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.

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.

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

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...

mariamalkorashy: Simply alluring, I have become addicted. Now the rest of this message is simply words because it notified me saying that my Review was to short haha. It has done it again so yup I am still here writing once more haha.

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...

Barbara Zavela: Do you know the song, 'Imagine' by John Lennon?If you had a chance for a world like the one described in that song, would you grab it with both hands or turn away and reject it.This story pulls you in from the beginning with well-written scenarios. The author offers you the opportunity to bring y...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...

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.
