Corruption Of Rainy Lake -- Chapter IIFlames rose up in the small fireplace in front of the couch. Darkie flopped onto the couch in the dimly-lit livingroom and brushed his damp rainbow and black hair out. The blanket that he was sitting on was still damp from having slept wrapped up in it all night. Pulling it out from under his legs, he sat it on a shelf above the fireplace for it to dry out. Milky dawn light passed through the thin curtains that covered the windows on both sides of the furnace. He shivered, remembering having to be soaked in ice water while wondering across the frozen lake that he'd fallen into for hours. He hugged his knees from where he sat on the couch, now not wanting to ever go outside again. The fire started to die down a bit, only leaving a few embers glowing among the ash and burnt wood. He watched the rest of the fire fade away and slowly got up.Corruption Of Rainy Lake -- Chapter II22 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
Darkie stepped out onto the porch and glanced around. To his relief there was nothing around but a few birds up high in the trees. He picked up a few

Nina again, today mother told me I'll get a pet, any I decide!
This is totally great!
Just thinking of it, taking care of a living animal is really great, can't wait for it.
Nina again, little upset at mom, she told me. I could get what I wanted.
Mother and I headed to the pet shop, she took control of the whole thing and picked out a bunny, I really don't mind, just want a puppy.
Most of the day she just sits in the cage, eating, drinking all day long.
It's so boring watching her, mother told me I couldn't even take her out of the cage alone.
I opened the cage anyway, the bunny jumped out of the cage, almost threw me on the ground.
I headed back inside, feeling mad at her. Kind of feel bad now that I didn't find her.
After dinner, mother started yelling. All her clothes have bite marks.
She headed to the cage and started yelling at me about it, I acted clueless.
I'm glad she left and destroyed her clothes, tomorrow we get a puppy!

I can hear the wind whistle in my ears, the crunching of the leaves under my shoes, and the scratches of my pencil draw wildly across the page of the sketchbook. There was something else in control.
It wasn't until I completely ran into a figure in front of me. The person dropped their groceries and I dropped my sketchbook, letting some pages break free from their bounds.
“Sorry,” I whispered, beginning to pick up the woman's food, and she frantically started to put together my sketchbook. When I picked up one of the brown paper bags that were nearly filled with groceries, my eyes widened as the woman stares in utter silence at the first page of the sketchbook. The wind picked up its pace. Some of her brown hair blew in her face under her nose and in her mouth that didn't close. I swear, her pupils in her eyes shrunk.
She turned the page.
My blood ran cold.
She quickly looked up at me in fear and dismay. The emotion mixed in her face. Her lips spread in len

It first started the day I was relocated for my job. More and more doctors in Portland were requesting help in the newly built wing at Shriners Children's Hospital. My old job in Banner Churchill was shot down a mere few days before I saw that they were in urgent need of more nurses that had a long term familiarity with children and the general workplace. Since I had around six years of medical practice and history, carried along with a bachelor's degree as a surgical assistant (mostly for mothers that would rush in almost on the daily), I was hired nearly on the spot.
I guess it took me a bit to actually register what I had just done, since I drove quite a ways just for an interview... and here I am,

Well, that was what Ace Beckham thought only seconds before his friends Catrine and Chance urged him towards the house. A middle aged woman stood on her lawn, clothes and blankets neatly folded on the grass. The group of teens looked at the things which were neatly placed in rows, the elder watching with pleasure.
Ace found himself crossing his arms, stubbornly looking away from the woman.
"Why, you look like a nice young boy," The woman holding the garage sale sent a smile towards him, her voice sweet. Once Ace looked at her he found himself immediately looking away. "I don't plan on buying anything," He explained rather embarrassed, "I just came with my friends. That's all." The lady gave him a disappointed expression, causing Ace to mentally slap himself. "Well," She sighed, "Carry on."
After that encounter, Ace didn't particularly care abou

