To Dance With A Fetch

By StorySmitten

Paranormal, Horror, Thriller, New adult fiction | Paperback, eBook


It has happened to you. You see someone you recognize from across a crowded room, but once you get closer, you realize it’s not the person you thought it was. You’ve tapped on a friend’s shoulder to say hello, but once they turn around, you find they are a complete stranger. You’ve caught a glimpse of yourself in your peripheral vision when there was no chance it could have been a reflection. Are these instances a trick of the eye or a simple case of mistaken identity? Is it possible that something far more sinister is at play? You may recognize the term Doppelganger. It refers to a double or look-alike of a living person and is known to be a harbinger of bad luck, illness, or death for anyone that sees their double or the double of a loved one. Irish folklore tells of a phantom they refer to as a FETCH, for it fetches the souls of the living. Is it simply a tale of the superstitious? How would we know? What if there was indeed such a being and it has learned to manipulate its victims by utilizing the vast technologies of today? How many lives could it infiltrate, control, or take?

I am inspired to write by living life, listening to others, having an open mind to things I do not understand, and dreams while asleep or wide awake. Most of my stories share a common thread and that is a hint of fear. It starts when we are children and night terrors are quickly dismissed as wild imagination. As teens, we trek through old cemeteries in search of the great beyond and as adults as we try to make sense of it all with our factually trained minds. Spooky things, people, places, scents and sounds together or alone can create a powerful adrenalin rush and it floods the senses. Darkness promotes fear simply because we cannot see what MIGHT be out there. Anticipation and excitement merely grow stronger as our mathematical minds try to find the logic in what we just heard or to crack the code in what we just witnessed. The more mysterious and frightening something becomes, the more we want to discover in order to compute the final answer to the obscurity that surrounds us. What better way to spend your time than by adding to or trying to solve a bit of fright. That is why I write.
