Blurred Silhouettes

One day I decided to go for a ride in my new GTO,I went to a small road not busy to drive, and when darkened decided to go home but a storm broke out above my , the rain was so strong that the headlights of my car not illuminated at more than two meters I couldn't move like that.
I could look out the window and in the distance I could see a blurred silhouette of a structure or that looked like?.
I decided to go there. Arriving, I parked my car and went out, the rain didn't diminish, certainly was a structure, It was a house at first sight was in good condition, I knock on the door and I could hear the echo of my knocks bounced inside the house so I decided to return my self, Just as I was the door opened and a lady came out, so beautiful, that seemed out of place.

She said, "Good evening, I'm Heather," and invited me to enter, She seemed to be very friendly and had a comfortable look, Once inside I noticed that the house had something unsettling even creepy..

She offered me a cup of tea, then she asks me, "What can I do for you" with a soft, sweet voice, I answered that just needs a place to shelter from the rain, then I look out the window and I noticed that the rain has become a drizzle, I knew it was a chance to get out of there; I thanked her hospitality and I go to the door and she pointed me out a red umbrella next to the door, and tells me to take it to keep me safe of the rain. I said "Thank you Miss Heather, "Don't even mention honey" I said goodbye to her and get into my car.

I came back to my home. I put the umbrella on the table and went to sleep. The next morning I woke up and saw that umbrella over the table and remembered that sympathetic lady. That's when I decided to get her back his umbrella ..
When I arrives at the place where the house supposed it was, I taken aback to find that there was such a house in that place, there it was just a foundations remaining and in the middle of it there was a plaque that read, "Never give up your dreams, dreaming isn't enough, fight for them" Memory of Heather Lovegood "Lady Heather"

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.

Sarah_M_G: This story was truly gripping from start to finish. The way the author used Scottish dialect throughout the novel really helped to put you in he in the place where it was all happening. Every character was well described and thought out. How they all fitted together really worked and loved how t...

Shweta Somwanshi: I just chose to read this out of nowhere and now I can't stop. Hats off to the author who made the reader swoon away with words so beautifully! I loved how I was able to imagine everything so explicitly because the writing was simple and easily comprehensive with a touch of complexity somewhere b...

shotgundriver: As with all horror fiction, the reader must be able to suspend disbelief to digest this story. Fortunately, the first-person style of the story is so casual, and the protagonist, Ashley, so familiar on many levels, that I found myself sacrificing sleep to stay up and read, as if I was anxiousl...

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.

Deleted User: What a story. It may be short and small but it is mighty and massive in creativity. However, I did not feel any romance in the story rather than a lot of horror. It was a great read and I cannot wait to see what this author has next on the agenda. Sometimes short stories have the best content and...

Avintika Narayan: I quite liked this novel because it's horror. The start was brilliant. It made me so curious that I actually wanted to read it. The author did an amazing job. J.T's first encounter with Jeff the killer was amazing. The moment when J.T woke up and realised that nothing actually happened to his fam...

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). ...

danijelstoilkovic: I really like this story. The characters, the mysteries, that bonding in the end, but I would really like to see what happened next. Is there a second part? And this would really be one cool horror movie and if I was the director, I wouldn't change a thing.It's awesome!

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.
