|Re: LIVING NIGHTMARE(18+) by Intermilanfan(m): 11:26am On Apr 03|
Ikeja, for the most part, was a
peaceful place to live. No one could explain the utterly ridiculous events that occured
around the Kalu family and, if they
weren't a part of it, no one really cared. It had been at least a month since anything unusual happened. Josh sat on the
living room couch reading one of his many books as his brother, Mike sat on the floor watching television. Their cousin Sunny, who they lived with, was upstairs getting ready for an outing that
Just then, the power in the house suddenly went off.
A long and somewhat overexerted yell was let out from upstairs. Sunny was clearly annoyed. Josh glanced up from his book
unable to read in the dark as Mike slammed his hands on the floor, releasing a series of yells and
curses to the 'oh-so-gracious' PHCN.
"Somebody should get the torchlights fast!" Sunny
demanded from the top of the staircase.
Josh hopped off the couch and to his feet.
He looked down at Mike who wasn't moving anytime soon and glared. Due to the dark, his glare had no affect on the twelve year old. Josh sighed making his way towards the kitchen. He bent down and opened a drawer getting two torchlights out:
They only had two. He walked back into the living room tossing Mike one. Unfortunately,
Mike didn't know the torchlight was heading towards his face and with speed.
"Ah!" he flew back onto the floor as the torchlight slammed into his nose "Joshua! What the junk?!!"
Josh shook his head not caring much of his brother's new found pain. He looked up the staircase for Sunny.
"For goodness sake,what is taking so long?! Has the torchlight developed wings and vanished?!! " Sunny yelled from the top.
Josh sighed and walked up the stairs holding onto the railing. When he got to the top, he handed Sunny the torchlight.
Suddenly, a piercing scream was heard from the living room,startling the both of them.
Josh turned around quickly. Just then, the lights suddenly came back on. Josh's eyes
widened. Not at what was there but at what wasn't there.
Mike was gone.
|Re: LIVING NIGHTMARE(18+) by Intermilanfan(m): 4:39pm On Apr 03|
Sunny walked down the stairs with Josh, uncertain as to what just happened.
Josh picked up the torchlight he had given his brother not too long ago.
"Where is your brother?" Sunny asked.
Josh looked down at the torchlight then glared looking over at his cousin.
"i don't know" he replied, glancing around the room, "But I'm
going to find out."
"He's probably just hiding. You know, trying to scare us?" Sunny tried to remain calm but his voice became shaky.
"Mike! You better not be trying to scare us!" he warned.
Josh didn't wait for Sunny to come to terms with the fact that something really happened to mike. He ran off and searched
the entire house up and down for him.
When there was no clear sign of his brother or even so much as a trail to where he had gone, Josh decided to advance his search outside.
First, he checked the garage. It was rather dark inside. Josh tried to turn on the lights but they wouldn't go on. He was getting a
bad feeling in the pit of his stomach now.
He moved around the garage but no sign of Mike. He sighed lowly to himself hoping Mike was just playing around but somehow
knew that he wasn't. He knew something must have happened to him. He saw plenty of horror flicks to know this wasn't normal.
He turned to leave but was stopped by someone's presence.
Josh, for the first time in a long time,actually flinched.

His body loosened up, however, when he realized it was only his neighbor, Olivia.
Olivia tilted her head to the side, "Is everything okay? You look tense." She was concerned for her friend.
"No. Mike's missing." he replied.
"M..missing?" she stuttered in shock.
Josh nodded walking out of the garage.
Olivia followed closely behind him.
"What do you mean missing? Is he okay?"
Josh glanced over at her, "If he's missing,how would I know if he was okay?" he stated irritated.
Olivia saddened, "Oh…so what are you going to do?"
Josh stopped walking and turned to her.
"Find him." he narrowed his eyes.
He went to walk away then
Olivia who was now scared out of her mind looked up at him, "Yeah?"
Josh turned back over to her, "Did your house lose power today?"
She blinked and shook her head. "No. Why?"
Josh's eyes narrowed then he walked away, "Just wondering…"
Olivia ran after him, "Wait! I want to help."
She caught up to him and walked beside him.
"This could get dangerous.Also..." he paused then spoke harshly, "You're annoying and would just slow me down."
