Omegle

Other / Thriller

Chapter 1

Omegle is pretty weird sometimes. It's probably because every other person you meet on it is a pervert, but never as weird as this time. But I'm getting ahead of myself here; let's start at the beginning.

One late Saturday night, I was bored as hell and had to resort to the old fallback position: flirting with anonymous strangers.

I went on Omegle and started a chat. I got a few trolls who did the usual "asl" and when the found I was male told me to piss off. After those few false starts, I found a more polite woman who stayed and talked for a while. Then she said she had to go and ended the conversation.

By this time it was around midnight and I decided I would just try once more. I found someone and was about to ask asl when whoever it was said something that chilled me to the bone.

"Hi John."

How did this person know my name? I asked them quickly.

"Because I know you, John. I've been watching you.

Holy crap. That was creepy. "This is probably a prank. Lots of people have the name John. It's probably just a guess. Besides, it's impossible this person could actually know who you are," I told myself.

That logic didn't do much to comfort me.

"Why have you been watching me?" I asked.

"So that I know when I can kill you."

My heart skipped a beat. This was either a vicious prank or I was chatting with a insane killer.

"Why do you want to kill me?" I asked, hoping that this would give me some idea who this fruitcake was.

"I don't hate you, John. I just want to kill you. It's what I do. Oh, by the way, expect a visitor tonight."

And the nut left, leaving me sitting there, scared out of my wits.

It's 1 o'clock now. It's been an hour since he left the chat.

I hear the sound of someone trying to open the door.

Oh no.

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

C.K. Bachman: Just read the first chapter. Love how the main character thinks and is conflicted over his wife and the trickery he uses on her.

briggy1998: I really enjoyed the book, even though I had to skip a few lines, because at times it could get a bit disturbing🙆🏻😅What I would have liked is if you could have given a bit more insight into jack's and fiona's relationship, especially the epilogue was a bit short 😬Other than that an amazing story!

Tony Lee: Read this during my 7-hour flight. You've done a great job describing each situation, but I believe there is room for improvement. Also, the ending was a bit abrupt and I think the last part where Terry Hunter was brought in again (slight spoiler) wasn't really necessary.. But overall the story k...

cuzley: I enjoyed this read, the romance and the "who done it" worked well together, I would recommend this story to both romance and mystery readers .

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

matrixmark: I thought that the introduction to this was relly well written and structurally sound in its presentation.The introduction to the cabin in the woods was good too.
