I never met Dave, but I personally know people who did. He’s still missing.
Of all the posts, this is still the most unsettling to me. Because, as far as I can tell, I don’t see what other people see. It’s like that dress some people swear is blue, and other people swear is gold. Everyone I’ve talked to says they see a set of eyes on the pages in the pictures that appear to be looking back at you, but I don’t see that. I see regular writing, like you’d see inside any book. And every time I look, the writing changes. This was the last time anyone heard from Nancy herself. Though, sadly, we saw her again.
Stay tuned for the conclusion of this story tomorrow. Meanwhile, be sure to check out the novel inspired by the book OBSIDEO:
Rumors of a deadly book have been floating around the dark corners of the deep web. A disturbing tale about a mysterious figure who preys on those who read the book and subjects them to a world of personalized terror. Jesse Wheeler―former guitarist of the heavy metal group The Rising Dead―was quick to discount the ominous folklore associated with the book. It takes more than some urban legend to frighten him. Hell, reality is scary enough. Seven years ago his greatest responsibility was the nightly guitar solo. Then one night when Jesse was blackout drunk, he accidentally injured his son, leaving him permanently disabled. Dreams of being a rock star died when he destroyed his son’s future. Now he cuts radio jingles and fights to stay clean. But Jesse is wrong.
The legend is real―and tonight he will become the protagonist in an elaborate scheme specifically tailored to prey on his fears and resurrect the ghosts from his past. Jesse is not the only one in danger, however.
