Chapter One  Not Allowed to be Normal  “S o got any plans for tonight?” asked Charlie. “Nah, just the usual. Falling asleep on the couch in front of the TV,” Stanley replied in a tired voice. “Come on,” said Charlie picking up a king and placing it on an empty slot. He was playing solitaire on his computer instead of working, “It’s Friday night and Halloween is coming, I think it’s gonna be twice as crazy out there tonight.” “It’s Crime City Charlie, every night here is Halloween night and crazy is kinda your thing. I'm good at normal." Stanley said without looking at Charlie who was sitting on his right. He was instead focused on the report he had to submit before the end of the day. “Exactly, this is Crime City, nobody is allowed to be normal here. This is against the city’s spirit.” Charlie said funnily. And that was the pro

Previously - Don't Let Her See My Face Chapter One  Dreams Come True T he dense forest reeked of gunpowder and blood. The thick air was covered in smoke. It was still awfully quiet. He was listening attentively, hiding in the bushes behind a tree. His eyes were open looking for anything that might pose a threat. His ears were trying to catch every single little sound that could be of the enemy. He was breathing slowly, not trying for it to be heard even by himself. Then the radio chimed. “Alpha, do you see anyone?” He pressed the button on his walkie-talkie. “No, it’s quiet but there’s gotta be somebody left, stay sharp.” Then he saw a movement.

A seven years old boy finds a doppelganger of him while playing in his backyard and he does the worst he could've done, he brings him home. Reading time: 23.93 minutes. Chapter One Changed Plan I had been watching him for a few days now. He was seven. Only child. I had learnt his routine. Six hours in the school, rest in the house, secure and out of reach. The only time he would come out was just a little before sunset, to play in his backyard. I watched him play all by himself, alone. I pitied him. He had no one to play with but that was ideal for me. This was the perfect time to strike. So I made a plan.  The next evening, when he was playing in the backyard, throwing a big ball around, I approached him from the bushes.

Inspired by Chapter One Lost  W hy is it so dark in here? She thought. Why is it so, she looked around, quiet and deserted? She was walking down a street which looked familiar. There wasn't anyone else and there was not a single light but everything was still visible. Where is this light coming from? She wondered. Everything was glowing with an ambience that it was difficult to locate the source of light. It looked like the time of evening when there is no sun in the sky but everything still glows with light reflecting off the red sky except the sky was dark. Pitch black, no stars either. She had no idea where she was or who she was. She walked further on the street and reached the intersection. There were no street lights or traffic lights, there was not a single living thing in
