Nothing Is As It Seems (An Original Group Story)

This is a horror story that I thought would be cool to write.

Chapter 1

Crossing The Line

My name is Josh Tucker, I am 18, averagelly fit and this is how I escaped death for the first time.

I woke up and checked my alarm clock, 7:30am, time for breakfast, I got dressed and walked into the kitchen, made some toast and sat at the table eating it. While I sat there I thought about my life, all the things I've done and I did not feel proud of myelf, I decided to visit my mother, see how she was doing. As I was driving I noticed the sky was an unusual red colour, I dismissed it as unimportant and continued driving.

When I got to my mothers house I knocked on the door and got no response, I continued knocking for a bit and eventually, the door just fell over, a little shocked I walked in, I couldn't find her anywhere, but when I opened the door to her room I saw the floor was covered in a pool of blood, I walked inside and all of a sudden my mothers body fell out of a cupboard and I jumped, startled by her sudden appearance, I checked her body, there were no signs of harm on the back of her body so I turned the body over. On her face was carved


I turned and quickly ran to the front door to find the door had been replaced by iron bars, I checked the windows to see that they were clouded in black fog that absorbed a chair when I tried to break it with it, not knowing what to do I checked the house for anything I could use to defend myself from whatever it was that had killed my mother, I found a meat tenderizer, not much, but I'm not looking to kill anyone.

I gasped for air, my body exhuasted from what happened, when I checked my mirror and saw my mother sprinting after my car, I yelled,
"Damn it!"
And continued driving, stomping on the accelorater, too afraid to look back, I drove to a police station, jumping out of the car and sprinting inside, I slammed the door shut behind me and looked outside to see my mother was gone, but scratched into the hood of my car was,
