The Surrogate by Eric Butler
In their search for a surrogate, the Wilkenses thought they struck gold with Alina. All she wanted was a flight to the United States and a warm place to stay during the pregnancy.
But some things are too good to be true …
Robb is having a sneaky cigarette outside his home when a woman approaches him, she's staying with his neighbours across the street, and is looking for some company. It's a brief visit, for now… Six months later, Robb and his wife are trying to conceive, but it's getting tedious and no fun anymore, all the spontaneity has gone for him, and something has changed in the way he sees his wife now.. After having dinner "hosted" at a friends, they notice something weird about the house across the street, the house the strange woman, Alina, was staying at. They decide to investigate, and on doing so, they find out just how weird things really are…. Things escalate really quickly, to a freaky, frightening conclusion! Unfolding rapidly and full of mystery, suspense and intrigue. Just wtf is going on? A horrifying, creepy, gore filled story of desire, jealousy and manipulation!
That’s one way to shake up the neighborhood
I’m sure we can all think of a few obvious reasons as to why daily life could go awry when a seductive foreigner comes to your block. Welp you won’t be getting one of those more obvious plots here. Pleasantly surprised as to how this unfolded. If you aren’t familiar with Butler’s work, you are really missing out!
