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.

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

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

Kayla Wentz: This book had me hooked from the beginning! I kept coming back for more. It only took me a day to read! I couldn't put it down! Absolutely A-Mazing! This book keep the story going and there's never a dull moment!

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 ...

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...

hypaalicious: This story follows two main characters, Zoey and Derek, on a winding adventure that sucks you in from the beginning. It was easy to get into and get a feel for the world that the author is projecting, as well as all of the warring factions and difference of ideals that would otherwise be very co...

Meri Amber: The plot is creative, fun and addictive! The writing is superb and the characters are really well put together. Definitely highly recommeded!

: 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.

Chris Rolfe: BOY!!! I sure love what Aer-Ki Jyr did with this series. IMHO he captured the essence of what stargate is all about. Thru out the Stargate stories Aer-Ki wrote Stevens and John Shepard some of the main characters in his stories are pursued by a corrupt I.O.A.. All the while Stevens is changing in...

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Leah Brown: This was an amazing read! I was hooked from the very first chapter, holding my breadth to see what would happen next. The characters are rich and vibrant, and the world Danielle has created is fascinating. If you love YA, you MUST read this book. Such a smart, brilliant debut novel. I loved it!

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...

Nate_L: I started to read this, excited about the story line. The writing style only made me more excited, I was stunned by Mikes ability to put this kind of story into words. It's Dashner-style, simple but sophisticated... (Makes sense to me, lol!)The beginning was a tad confusing, as I thought she was ...