Olivia looked hurt but she didn't stop walking, "If anything happens, I can scream real loud or run for help. And I'll try not to
"Or cry?" he stared pointedly at her.
She nodded, "Or cry." She put her hands behind her back, "Let's just pretend this is hide and seek."
Josh rolled his eyes and looked ahead.Maybe pretending it was a game could be beneficial. It would keep his fear in check
and keep him level headed. He nodded, finding himself agreeing with her. Hide and seek it is then.
|Re: LIVING NIGHTMARE(18+) by Intermilanfan(m): 5:00pm On Apr 04|
Josh and Olivia spent a while looking for Mike. They spoke to all the residents . No one heard
from nor saw Mike that night.
Olivia was starting to get worried as was Josh. But he kept his head cool trying to think everything through, rationally.
"Are you sure you checked the house well?" Olivia asked.
Josh eyed her. "What are you implying?"
She shrugged, "Maybe hide and seek just isn't your thing, Josh. Let me give it a try." She smiled a bit.
Josh's eyelids lowered, "I don't see the harm in it…"
Her smile widened as he sighed and brought her back to his house. When they got to the house, Sunny wasn't home.
Josh tensed up for a moment then cooled down, remembering that his cousin had an outing. He grunted at the thought of
Sunny's selfishness and slammed the door behind them, causing Olivia to jump up.
Josh mumbled and walked further into the house.
"Okay, so where did you last see him?" Olivia asked.
Josh walked over to the exact spot where Mike had been standing the last time he
saw him. He explained exactly what happened earlier that day with impeccable detail. Olivia rubbed her chin during the
entire story. When Josh was done, she began looking around. She searched obvious areas then she looked in places that were beyond
odd. She opened the refrigerator door and looked inside. She walked into the bathroom and checked the shower.
Josh raised his eyebrows then shook his head.
"Olivia…what are you doing? Why would Mike be in any of those places?" his annoyed tone stopped her from looking
She turned to him and folded her arms.
"Sometimes you have to think outside the box, Josh."
"I do think outside the box."
"No you don't or you would have looked in the fridge!"
Josh walked back into the living room.
"This is ridiculous." he muttered.
Olivia followed him and put her hand on his shoulder. Josh's eyes shot up and glanced to the side and at her.
She saddened then smiled weakly, "Don't worry.we'll find him."
From across the street the lights in
Olivia's house caught Josh's attention. He walked over to the window and stared
intently at her house. Olivia walked over to him as well to see what suddenly caught his eye. When she looked over her eyes grew large from the sight. The lights in just her room were
flickering on and off. Josh's once shocked eyes dulled down into that of a sharp glare.
He darted out of the house and ran to Olivia's house. Olivia called after him and followed. However, he was quicker than she was.
Josh opened the gate and kicked down the front door startling
Olivia's mother, who was cooking dinner in the kitchen.
"Joshua?!" she cried out.
Josh looked upstairs as Olivia finally made it to the house. She looked over at Josh who made his way up the stairs.
"Olivia! What's going on?! What is all this" her mother cried out.
"I..I don't know mommy." She followed after Josh, "We're er.... playing a game."
Her mother looked over at her now broken door.
She grew angry picking the door up, "Does this game call for breaking doors as
Josh grabbed the door knob to Olivia's room.
Olivia covered her mouth, "W..wait."
Josh looked over at her, "Stay out here."
His stern voice gave her chills.
In every single horror movie known to man,when you opened a door, something was always behind it.
And that something.....was always bad.

na wa o. 7 posts in this thread all made by me and no one has commented yet. Make una say something na. Even if the story is terrible, at least let me know. I feel like i'm just talking to myself here. Or is it because the story is not rated 18+? Because that seems to be the kind of stories getting attention nowadays in this section.

Olivia watched as he looked back at the door and slowly opened it. Once the door was fully opened, the lights went completely
off. Olivia gasped:A sound that nearly caused Josh to jump, but he didn't. He glanced around the room, walking inside.
He reached over and flicked the light switch on and to his surprise, it worked.
The room lit up to reveal something disturbing.
