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.

Emperor2000: I joined Inkitt and downloaded this book following a friend who has been on here sometime recommending it. After they spoke about it a bit, I thought why not give it a go. Initially I only expected to read a few chapters, as I have little time to spend reading (not as much as I like). However I c...

Kashaf Azmat: The concept is excellent everything is well defined that you can picture the whole scenario which makes you feel connected to the plot and this is the thing that catches my eye and this what i am looking for in every novel.Keep it up

Pam Lobato Ceja: The plot is interesting although for me the ending feels a bit rushed, since a lot happens in very few pages. I did notice a few grammar mistakes here & there, but nothing too noticeable.Overall, I enjoyed this greatly.

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...

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...

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...

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.

debmart6901: I could not put this story down. I stayed up reading when I should have been in bed. could not get enough, could not wait to find how it ended. Great story telling. Great detail. Loved it. The characters were very vivid.

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

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). ...
