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?

I was wondering when he would show up and didn't know he was there all along. it looks like there should be a sequel, please let there be a sequel. I know the...

Bradley Darewood: I really really really liked this. I just voted for you!The voice is flawless-- I can't write men as well as you do and I have a penis. Maybe I'm narcissistic but I particularly enjoyed the moment where he muses about how artists would do better in such a solitary job. But my favorite moment ...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...

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. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

BFIrving: A first rate story and well crafted, the blend of horror and action worked very well indeed and had me turning page after page.

kotabsavage91: This young author really knows her stuff. From the 1st chapter I was sucked in and entertained the book. The characters are rich and well thought out and the plot keeps you guessing all the way through to an imaginatively well exacuted showdown. Keep up the great work, I look forward to more of ...

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.

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
