These Eyes

By Elfvamp All Rights Reserved ©

Horror / Scifi

Beginning + Journal 1-2

What I created was not what I was hoping for. I wanted to notice everything but to do so, I had to give away my sanity. These Eyes that I  created overloaded my brain causing me to fall into insanity. Seeing things that weren’t even there. Hearing laughter in a empty house. I later found out that it was my own laughter. I wish I had never created these eyes but before I knew, I felt lost without them. I created an unbreakable box containing hundreds of memories. Here I stored most of the information that is irrelevant to me. Then I later destroy it. But these eyes have caused me to fall into loneliness. To seek help from no one except imaginary friends that my insanity had created. I used to be someone powerful but I have fallen into darkness. A pit so deep that no one could drag me out of. I used to be idolized for my jokes and skills. Now people can’t even remember my name. I have become an outcast of society. No, a forgotten existence.




Day 1-Journal

Whoever reads this, I do exist and I am human. If you stumbled upon this just by chance, I am a writer and an inventor. I am making this journal to hope people won’t follow down my path and fall into my mistakes.

See, I created advance technology. They were Eyes that could see all forms of light, color, and record it all. It may seem cool but it destroyed my mind. I am surprised I even have the sanity to write this.

Because of my lost of sanity, I have detached myself from society. And the shadows haunt me in my lonely house. It doesn’t help that I am a writer. My own creations mock me and follow me around in my house. I try to dismiss them but they always are there, emotionless.

The most common is a girl that looks like a younger me and a man. I have no idea who the man is, but he looks familiar. A little girl as well walks around with the him. She is similar to me but also to the man. They scare me the most. Why do they follow me? Why do they hate me?

Sorry, I lost it there. My eyes aren’t working well. They aren’t sending the right amount of data to my collection system. As such, my mind is processing too many things.

This one color that keeps flickering on the page I guess you could say is close to a red, but with the depth of a deep sea blue with light shining through it. Almost like a mini painting but unified. Ugh, why did I decide to write about it? Whoever you are, stop forcing me to write complicated things.


Day 2-Journal

If you are still reading this, I’m sorry about before. I’ll try to make more sense. I guess I should say more about myself. I am, as of right now, 23 human years. At the age of twenty I started a gaming channel which quickly took off. I was called Arya Matter with nearly a million followers. It was fun at first but I wanted to be the best of the best. That’s why I created these Eyes.

My own were bad when I was growing up so I had to wear glasses regularly. I was fine with it but it could have been way better. So I created new eyes with their capabilities far exceeding a human’s.

But these Eyes created too much information so I had to create a memory storage as well. The time period between each invention is what created my insanity. Well, I was also slightly insane before all of this because...I think I forgot.

I guess you could say it was the basis of this insanity. Or you couldn’t. I don’t know. All I know is that the shadows are dancing as though they are celebrating my failure.

I was trying to create a device that would allow me to use telekinesis. It was a slight success at first but everything quickly fell into ruin. It quickly broke and electricity sparked from it. I quickly threw it into a bucket of water. Luckily nothing more bad happened.

I guess if you are reading this in my time, everything must seem so advance and scientific. But it actually is all  easy. But, I’m too tired to go further into it. I think I actually forgot. I forget a lot of things. Surprisingly.

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

Steve Lang: I thought this story was imaginative, and well thought out. I also think it was an original piece, and not a rehash of previous scifi stories I've read in the past.Thank you for the effort put into this tale, and I look forward to reading more of your work!

Shayleen Seiberg: See, I wasn't sure if I'd like this story. But it turned out extremely well. It kept me interested the whole entire time. The only thing wrong with it is there are multiple grammatical errors. Not punctuation wise, but spelling wise and word placement wise. But overall, I loved the book.

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...

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

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...

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.

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Mark-Mikkel: Got directed here by the author herself. Started reading it, schoolday turned into a day of reading. I really like the apocaliptic world she has created. There are some oddities in the writing tho, but I guess they are because she did have to do it for NaNo (which she wrecked, good job!). In the ...

sambolie: Couldn't stop reading this!! Beautifully engaging story & I love the richness of the characters. I hope to see the next volume soon! I can't wait to see how the girls carry on to Invasion Day with all that happened.

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.

Roger A. Fauble: Excellent read, the only thing not to like is that I could only read it at home on my computer. I'm a character reader, I get into the characters, their story, who/what they are. In this story characters are introduced and developed allowing you to really get into them. Next the story is develop...

kathryncoard: I really enjoyed this book. It was a fast paced book, that kept me interested . Yes, it was political commentary, which I found to be relevant to many things happening in the world. The snippets from the journal show the " boiled frog " analogy that is clearly relevant . Interesting that peop...
