I gripped the hard-cover book with trembling, sweaty hands. The title stared up at me, its eyes devoid of all humanity: "Fundamentals of Geometry and Algebra".

A Man who loved his father woke up from a nightmare—only to find his son's mutilated corpse sutured to the living room ceiling. The child's skin tore as its black-veined eyes forced its withered head to turn towards its father's bedroom door; watching, with vacant eyes, its grandfather skitter quietly towards its father, suturing kit in hand.

A human stood before the Father and Son, whom were meticulously perusing a rather important book. There was no greater dread or horror that the human could experience after hearing the words, "Your name is not written in the Book of Life."

My son is the sweetest child I've ever known. Now I know the recipe is just perfect.

One day, the scientist researching immortality was asked why he was so dedicated to it. He said it was because another experiment showed him the afterlife.

For years the loud booming mad laughter plagued our lives, never stopping for a second. We should never have tried to find God.

They say Nothing Is Scarier. I know better.

According to legend, cameras steal souls when they take a person's photograph. That's ridiculous — there's no such thing as a soul.

I was really sad when Daddy said we had to have Rex put down because he was sick. At least I got to keep his shoes.

I thought being Buried Alive was the worst. Then I heard the whispers.

Dying Alone is impossible. Some thing is always there waiting for you to expire.

Tonight, the news report covered the Serial Killer responsible for decapitating twenty people and taking their heads. That reminded me that I need to clean out my fridge.

When the aliens first arrived they insisted they wanted nothing but a close relationship with humanity. I guess it doesn't get closer than laying their eggs on our paralyzed bodies.

I dumped my boyfriend six months ago. Most of him.

They say that in space, no one can hear you scream. Let's find out, shall we?

The fortuneteller I met told me I would die the day I saw a mountain upside-down. I chuckled again at the silly prediction as I boarded my flight home.

I was blackout drunk last night and couldn't remember what happened when I woke the next morning. The news covering a fatal hit-and-run involving a child jogged my memory.

Your baby's laughter is the most beautiful sound in the world. At least until you remember your baby was stillborn.

I watched a documentary covering various parasitoid wasps that lay eggs in hapless hosts which hatch and devour them. Uneasily I scratched at the large red bump that appeared on my side a few days ago.

"Without looking down from my book, I reached down and idly scratched my dog behind her ears. Hearing a growling sound, I looked up and saw Meg on the other side of the room, snarling and bristling as she stared at something just below me and to my side."

"It wasn't until grandpa showed up like always for Sunday service that we began to wonder if there were more than traditional reasons for burying the dead under six feet of soil and a slab of rock."

"In any case, there is no chance of this spreading as long as Specimen D wasn't exposed to the open air." "Wait, Specimen D?"

I found a dead mouse on the driveway this morning. Our cat has been dead for a week.

The news mentioned that someone had put acid in our water supply. Just a few minutes ago, my son went to take a shower.

My boss didn't show up for work this morning. I guess the hit had worked.

The embrace of death was a gentle one, my mind faded into nothingness, I took my deeds to the grave.
