Game Over (Warning: Gore)

(Hey! This is my short story collection. These little words-between-brackets will serve as a mini-teaser, since ALL of my stories are in different genres, and age groups. For instance, this story has a little bit of gore. So maybe read at your own discretion or whatever. The next one may be completely different though. So every 'chapter' will be a different short story. That odd little explanation aside, enjoy the first edition of the collection!)

The morning sun gleamed through my window, shining in my eyes. I pulled the blankets over my head, unwilling to rise. My alarm blared in my ears. Guess I had to get up after all. With a sigh, I shuffled over and pressed the snooze button.

Slowly I sauntered down the hall, yawning. Glancing at the bathroom, I decided I would go relieve myself. I willed my body to go left as usual. But this time I kept going straight.

"No." I told myself lazily. "Go THAT way."

Blaming my actions on lack of sleep, I ended up in the kitchen instead. I figured I'd grab breakfast while I was here so I reached for the- drawer? Almost deliberately I slid the drawer open, my hand grazing across a large chefs knife. I held it as if it were a newborn child, small and precious. Quickly, I jogged down into my parents room, my body moving on its own. Frightened that what I thought was going to become reality, the door to my parents' room loomed ahead. I tiptoed carefully until I stood over my Father, a proud and strong man. I saw the knife raise, my heart racing madly. This couldn't be happening...

It came down like the force of an earthquake, and it felt as though time froze in the next few seconds. My Mother, sleeping humbly next to my Father, awoke with a bloodcurdling scream when she saw the scene before her. My Father lay in a heap, his stomach cut open to reveal his intestines that were dripping out of his body. He gasped in agony, bleeding out. I tried to tell my Mother I had no control, shouting at the top of my lungs, though my mouth didn't move, nor did any sound escape my lips. She dashed down the hallway, and I followed suit, noticing her snatch a phone on the way.

"Police?!" She screeched.

I caught up to her easily, and with a swift motion of the knife the phone fell from her hands. Her neck gushed out blood like a fountain. The last bit of light faded from her eyes, as she looked at me, horrified. Suffocating on her own blood, mother fell to the ground in a heap. Tears streamed from my dry eyes, and I started to hyperventilate. The pool of blood my Mother sat in grew larger and larger as I tried to figure out what to do. There was no way to save her. Hide the body? But where?! She had already dialed 9-1-1, so surely the cops were on their way. I needed a plan. To get away, forever. I stabilized my grip on the knife, and took a deep breath.

"Sir! Come out with your hands up!" A raging voice ordered.

Shit, already?! I have no time! Where was an alternate escape route? I scanned the house frantically. The door was busted down, police filing into my house fast as lightning, guns in hand. All thought evaded me, and I ran into them blindly, slashing violently. I thought I had a fair chance, but then a loud 'bang' reverberated through my ears. Falling to the ground, the faces of several men gazed at me, emotionless. I felt the bullet go straight through my head. Then a robotic voice thundered around me, seeming to stretch into space itself.

"Game over."

(Fun fact: I thought I lost this story somewhere in my phone notes. But I looked elsewhere and found it! This not-so-lost story has made it to your screen, so be happy.)

: This is a very interesting book - mostly because the heroine is quite charming and well rounded, and has very real issues to manage in her life. Most of all,.

I sit on the edge of my seat, willing him in his choices, as he navigates the life and death chessboard of d...

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

TruffleQueen: This piece of writing is more than just letters across a screen. Its more than just 40 chapters. Its a different world. And in that world, you get to experience so many things. I mean, you're practically sucked in there and once you just keep reading it gets harder and harder to get out. This st...

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Nate_L: I started to read this, excited about the story line. The writing style only made me more excited, I was stunned by Mikes ability to put this kind of story into words. It's Dashner-style, simple but sophisticated... (Makes sense to me, lol!)The beginning was a tad confusing, as I thought she was ...

Nate_L: This story was amazing. The descriptions allowed me to picture exactly what was going on. The characters were lovable, and seemed real. The ideas that were brought forwards seemed different. Recommended as something to read!
