Randy

Horror / Thriller

Chapter 1

My name is Jimmy, and I am nine.

My little sister is Randy.

That’s short for Miranda Willy, y’ know.

And we have a dog named Mandy.


Ma and Pop, they treat us good.

Give us lotsa toys and candy.

Dolls and books and trains and cars.

But none of that pleases lil’ Randy.


See, Randy screeches and Randy screams.

She ain’t a quiet soul.

She makes Ma cry and Pop yell.

And say things that begin with “bull…”


Randy, she’s spoilt, and she’s only five.

She won’t eat lest Pop shoves it down.

Ma, she says it’s just a phase.

Pop says we’re the talk of the town.


Me and Randy, we get along good.

Even though she always hurts me.

Once, I gave her me Teddy, and she smiled!

Then she went ahead and bit me.


One day I have to scream for Ma

Yell, “Ma, Randy’s eating the dog!”

Ma pulls lil’ Randy off Mandy’s neck.

She sees the teeth marks and begins to sob.


Pop and Ma take Randy to a man

In a white coat and a great big smile.

When they are done, the smile is gone.

Randy’s been screaming the entire while.


Two years later, and Randy is seven!

I buy her this great big bunny.

She rips out its eyes, and eats its insides.

Then she laughs and tells me it’s funny.


Randy, for fun, still likes to scream sometimes.

But now she mostly laughs.

It makes the kids run and the adults gasp.

No one seems to like Randy’s laugh.


Ma and Pop talk in the dark nowadays.

They talk ‘bout sending Randy away.

I tell Randy, warn her to be good.

She says it ain’t no fun to behave.


One morning I wake up and it’s quiet around.

It’s never quiet, not in our house.

So I walk down to where Randy sleeps.

Open the door as silent as a mouse.


Randy’s asitting in her bed.

Her pink bedspread all covered in blood.

Ma’s foots nearly the pillow, her head near on the floor.

And her body’s all covered in cuts.


Pop’s mouth is wide open in a frozen scream.

From where his face lay near the shelf.

His legs are strewn across the windowsill.

And I feel me wet myself.


Randy’s got two arms, one of Pop’s, one of Ma’s.

She chewin’ on fingers and grinning.

“Them good!” she giggles, teeth completely dyed red.

I fall to the floor, my head swimming.


“Come try some, Jimmy!” she says to me, laughing.

She holds a dead hand for me to try.

I know I should run, scream, cry, flee for help.

But I all I can do is say “Why?”


I don’t yell “What heck?” or keep wetting myself.

I don’t try to think of what my sister is.

Because I’ve known all along, Randy, she’s not just someone.

She’s special. Always was, always will, my lil’ sis.


She’s sad I’m not moving, and stands up on the floor.

Her slippers are soaked with yuck.

She moves ahead several steps, stops, tilts her head.

And in a deep, growling voice, says, “Come.”


I don’t come.


My name is Jimmy, and I am twelve.

My little sister is Satan for sure.

That’s all I can think as she bites out my throat.

And adds my body to the pile of gore.

The author offers you the opportunity to bring y...

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

europeanlove: I gotta hand it to you. I love reading. I read books everyday. When the book is good I can read it in probably 13 hours. Your story was amazing. Great prose, very imaginative. Incredible dialogue. I am deeply impressed. Keep it up.

Kaitlyn Bier: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

NRF: I love this story, it has a little bit of everything in it, mystery, adventure, murder, innocence, love and a surprise twist that will leave you hungry for more! Great read! NRF

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

nikole carr: After starting and stopping several books tonight, this book caught my attention from the very beginning and i stayed up until 6 a.m. to finish reading. The plot has many twists and the sexual scenes keep it interesting, too. im a florida native so the Caribbean location is fun to read about. th...

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.

Gayle Gunderson Boyce: I loved the book. Couldn't stop reading it. The story was good with a strong build up of suspense and sense of urgency to catch the killer. All clues pointed to Talbot yet enough things didn't add up to keep us looking and thinking. Jack Creed is a likeable character with lots of gut experience. ...

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 ...

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). ...

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!

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

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...
