Everything runs out quicker with her in the house. Where has she got to? Elisabeth struggles to her feet and grips the rollator. She rolls it across the room, lifts it over the doorstep, goes along the hall, listens from the bottom of the stairs. I drink two cups in the morning, myself. Coco comes stomping downstairs, walks past her into the kitchen. Elisabeth fills the kettle. Puts the full kettle onto the rollator and wants to walk to the other end of the counter with it.
The water sloshes out. Dark look. Away with her, away. Leave it, leave it. Let it go. Elisabeth experiences panic at the thought of Coco going back upstairs. Away with this, with this wrongness, this unseemliness. The child understands these words. Elisabeth sits down on her rollator.
Onwards now. Coco back in the kitchen. One of the things. One of the true things.
Oneofthethings oneofthethings ofthethings. The wooden buffer for the toy train. A bigger buffer now. Now wait for the words, everything passes. Just let the story become: Things were never resolved between the mother and daughter. Silence still. Come on. What is happening? Where is the shouting, the wailing, the stamping?
I had to move out. I already had to leave. That I had to move out? And how long has it been going on? Too tired. Tumble then. In fact, she should sell this in the "Diet Book" section; I'm sure a lot of people will skip a few meals after reading this. This story just defies description; it's too good for words! Dec 29, Doreena rated it really liked it. This was a short that packed alot of creepiness in. Not creepy in a spine-tingling way, but creepy in a backwoods, cannibal sort of way. Great story.

Glaubt man schon beim Prolog zu wissen, wohin sich die Sache entwickeln wird, liegt man falsch. Feb 22, Emily rated it did not like it.
How Relevant is Food Craving to Obesity and Its Treatment?
This could have been a good book, if the author hadn't tried to throw in so many twists and turns; missing relatives, cannibalism, incest, and a gay guy thrown in just for the heck of it, etc. The gore was way overdone and there were parts that were so nasty, I felt like I was going to barf. The author writes slasher fic, gore filled horror instead of the Paranormal Activity type of horror, so it came off as campy and more like torture porn than horror. I would not recommend reading this book, s This could have been a good book, if the author hadn't tried to throw in so many twists and turns; missing relatives, cannibalism, incest, and a gay guy thrown in just for the heck of it, etc.
I would not recommend reading this book, save your time and money.

Jan 26, Jessica rated it it was ok Shelves: supernatural-horror. This the most unoriginal piece I've read. It's not terrible if you're looking for a short horror story but as far as originality this story has been written before multiple times. The lack of originality made this a boring read. If you want something creative then move on but if you want the same old same old then this is the story for you.
Jan 09, Ashok rated it liked it. More plot twists and turns than your average 'teens-remote-location-mutant-redneck-cannibals-always-runs-the-wrong-way' type of movies that we all have seen. And all that in one chapter. Stories like this could make completely enjoyable five minute movie-lets - whoops, there goes my million dollar business idea. Nov 02, Nancy Castell-Stuart rated it liked it. Pretty good short story. I enjoyed the horror..
Was looking forward to a little more "R" rating as it had promoted. I'd say it was more of a PG13 rating. The story was fun and had a nice twist. If you like horror books, you'll enjoy this one. And since it's a short story, you'll finish it pretty quickly. I'm off to read Plain Jane next! Oct 27, Bree Vanderland rated it liked it. I really don't know what to say about this short story.

It was interesting at first how you think you have everything figured out, but again it took a twist as many books do. Guess you can only expect so much out of a free kindle book on amazon. Jan 08, Tina rated it did not like it Shelves: kindle-books. People do not melt from high heat they would simply burn and turn to ash but not melt like goo.
Overall the story was your basic wrong turn into cannibal family. I found it all overly grusome and other parts completely devoid of detail and fluffy. With all the high ratings I felt confused at the hype. View 2 comments. Jan 17, Grace rated it liked it Shelves: indie-authors. I liked this book. There was great gory action. But I didn't feel that the author answers my logical self.
There were some inconsistencies, at least in my mind, to help the story be a little bit tighter. But over all I liked it. Jan 03, Mark Polino rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction , Sick and twisted in more ways than one. There is a lot you won't see coming. Don't read this over dinner.
