Horror / Thriller Novels and Short Stories
Pietro believes it shouldn’t be that difficult to kill his work mate. After all, theirs is a dangerous job. But when they’re up there on the top of the wind tower, and the storm is raging, everyday rules no longer apply.
It’s a stifling June afternoon. School is only a vague memory for Davide and his friends. They’re playing in the woods, nearby the ruins of the Dimottas’ farm. But this playful atmosphere is suddenly ripped apart.
For the only portion of wall still intact of the old farm, blackened by a long forgotten fire, stands black like the pupil of a snake. Ready to strike. To change Davide’s life forever.
When the moment comes, we’re all in this alone. His grandfather’s words echo in Davide’s mind.
When the moment comes…How true. Back then he was really too young, a boy really, to fully understand the meaning of those words. Now instead things are different. He is different.
As wealthy as he is, Franco can’t wait to put his hands on his mother’s inheritance. Fact is, his lifestyle is an expensive one. Sports cars and escorts–especially certain types of escorts–aren’t exactly cheap.
Of course, he could look for a job. But, really, why should he shackle himself to a job when that crone of his mother keeps the purse strings, and she keeps them so unreasonably tight?
And now, after the umpteenth row with her, he realizes he’d better take the situation into his own hands. A plan. A plan is all he needs.
