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.

kotabsavage91: This young author really knows her stuff. From the 1st chapter I was sucked in and entertained the book. The characters are rich and well thought out and the plot keeps you guessing all the way through to an imaginatively well exacuted showdown. Keep up the great work, I look forward to more of ...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

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.

noelia herrera: I could not stop reading this book. it was truly great and it caught my attention quick. there was some misspelled words and some misplaced. but overall, IT WAS FANTASTIC! great job. I recommended this book to all my family and friends.

Alex Rushmer: I just read the first two chapters of this story and really enjoyed it. I have to admit......I have a real problem with insects, especially nasty ones like what are in this story. I don't think that I'll read any more, but I did like what I read. It was interesting seeing different instances in w...

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...

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.

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). ...

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...
