Tick Tock

Horror / Poetry

Tick. Tock.

"Hey, did you hear?" the child's whispering banter enters the others ears. Two lips, crimson as blood, hidden by the petite girls hand. The other child, sitting next to her, watching the show rolled by the teacher. The other girl's eyes widened at what she had whispered. In such childlike tones. The little girl's hand wrapped around the gun in her pocket. Simply as she proceeded to erase her friend from this world.


The little girl woke up, unable to move she watched the sky. The beautiful sky, with clouds dancing across the atmosphere. The sudden interruption by her friend, her murderer, just smiling. Lying above her, smiling. The teacher yet continued to roll on. The movie rolled on.

"Clockwork" her friend said "They're all clockwork. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. Will they ever shut up?" The child laughed, but her friend stayed still. Her friend sighed as she spoke of the glorious day when the clock would stop. That’s all she would ever speak about. Until the day the ticking and the toking finally drove her mad. The little girls death resulted in that.

I suppose I shall name the two girls, for it is getting quite confusing. These are just labels, not names, simply representations of two girls. Furoris is the murderer while Hostiae is the murdered.

"Hey, did you hear?" Furoris whispered in Hostiae's ear.

"Tick tock, tick tock. You're clock is going to stop" Furoris tasted Hostiea then, Furoris wanted blood. She wrapped her tongue around Hostiae's ear as best she could. She felt the gun in her pocket. She couldn't wait, the anticipation was killing her. She placed the end of the gun to the ear she had just tasted, she couldn't wait to taste the ear after it was drowned in a pool of blood. She wrapped her twisted fingers around the trigger, and went down to taste the remains of Hostiae's ear.

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. It didn't stop. The gun lured her into the darkness. She pleaded. But her pleas were sarcastic. She wanted this. She longed the blood. She longed the violence. She wanted it so bad. Her crooked fingers strangled the trigger as she drowned herself in darkness. The puppets fell of their strings, useless, limp. They were so pathetic, all of them. The teacher did nothing, the teacher rolled the film. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. The puppets fell, surrounding the room in deep red. Detached from the strings, they were useless. How pathetic! How lame! How gross that they belittle themselves so! Filling the void of their souls with useless garbage! How funny! How pitiful!

Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

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 ...

Natasha Jade Smail: a good read and keeps you interested throughout the whole story and has some gruesome moments that were well described to get you into the story.

Andrea Norton: This story was so well put together. It was suspenseful, the storyline flowed perfectly and it was full of interesting twists and turns. I found myself getting very involved in the story and read it in just a few hours. I'd really like to read more of this author's work!

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...

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.

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.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read.

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.
