As I walked into my local library, I felt at peace. Some people are addicted to heroin; I am addicted to literature. I love the way libraries are so organized, not only are books separated by genre but are also placed in alphabetical order. Beyond the placements of books the library is a place of poetry, a place of silence. I like the quiet atmosphere. Some find this insipid, but they are mad.

I search the shelves for an arousing story. With so many different choices this could be an appalling task. How can I possibly choose? I browse many different sections, coming across the horror section. Today was a good day for something truly malevolent. Finding one I go towards the common area and sit near a young lady. She wore a tightly fitted white blouse and skinny jeans. Her hair flowed past her shoulders. Her facial features are soft, and enjoyment radiated from her. I found her attractive. When I began reading I kept catching myself staring at her but as the novel went on I became more fascinated by the story, such majestic writing. My heart raced as the lawyer approached Mr. Hyde…

A group of young adults walked into the library, yelling and cheering at each other. They are ignoring etiquette. Sometimes and only sometimes while I am reading a tale a baby or a child or even an adult cries, screams, or yells. It ruins the story, makes me frustrated. It takes me away from my mysterious island. My blood begins to boil from indignation. My heartbeat slows down, becoming louder and louder until everyone can hear it. I know they can hear it because everyone stares at me. Everyone looks at me laughing! Their eyes scream at me! Humiliating me! I will show them! I will show them all! One of these days I will rip their voice boxes out. One of these days I will gouge their eyes out! I will laugh as blood drips from my hands.

I am not mad! Why and how can you say that I am mad? My mind is sharpened, it has not diminished. I can and will kill them! I will do it so slowly and quietly! No madman would be able to accomplish what I will do with such skill, such organization! The silence will be so that Stevenson, Verne or Poe could not write such beauty and would find this to be egregiousness. But today is not the day. Maybe tomorrow, today is most definitely not organized.

I shrugged, and closed my book. Today I will not have my time of rest, soon there will be silence but not today. I took another glance at the attractive lady. Her blouse was red. Her eyes showed consternation, what a shame she was such a beauty. I would have loved to take her home, but I’m positive that she was wearing a white blouse when I set down. I cannot be with someone so disorganized. But…She is quiet, I like that. I walked past her, walking towards the bookshelf the replace a strange story. I had to step over a body. His face looked panicked; I would be too if my larynx was lying next to me. More importantly he was quiet, I like that.

    Pretty good. Had to read the last to paragraphs over again to fully comprahend what happened. My only problem was that he said, I’ll do it another day. Then it turned out he did it that day? I’m guessing th author was trying to make it seem like he slipped into a blind phycotic rage. Never the less, Good pasta!

      I agree, but I noticed the author copied a little of this story from Edgar Allen Poes the tell tale heart

    I agree with mastersparklez, if she said another day, then why rip the persons throat out as they were leaving
    Isn’t THAT being disorganized and so the narrator/protagonist is Being a huge hypocrite?
    Even so.. Good story :)

    Brilliant. As of yet, this is the only creepypasta I have honestly enjoyed. Anyone who doesn’t understand it is clearly quite slow.

    This was okay.

    He should be careful about murdering people, though. He’s going to get blood in his library book and then they’ll take his library card away :(

    Perhaps just my interpretation, but white-blouse may have ripped the guy’s throat out. Her blouse was stained red, after all.

    Wonderful pasta, but you seem to have stolen the thing with “i am not mad, would a madman have been so sharp, so organized? I think not,” from edgar allan poe’s the tell tale heart. Waait, or was he quoting it? i don’t know :P

    “Maybe tomorrow, today is most definitely not organized.” Interesting, subtle surmise of the twist in a cryptic parodox? nice touch!

    I think maybe he did not realize he killed them?
    either way, really good. I gave it a 10.

    To the people who complain about how he’s saying he’ll do the murdering another day, only to have found the dead bodies that day: that’s the point. He’s thinking in his head how he’ll avoid the follies of other murders, how he will be the sharpest and most clever killer of all and never be caught, only to fall prey to a blinding madness that the others fell to.

    It seems a little strange that you directly copied lines from The Tell Tale Heart.

    Good story. Enjoyed the way it was written although….. Finding out lines had been copied from Poe’s “The Tell Tale Heart” was very disappointing.

    Good pasta, I particularly enjoyed it because I tend to have those thoughts fairly often myself. Not so much the organization, but the rage over being distracted, and people being rude and making noise like stupid animals.

    I liked the ending a lot as well, I wonder if it has potential to stretch out? 9/10

    Is the woman’s blouse red stained with her own blood or is he just a whacko?

    This made me think of "The Tell-Tale Heart"

    Interesting story, but I found it a bit hard to keep up with the ending.

    I presume her shirt changed to red because he killed her and blood soaked it? That was a very interesting take on it, making the character not realize he had killed her in his madness. Also, the resemblance to the Telltale Heart was overwhelming. I love that story, but perhaps making the references more subtle? Getting inspiration from Poe in horror stories is very understandable, but such obvious similarities distract from the differences in your story, which really was quite interesting.