My red gaze shifted to my mother, blood tears staining my waterline. Her green gaze was filled with all different negatives emotions; hate, disgust, envy... She never loved me... I was just a mistake to her... A hellion. Like I asked to be born... Mother reminded me everyday I wasn't supposed to be born. She said it was because of me that she couldn't have normal children... I never knew my father, nor did I have siblings. Then again, mother never liked children... So why did she complain about not having normal children?
My own gaze contained negative emotions; sadness, confusion, and different others.
"Sarah... What is in your hands???" Mother asked in a tensed voice.
I turned away from her, the tears of crimson finally falling. I didn't speak.
I heard the woman take a few steps in my room and yell, "Sarah! Answer me when I'm speaking to you!"
Dead of NightI sat alone in the dark, in an abandoned house I had crept into right after the last rays of sunlight had sank like teardrops from the skies. I huddled with my jacket, sitting on the floor with my back against a wall next to the window, waiting for the night to pass. Distant lightning would occasionally pulse through the closed blinds, making the shadows dance around me. I kept waiting for one to illuminate a demon, inches from my face, but it never did.Dead of Night16 hours ago in Short Stories
When I felt confident that no one or nothing saw me enter, and there were no other occupants, I slowly leaned forward to look out of a hole in the blinds. The night was pitch black, like the entrance to a coal mine. No electricity flowed any longer, and tonight even the moon was fearful of making an appearance. There was nothing but blackness on the other side of the glass, and it felt as if it was pushing to get inside.
A flicker of lightning flashed across the glass and startled me. I caught a quick glimpse of the houses across the s
The Beast Below- Chapter 10.Night was as quickly replaced by day as it was slow to get to that point. Rory sat up, groaning at the banging headache he hadn’t evaded in his little sleep. A tired moan sounded from the floor. Rory scooted to the edge of the bed and peered down. Maria was curled up in front of the toilet, her arms wrapped around her stomach even in sleep. She was deathly pale, and dark shadows bloomed underneath her eyes, compliments of lack of sleep, and feeling so shitty.The Beast Below- Chapter 10.17 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
Rory slipped down from the bed and lightly shook her shoulder, murmuring,
“Maria. Time to get up now.” She moaned again, and opened her eyes, sitting up slowly and looking at him through heavy eyes. She took one look at him, and grumbled hoarsely,
“Don’t you say anything.” Rory smiled good naturedly at her.
“You look well this morning,” he said sarcastically, brushing some strands of sweat soaked hair from her face.
“Shut your gob,” she answered in a tired tone, placing o
Predator and PrayShortly after burying the old priest who raised him, an old world priest is bitten by a vampire and lingers near death. Although he has devoted the past 20 something years of his young life to the Church, he reluctantly admits that he is terrified of death because...what if everything he holds as absolute truth is dead wrong?Predator and Pray1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters
The vampire that bit him finds the suffering of the priest's soul quite comical and taunts him as he lays dying.
"Your Christ cannot save you, you wretched and ridiculous servant. But I can. You must simply give up your life's pious dogma and become mine. Of all the questions and doubts ringing in your head at this most crucial moment, the only one that really matters here and now is "Will you...or won't you?"
The priest clenches his jaw against the answer that his survival instinct wants him to scream. He looks from the grinning vampire bending over him, to the crucifix hanging on the wall of his stark chamber. "Oh God...please...Father, I'm afraid." He sq
Corruption Of Rainy Lake -- Chapter IDarkie trudged through the thick sheet of snow that covered the lake, every once and a while glancing behind him to see if he was followed. All that was visible back there was the black hole in the ice where he'd fallen through, every time he caught sight of it it'd bring the thought of how cold he was rushing back. Now his hoodie was almost completely frozen and stuck to his chest, and he could easily hear the water slosh around in his converse sneakers. Adam was following him, pleading and yelling out his name, but Darkie didn't give him the attention until he heard a faint scream from behind them. He stopped as the echo died down from somewhere in the lifeless forest and turned to look at Adam. The light snapping of twigs could be heard in the distance also.Corruption Of Rainy Lake -- Chapter I1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters
"What was that?" He asked like nothing had previously happened.
Adam decided to state the obvious.

“WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON HERE?!” One of the counselors yelled as they opened the door and stepped inside. Parker spun around, hearing there was an exit to the scene, and darted for it, only to run into the counselor. He tugged at the guy's jacket and pointed frantically at the bloodied cocoon stitched to the top bunk by sticky, white strings. The counselor covered his mouth, trying not to vomit.
Anthony Thorn and Billy Warring ran to the front of the cabin to the scene with the flashlight on their phones turned on. They paused in their tracks only a few feet away from the bloody mess. Billy gagged, but Anthony spun around, fell to his knees, grabbed the wastebasket by the bed, and vomited into it.
Another counselor from the girl's group ran in the cabin behind the other with a flashlight and shone it on the massacre. Her jaw dropped and her brown eyes widened in terror.
“W-What the hell?” she stammered.
“Go to the main office and call 911! Now! Go!

“See ya later, creep,” Anthony Thorn snarled and pushed Sally back, then walked towards the bus for camp. He chuckled dryly, but was stopped by Coraline, who was leaning on the open door. She snagged the front of his black, sweatshirt and aggressively pulled him close to her face.
“I'll see you on the other side, bastard!” she hissed, then shoved him back into Robby Reed, who dropped his backpack from the force. Robby tumbled back, and nearly tripped on his own heels. He pushed Anthony to the side and was about to kick Coraline in the shins. But Alex Hurtsch gripped her shoulders from behind, lifted her, and dropped her, practically shoving her a foot away from the bus door. She caught her footing and almost charged at him with all the rage inside of her, but paused, and folded her arms.
The Destiny Gang trudged onto the bus with the other kids. Billy Warring, who was the first to get on, jabbed the kid in front of him, Parker Johnson, in the spine. Parker let

Anthony dropped the sketch pad and kicked it, making it slide to the end of the tree house. His heart was beating rapidly.
“It's her,” he stammered.
“What?” Billy hissed.
“It's that creep. It's her.”
“What do you mean?”
“She's been murdering our friends,” Anthony choked.
“N-no, she can't be,” Billy cried looking away. “What did we do?”
Anthony caught his breath. What have they done? He remembers ripping one of her drawings in half. He remembers her blank face, and the tears that shed from eyes that never blinked. These eyes deceived them. What lied behind them?
He swallowed hard. Who's next? He slowly turned his head towards the sketch pad. Billy hesitated to pick it up. When he did, he turned to the third page. . .
Oh yes, there was something there.
But it was unfinished.
Billy's jaw dropped.
There, at the far left corner of the page was only apart of something different. It looked as if it
