Excerpt from Deadliest Rhymes by Cory Blystone

Book 3 in the Deadly Rhymes Trilogy



Banging on the door, crying for help, Sheree wondered if the rest of her life was also going to be filled with darkness. 

            Alone.

            Trapped.

            Scared.

            “The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout…”

            Suddenly she wasn’t alone any longer, but trapped and scared were still around, preying on her fragile emotional state and eating it like candy. Even though the chamber was pitch black, she swore she could see a faint glow coming from where the voice—the eerily familiar gravelly voice—sang.

            “Down came the rain and washed the spider out…”

            A teal silhouette pushed itself out of the shadows at a snail’s pace, creeping closer and closer to Sheree. Her feet were stuck in concrete. Her body stiff as a corpse.

            “Up rose your sister quietly from the grave…”

            Closer.

            Closer.

            So close she could feel the coldness of the monster’s breath on her face, freezing her eyes, nostrils, and lips until her lungs stopped.

            “And soon my power will be restored again!”
