The Demon Inside

By Alicia Simone Davis All Rights Reserved ©

Romance / Other

Prologue - The Beginning

Do you ever feel like somebody else.......that is not human......is inside of your body that wants to take over your body and life? You wish you can escape that fate....but you can't. But you realize when you look in the mirror.....but that somebody else is the total and complete opposite of you....a demon.

Here is the meaning of demon: "An evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person or act as a tormentor in hell."

When you turn into a demon, your body feels like it's being dragged in eternal darkness. You scream and yell, wanting to break free from this eternal darkness. But nobody hears your cries and screams and you plunge into darkness......and never come out. Your soul turns a rich, dark black.

You wake up the next morning, go to the mirror, and realize that you are human once again. But you ask yourself:

"Will I be able to remain a human.......or forever become a demon? Will I be able to change my fate? Or is it too late? Was that a dream......or reality?"

My name is Alicia and this is my story.


Alicia was normal for a 15 year old. She was 5'5 in height, light brown skin, hourglass frame, busty chest who normally wore her black and white hightop Polo shoes, black skinny jeans, a black polo shirt with a black vest. And she was also wearing her hair up along with her black glasses on so that she can see.

She currently stays by herself after her parents died in their large two bedroom apartment. Her mother committed suicide while her father was stabbed in the chest multiple times.

When she's at school, she is quiet and hardworking in all of her classes. But as soon as she gets over, she gets on her computer, surfing the Web on some random stuff until she ended looking up demons. She looked at the screen and said "Nah....I will never ever believe in demons - they don't exist!", closing out of the tab and closing the lid on her laptop.

She cooked herself some Oodles and Noodles for dinner which was chicken flavored. After she ate that, she raided the fridge for some dessert and found vanilla bean cupcakes, a can of Coca-Cola and some Flaming Hot Limon Cheetos. She then took those items to her living room, sat them down on the table, and turned on the TV. The show that came on was her favorite which was Nick Cannon's Wild N' Out. She laughed and ate her dessert.

After the little chilling time she had, she cleaned up, went back into her room, changed into black shorts and a Danganronpa t-shirt with short black socks, and got into bed. She was sleeping peacefully until she was tossing and turning in her sleep. She was having a bad dream.

She then wakes up in her dream and says "Where am I?" before getting up. But suddenly, something from under the ground, hands reaching out and grabbing her legs, pulling the normal Alicia straight into darkness. She was free falling throughout the eternal darkness. "HELP ME PLEASE! Somebody, help please!!" She screamed but nobody was there to hear her crying and screaming.

But then, she woke up in the middle of the night, shaking and crying. "That was a dream...." She said, getting up and going towards the mirror in her room. She looked in the mirror at herself and realized that she was now......a demon.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin!

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.

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.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.
