Description

Six short stories make up a quick-read of creepiness and unease. The Watcher's Eyes: Paul's life can't get much worse, he thinks. He is still grieving his father's death and misses the dog he couldn't bring with him when his mom announced she was moving what was left of her family to Colorado--to live in a house that's falling apart. But there seems to be something far worse wrong with the home... Hidden Winter: Randy melts when a cute new girl moves in next door, but he soon realizes her parents are abusive and take up professions that make his skin crawl. Worse yet, the two won't let their daughter out of the house. After her father catches her with Randy, she disappears, but not forever. Hot4UBabe: Two best friends enter the world of online dating and feel as if they've hit the jackpot when a mysterious woman seems to be all they've ever wanted. When it's time to meet, though, things take a drastic turn. Visitor's Pass: An overnight registration clerk at a local hospital is tired of visitors yelling at her over the hospital's policy of securing a visitor's pass before gaining entry to the rest of the facility. If only they knew the story behind the policy, the visitors would understand. But there's more dark history even the registration clerk doesn't know... Holy Matrimony: Neya tries to move on from her recent breakup with her abusive ex, and what better way to do that than by practicing a little bit of retail therapy? When she spies an old framed photograph, she has to have it, even though everyone else finds it creepy. Neya soon learns those people might be right. Sweet as Honey: 12-year-old Gordy is teased and beat up by bullies. His old-fashioned grandmother doesn't offer much help, besides telling him she's sorry it's happening, but he needs to grow up and be a man. Fed up with the bruises and blood and name-calling, Gordy decides to step up to the plate and serve sweet revenge.show more