Olivia's eyes widened as did Josh's. Olivia's doll,veronica, was hanging from the ceiling fan with a black shoe lace wrapped around her small doll-like neck. She spun
around slowly. The beads which made up her eyes were gauged out. Thumb-tacked to her body was a note.
Olivia's eyes watered as she was about to let out a loud scream. But Josh flashed her a quick glare. She covered her own
mouth and released the muffled screech into her tiny hands. Huey looked back over at the doll. He walked over to it with
Olivia put her hand out. "B..be careful, Josh." her voice cracked.
Josh stopped below the hanging doll. He untied it and let it drop into his arms, pulling the note off
Olivia stepped into the room and walked over to Josh, much like a scared puppy dog.
She stayed close to his back peering over his shoulder and at her doll. Josh handed
the injured doll over before reading the note out loud:
"Your brother's mouth is larger than life.
Whose life would you replace for his?"
Josh lowered the note then turned around to Olivia, "I knew it…someone took him."
Olivia saddened, "But who? And…what does the note mean? It sounds scary,Josh…" her eyes watered again.
"You said you wouldn't cry…" he reminded her.
A scream was heard from the living room.
Both Josh and Olivia froze.
"M..Mommy!?" Olivia rushed downstairs not thinking straight.
"Olivia, wait!" Josh ran after
What the hell was going on!?

You're doing well op
|Re: LIVING NIGHTMARE(18+) by Intermilanfan(m): 8:40pm On Apr 05|
Josh and Olivia both stopped in the middle of the staircase. Their bodies were frozen from the sight in the kitchen. Red splashes painted the floor as Olivia's mother was seen on the ground. The large kitchen knife she was cooking with was now dug deep into her chest. Her breathing
was so slow that if you weren't looking hard enough, you could barely tell if she was alive or dead.
Olivia covered her mouth unable to handle seeing her mother in such a way.
Her mother lifted her arm up slowly. It shook uncontrollably as she stared deep into Josh's eyes. "H..h..help…me." blood fell out
of her mouth as she spoke.
Fear had already taken a tight hold over Olivia. Josh watched as the color drained from her face. His body was frozen as well
but he somehow found the strength to move. Fear crept around his being but, at
the moment, was unable to take hold of him.
Then the sound of the front door opening stopped Josh in his tracks. The barrel of a pump action emerged its head through the
crack and stared Olivia's mother down from across the room. She looked over at it with wide eyes as a loud fire blew her
face clean off. Her arm dropped down hard as blood splattered all over the walls.
A single drop of blood hit Josh's face. He heard Olivia scream and saw the door open wide. His body reacted before his mind did. He grabbed Olivia's hand and
ran to her bedroom. A second fire was heard. Josh grabbed Olivia quickly and dove into her room before the blast could reach them. The wall in the passage exploded with five large holes left behind.
Josh, who was now on top of Olivia, pulled away from his frightened friend and slammed her door closed with his foot. He
looked down at her then got up and locked the door behind them.
He turned back over to her, "We have to get away from here!"
Olivia's eyes were blank. Her fingers twitched around each other as she mumbled to herself. She wasn't sobbing but tears poured down her face. Josh didn't
have time to comfort her. He heard the killer coming up the stairs; they were running
out of time.
"Get under the bed." he whispered.
She didn't move.
"Olivia!" His voice penetrated the wall of denial Olivia put up after seeing her mother's death. This wasn't a bad dream. This was
real and she had to realize this horrifying truth before she was killed as well.
Olivia turned to Josh. Her eyes grew wide as a loud gunshot blasted the doorknob off the door. Josh side-stepped out of the way of the door avoiding the blast as Olivia put her hands over her
head slamming her body against the floor.
Josh turned to the door, clenching his fists.
"Now,Olivia!" he snapped.
Olivia couldn't stop her body from
shaking but she obeyed and crawled, cowardly, under her bed. She watched Josh stand his ground with narrow eyes. He
waited for another gun fire but it never came. Instead, the door swung open slowly.
Josh balled his fists, feeling fear itself lurking close by. The door opened fully to reveal…..

|Re: LIVING NIGHTMARE(18+) by JoyAda1234(f): 9:53am On Apr 06|
Keep it coming!
|Re: LIVING NIGHTMARE(18+) by Intermilanfan(m): 12:42pm On Apr 06|
Josh's grip loosened hesitantly. Relief flowed through his body as he walked over to the
door. No one was there. He thrust his head out and saw nothing in the hall passage.
