So, I've been kicking around this idea in my head for the past 10 days or so. I'm skeptical about it because it is a horror story and I just don't normally do them. I've only done one and that was in high school for Lit class. I got an A on it. My teacher liked the surprise ending. I was surprised she was surprised. *chuckle* Then, I usually can figure out where a story is going long before it gets to the end. I stopped reading mysteries because the last one I read, I figured out who the murderer was by page 50 and I had a few hundred pages left to read. And it was a very good story. It was even made into a movie. *chuckle* That's just the way my mind has always worked.
Still *shrug* my muse doesn't normally go in for that kind of stuff.
I thought it was just one of those ideas that swirl around my head for a moment and then disappears after awhile. Then I saw how the story ends and realized, it could be my sort of thing after all. *chuckle* Now to figure out when, where and how it starts. I already know the why and a few of the who.
For the record, there is nothing wrong with Horror stories. I love a good scary story. Scary, not necessarily gory. I am a Stephen King stan! *chuckle* Though I haven't read any of his recent stuff. I've been too busy working on my own stuff.
Maybe when I get a few more of these stories out of my head, I'll have time to put some other people's stories into my head.
To that end here is Chapter 15 of TTOC.
