When I was in elementary school, I can't specifically remember when, I somehow developed nightmares. I dreamt often that I was abducted by aliens and that was often enough to terrify me, their simple appearance and seemingly frightful desire to take me from my...

A young girl is playing in her bedroom when she hears her mother call to her from the kitchen, so she runs downstairs to meet her mother. As she's running through the hallway, the door to the cupboard under the stairs opens, and a hand reaches...

I'm afraid to look outside windows at night. I guess some people are. It's just paranoia, right? You don't want to look outside your window at night and come face-to-face with an abhorrent creature. But, again, it's just paranoia, right? Too many scary movies,...

You’re home alone. It is a stormy night and the power went out. You hear strange noises coming from upstairs. Drip, drip, drip. β€˜Probably just the faucet’, you think. Drip, drip, drip. There it goes again. You run up the stairs and turn the faucet...

It was 11:00 at night, so I turned off the television, brushed my teeth and climbed into bed, securing the soft black covers over myself. For a few minutes, all I saw was darkness, and all I heard was silence, but then suddenly, I heard...

Day 1: Today things started to get strange. Before I elaborate, I need to give some back-story. About two weeks ago I got back from fall vacation. For the first week, my friend Owen was not at school. He didn’t answer my texts, calls, and...

To Whom It May Concern: If you are reading this, it is for a good reason; I promise you. You didn't stumble upon this by accident, this isn't just a cool story I thought you should read, and no, I'm not trying to sell you anything....

When you look out over the desert, the sand lifts from the parched earth. Gently spinning in tiny cyclones, before settling again, as if the heat is too much for even the dried particles to have the energy to keep going. The wind is hot,...

If I were you, I'd stop reading. I know a lot of stories say that, but I'm dead serious. Stop. No? Well, it’s your choice. I can't stop you. Well, consider this story a warning, and let’s leave it at that. It was a completely normal day....

I awoke from a deep slumber due to the loud rain ouside. I was used to it though, hell it’s Seattle after all, rain central. I rubbed my eyes and happened to gaze out my curtain-less window just at the moment when a cloaked figure...

Shortly after turning 12 my family moved to a much larger, albeit older, house. I had my choice of 3 bedrooms (being oldest does have its perks) and resolved to bunker down in the basement. This decision was based on isolation and being able to...

Do you hear it? That near silent thump, thump, thump that can be heard when all else is quiet? No? Listen, strain your ears for the slightest sound. Do you hear it now? That is the heart beating in the chest of the...

The memories I have with my Grandmother are very fond. She used to live with my parents and me when I was about six and stayed with us until I went to college. She raised me on many wonderful things such as spontaneous trips to the...
