Horror

Chapter 1.

I'm in constant, unbearable pain all the time. I want to just die. I'm writing this about why so hopefully you don't make the same mistake I did.

I made a deal with the devil. I was dying of cancer, and I wanted my family to be financially comfortable after my death. So, after summoning him (I will not include how I did this, because it's something you should never, ever do, which I learned the hard way), I asked him to make sure my family had enough money to live comfortably after my demise.

And he smiled. He just smiled and said, "Sure, and I'll take away your cancer while I'm at it."

Now, I'm not an idiot. Well I guess I am, but at the time I didn't think so. I knew enough to know that there's always a catch. So, obviously, I asked him, "What's the catch?"

He smiles again. He says "All you have to do is allow me to remove one organ from your body. Any organ of my choosing."

So I think about it. I figure this is some kind of trick... he's gonna remove my heart or some shit and kill me. So I wanna make sure I get this right. I say to him "Are you going to take a vital organ?"

And he laughs at me and says "I can make it so you can live without the organ I choose," he pauses. "So, do we have a deal?"

I go through all the scenarios in my head. If he removes my heart, I can still survive because he will make sure I survive. Living without a heart wouldn't be so bad. Lungs, same thing. Stomach, yeah. I went through every organ I could think of, imagined life without it, and decided that I'd be willing to give any one of them up. So I said three words that I will regret for the rest of my life: "It's a deal."

Fun fact: Did you know your skin is considered an organ?

Pam Lobato Ceja: The plot is interesting although for me the ending feels a bit rushed, since a lot happens in very few pages. I did notice a few grammar mistakes here & there, but nothing too noticeable.Overall, I enjoyed this greatly.

maewilde25: I liked this, though it dragged on for over 200pages and heaven knows I did not expect the plot twist in the middle. David being Cristiãn.

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...

elssxa: I love everything about this story. I want more...more...more. This author is superb. I am fascinated by his amazing work. I give him five stars.

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.

shotgundriver: As with all horror fiction, the reader must be able to suspend disbelief to digest this story. Fortunately, the first-person style of the story is so casual, and the protagonist, Ashley, so familiar on many levels, that I found myself sacrificing sleep to stay up and read, as if I was anxiousl...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties.
