call her. Of course, no response. I call her four times, but she does not respond.

We call the police. My mom comes upstairs and asks what was going on. We tell her what happened. We give every single detail to the police. They say they will try their best help us.

At that point, our hearts shrank. Every second that passed meant a possibility of something happening to her.

I receive a text. It's from her.

"Daddy, help her, please."

I quickly show it to my wife.

"Sweetheart, are you alright? Where are you?", I text.

"She's not alright. She said I should tell you that she's in the house."

"Who is she? And if she's in the house, where are you?"

"She let me go. I'm in the backyard."

We rush to the backyard like there was a bacon giveaway. Our little girl. There she was. She looked almost as if nothing happened to her. We run to kiss her.

She comes into the house. We tell her we were very worried, ask her who the girl she was talking about was and what happened.

"She asked me to bring her here, so I was here the whole time, basically.", she said. "When we got here she whispered 'Thank you.' and disappeared."

"Who was she, Amanda?", my wife asked.

"I don't know. She never told me her name."

All of us heard a loud sound of a broken vase coming from the bedroom right before Amanda said the scariest thing I have ever heard.

"She's here."

kotabsavage91: This young author really knows her stuff. From the 1st chapter I was sucked in and entertained the book.

Capsi.rum : Story is unbelievable but i m bit off about end because there should be reunion of hamilton with all of his friends that's it

hakimdimacawa: Honestly to say this book that I really wonder about the flow of this story. Because it is great and interested the whole way of thought. I never thought that the Capricorn would be the bad. In another words the characters were developed very well. So far, I will recommended to all readers that w...

AudreyInAshes: I think this book is a really great modern-age thriller. The idea of the drug and its symptoms were explained generously, and while I did really enjoy this I just want to add that there is some mild gore and the killing of a pet (sorry to spoil, but I like to be prepared.) It is very interesting,...

Lacey Eder: The stories remind me of the chilling 2 sentence stories on Reddit. Creepy, but not too scary and short. There were a couple of spelling errors throughout, which probably should've been taken care of beforehand. But, if this were available on Kindle Unlimited for $1-5, I'd consider buying it then.

Arrwyn Cliona: The story is interesting, so far, introduction of new characters well handled, but the grammatical and spelling errors ruined the reading experience. My message to the author: Even a first draft, ALWAYS run spell/grammer checker before you post ANYTHING!

Andrea Norton: This story was so well put together. It was suspenseful, the storyline flowed perfectly and it was full of interesting twists and turns. I found myself getting very involved in the story and read it in just a few hours. I'd really like to read more of this author's work!

Jessica: I like the ideas and how the author came up with the story. What the intentions are. The grammar and spelling needs a little bit of work. Just to go over the story and re-read it will help improve the story dramatically.

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

Deleted User: What a story. It may be short and small but it is mighty and massive in creativity. However, I did not feel any romance in the story rather than a lot of horror. It was a great read and I cannot wait to see what this author has next on the agenda. Sometimes short stories have the best content and...

CC-Lemon: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

Patrick Zac: The story, pacing, characters, and style was good. However the punctuation mistakes really threw me off. Other than that though the actual story is solid.