Stepping forward a bit, he peered down the stairs and again saw nothing. He pushed his back against the doorway, sighing. A
warm bead of sweat fell down the young boy's head. Fear was slowly taking control of him.
Olivia cried out from under the bed. Josh turned around quickly and ran over to her.
She was still shaking. He touched her arms, causing her to jump. When she saw it was him, she cried more. Josh's eyelids lowered
as he pulled the young girl out from under the bed. Once out, she slammed her body against his. She clung to him for dear life
and cried the hardest she had ever cried before.
Josh, who normally just stood still, found himself raising his arms and wrapping them around the poor girl.
"…I'm sorry, Olivia." He closed his eyes as she sobbed harder begging for her mommy
to come back.
He gripped down lightly on her back, "I'm so sorry…" he opened his eyes vowing to find his brother and to stop whoever was behind all this.
"W.w.we…should call the police." she croaked out.
Logically that would make sense. But for some reason, he don't think they would be of much use.
Josh nodded though, figuring it would put her mind somewhat at ease. Olivia pulled away from him, still shaking. He looked at
her and wiped her eyes, causing her to blush lightly.
"Stay here…" He stated curtly.
He stopped in the doorway but didn't turn around to face her.
"I don't want you to have to see your mother like that again…Wait here. I'll get the phone." he said.
Olivia put her hand on her chest and gripped down on her shirt. She nodded as if he could see her and watched him walk
out of the room. Then, she ran to the door way holding onto the edge.
"Be careful" she whispered.
Josh nodded as he walked down the stairs.
He stopped in front of the kitchen,
surprised at the sight that wasn't there. The blood.Olivia's mother's corpse. It all wasn't there.
"Olivia." he called out to her."Come downstairs."
"But…" she started.
"It's okay.trust me." he cut in.
Olivia didn't need to be told twice. She walked down the stairs, fearing what she might see. When she got to the bottom, she
just stared at the empty kitchen floor.
"Mommy.?" her voice was a mixture of grief and confusion.
Josh looked back at her but didn't say anything. He turned to look at the phone but didn't pick it up. With the blood and body gone, the police wouldn't believe them even if they did call. Josh was slightly disappointed. He knew the police wouldn't be of much use anyway but they could at
the very least protect Olivia while he figured everything out. Olivia walked over to Josh and grabbed a hold of his sleeve. He glanced over at her.
"We can't call the police now…can we?" she asked hesitantly.
Olivia looked back over at where her mother once was. Her eyes fell into a daze.
She couldn't come to terms with the events that had occurred just moments ago.
Josh turned to face her.
"Go and get Veronica." He reached into his pocket and took out the note.
Olivia winced at the sight of the white piece of paper. She backed away and went upstairs to get her doll. Josh felt himself glare as he read the note over and over,unanswered questions piling in his head.
Who wrote it? What does it mean? Is it a riddle or something?

|Re: LIVING NIGHTMARE(18+) by Intermilanfan(m): 7:28pm On Apr 06|
When Olivia came back down the stairs,Veronica was dangling from her arms. Josh folded the note and put it back into his pocket. He looked over at Olivia and put his hand out to her. Olivia blinked, a bit surprised by his action. She
glanced away shyly but took his hand none the less.
He pulled her a bit and they walked out of the house.
"You're not leaving my side, Understood?"
She only nodded and her eyes watered.
"Olivia, focus." he shook her.
She blinked and looked over at him. "What did you say?"
"I said.." He closed his eyes annoyed then opened then looking back over at her, "...I
think this is a game. I think finding Mike is how we win. I'm not certain but finding
Mike was our original mission anyway so let's stick to trying to find him."
Olivia looked down, "Yeah…" she
muttered as a tear fell from her right eye.
Josh frowned but he was surprised how well Olivia was taking it. He figured she
was in denial but still.
He looked away from her.
'She's stronger then I gave her credit for' He thought.
Josh squeezed her hand lightly, "Don't worry, Olivia."
She wanted to believe him more than anything. But deep down she knew this was only the beginning.
And so did Josh.
