My neighbor, Jack

By Createology All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Mystery

New home, new neighbor

Sinister Street isn't the nicest neighborhood to live in. But undercover police officer, Brayden Gulligan, thought the place might make a good neighborhood for him to live in. He chose Sinister Street because County prison was just around the corner. Sinister Street smelled of smoke and chemicals. The sky was dark grey, and not a single ray of sunshine shined upon Sinister Street. Brayden knew that there have been crimes in Sinister Street, so, that got him excited to live there. But he wasn't the only person to move to Sinister Street that day. Today is July 20th, which is the day Brayden moved to Sinister Street, and another man named Jack Martin. Jack Martin was a criminal who had managed to escape from a battle between him and the police. Jack comes from a place called Central City. Jack looks much like Brayden, he has brown eyes, short brown hair, he's 5' 8" while Brayden stands at 5' 7," his hair isn't formed into a mo-hawk like Brayden's, and he's not very nice when it comes to violence, much like Brayden.

Brayden moved to Sinister Street in a large truck he borrowed from a company known as Gotta Get There Faster, which is kind of a ridiculous name. Brayden did return the truck when he was finished unpacking and now, he can just sit at home and relax. Brayden doesn't have very much stuff at his house. He has all of the basic stuff a person needs: furniture, tools, medical supplies, and other stuff like that. The other things he packed with him were his guns. Brayden hasn't failed a single battle with any of his guns. He has a Sniper rifle, a semi-automatic shotgun, a metal storm machine gun, a Revolver, and an Auto-cannon. Although when Jack had moved to a playground near Brayden's house, he didn't really pack much of anything, except for his knife collection. Jack owned several different types of knives: A dagger, a fighting knife, a cleaver (used by butchers), an electric knife (a knife with two blades), a machete, a survival knife, and a Seax, or Germanic single-edged knife.

Brayden and Jack had finished unpacking their things into their homes and it was time for them to check out the neighborhood. There were dogs walking almost everywhere Jack and Brayden looked, because the people of Sinister Street are pretty careless about their pets. But that didn't really concern the two guys. Anyway, Jack and Brayden were just walking along the sidewalk and after walking for about three minutes, they approached each other.

Brayden: Oh, hi! My name is Brayden. What's yours?

Jack: My name is Jack. I just moved here.

Brayden: I did too!

Jack: Really? That's cool. So, do you like it here in Sinister Street?

Brayden: It could use some happiness and stuff like that, but I honestly do like this place.

Jack: Yeah, it's not the worst. Well, it was nice meeting you sir.

Brayden: You too. Have a good day.

Brayden and Jack walked back to their houses after their conversation with each other. But Brayden didn't know that Jack had one of his knives in his back pocket. Although, Jack didn't Brayden was carrying one of his guns in his back pocket. They did this because they were being cautious because the people of Sinister Street can actually be quite, well, sinister.

Sinister Street has a somewhat dark past. Sinister Street got its name from a psychopath named Marley Johnson. Marley had killed many people before he moved to the dark neighborhood and was shot down by Brayden's father, Noah. Brayden's father told him the story of how he tracked Marley down and killed him in Sinister Street and the intense battle they had between each other. But, that was all in the past, and now, Brayden is a grown man, obviously. Noah had died one year ago from a serial killer who used carried fake ID and pretended to be nice to others and would eventually manipulate them into letting him into their homes, and finally, killing them. That got Brayden thinking more about Jack since Jack seemed like a pretty nice guy, but people are not always who they say they are. Now Brayden had to be extra careful about talking to Jack or even the people of Sinister Street because one wrong move could cost him his life.

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.

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. When not actually reading it, I found myself thinking about it which is always a good sign.There are quite a few grammatical and spell-checker errors but nothing anothe...

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too. To me, it felt like a Blair Witch of yesteryear, but the things which you added in about the mutilated boys were certainly something n...
