Tick Tock

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 ...

ronaldpolk: I can honestly say that I truly enjoyed this story. Yes there were times I thought to put it down and start another, but some of the characters called me back. The pace was appropriately slow in some places and engaging in others. I related to Steve and Ron, all characters had just the right amou...

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.

C J Lawson: Nicely done. Good story with good characters, as well. I was very entertained by the story line, from beginning to end. I would definitely read more of this author's work.

Shelley Miller: The ideas and the set up and this are amazing! The feel of the story goes from science fiction to horror to suspense all in a big, thrilling ball. I really like your character so far and her powers and the idea of the ark being a person. The world is intense and gritty and clever as well. While a...

Tony Lee: Great ideas. Some mistakes here and there, but not too much to break the immersion :) This was my second book here, and I'm pretty satisfied! Well I can't think of anything else to write so I'm just gonna fill the space up with random words. Magazine holder sidney sheldon first bible shack tom ha...

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view. It would be interesting to read more about these two - and the ghost-busters that inf...

Dina Husseini: To be honest I never knew you could make a fantasy this scary. I really enjoyed reading your story. At first to be honest, it was a bit boring but then it got so interesting and fun and (also you even scared me at times). I would really love to see this story on the big screen. It does deserve sc...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

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.

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