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?

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

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 ...

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

Shantell Murphy: I absolutely love this . I have not read a book by my choice since first grade I am in 9th grade now and I love this book . its suspense is really good . it's alot of foreshadowing witch is cool . it gives a thrill and excitement to the book .

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.

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...

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.

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

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.

poosa13: I actually really liked it. Kept me interested all the way through and never really had a dull moment. But for some reason, I just didn't like Tanya. I'm sorry 😐 but I just don't. She makes my stomach hurt. But that's just me. Other than that everything was cool.

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 ...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well.
