fiction

Horror fiction that delivers on its promise to scare, startle, frighten and unsettle. These stories are fake, but the shivers down your spine won't be.

    The Dispossessed (Part 2/6)

    The chanting stopped, leaving only the sick sound the water made as it slopped over the sides of the pool. As the family and officiant made their way back to the plinth, the portable monitor screens shifted color from flat black to deep indigo.

    The Core of F.E.A.R

    It was a cold frozen over winter and the blackest of all nights when Loren was babysitting her siblings Katie and Adam. It had been a long day and she was just putting the children to bed, when she heard a noise outside, a rustling on the rickety porch… Loren slowly walks downstairs to the sliding glass door in the kitchen.

    Gracefall

    As usual, Sister Maria Grazia sensed the evil long before she could see it.  As the black sedan car rolled through the Tuscan hills, she could feel the pressure weighing down on her head.  She closed her eyes, pinched the bridge of her nose, and counted three slow breaths. Ordinarily she would have prayed, but she needed to save her prayers for when she got there.

    The Story of The Box

    The Story of The Box

    It was many years ago now when I was just a little girl. That’s when I saw this for the first time, stuffed secretly in my Grandmothers loft. We were playing, my brother and I, when we crept up there. It was dark and musty, and I remember there being a cold breeze drifting across from a tiny hole the bats had made in the roof to roost beneath the beams. We could see the light streaming in from outside through this tiny gap, illuminating a small wooden box.

    Apocalyptic Dream

    Apocalyptic Dream

    The last thing I said was I hated humans wanted them all dead. I’d lost all faith in humanity for some many reasons. Thinking the the was one thing but saying it out loud was something I could never take back and and soon regret. It was late one night, and I was sleeping, and I was restless alone in my bed, tossing and turning. I remember thinking I woke up but soon would realized I was trapped in dream. It was about 2 in the morning when I thought I woke accept I looked around me and I wasn’t in my room I was outside and standing in lake watching men in hazmat suits pouring chemicals into the lake, and in the distance it looked some in a boat was pouring a big container into the lake too.

    Twin Flame

    Twin Flame

    Twin flames are said to be two souls that mirror one another. Two divine souls that when they come together, magic happens beyond the soul’s belief. Twin flames have known each other for lifetimes and some can be stuck in repeat lifecycles that could be dangerous for the two and others around them if they were to join. I had no idea how dangerous this union could be when I set the intention to find my twin flame. I had been single for about a year after a rough break up with my son’s father. I had been doing research on this twin flame energy and was intrigued by the fact that someone was out there, just for me… so I thought.

    The Kid In The Werewolf Mask

    The Kid In The Werewolf Mask

    The kid walked through the doors of the store, and walked with a purpose. She strode in that way children have when they know where they’re going. Arms stiff at her sides, moving at a good clip, head not turning to see the displays as she passed. All business. She arrowed right at the first bank of logo-festooned endcaps and then left again at aisle fifteen.
