With college only a month away, there was one thing on this list that I hadn’t accomplished yet. Backtracking for a second, I made a list on graduation day of things I would achieve over the summer. All of them had done, but one. I was 18, attractive, and a virgin. Probably the last one on earth. I grew up in an ultra-conservative home. I am a firm believer that my parents fucked once, and that was when they conceived me.Continue reading “Innocence sold”
Whatever curse this town had was so deeply ingrained that no one but the elders knew the truth. As the last of the employees left, each claiming their final check of the summer, Jimmy grew a little alarmed at the cars pulling in. He knew each car now parked in the lot, his heart racing when the first occupant stepped out. Jimmy hated this shit. They trusted him to handle the beast for all these years, but just because some dumb kids went wild, he was no longer trusted. It hurt him a bit, but fuck them. They could wrangle that thing now. After tonight, he washed his hands of it all. Little did Jimmy know, this wasn’t a social visit, and he was the one they washed their hands of and relieve of his duties.Continue reading “Wendigo 14”
“BRODY,” Seth screamed.
There was no reason to be quiet anymore. Wendigo was out there, and it was only a matter of time before he found and devoured them all. Seth and Brody met when they were in elementary school, and though he should be chivalrous and save the females, it was his best friend who he worried about the most. Sometimes there is that one person in life that you would give up for life to save. That was the case here.Continue reading “Wendigo 13”
Daniel Lightfoot stood at the park entrance, watching Jimmy scramble around like a chicken with his head cut off. He was showing his age these days. Maybe it was time like all the other elders had suggested. Daniel always brushed off the comments and snide remarks from others about his cousin. They weren’t cousins, but he had known Jimmy since he was a child. His father was good friends with the older male and had spent many holidays with their family. Jimmy lost his wife due to a tragedy when he was young. He never remarried.Continue reading “Wendigo 12”
The thought of being eaten alive didn’t set in for a minute or two. How in the hell did anyone think this was right? One teenager might go overlooked, but four? Never. Three of the four came from good homes. The only one that would be an asset to society would be the loss of Seth. Brody knew it was wrong to think that way, but goddammit, he wasn’t ready to die. Plus, he had already saved Seth once. This time he was on his own. The only person that Brady was helping was himself, and even the two girls would need to find a way to stay alive tonight.Continue reading “Wendigo 11”
The I-15 between Los Angeles and Vegas is one that is called the Lost Souls Highway. Driving into Las Vegas, the bright lights draw you in like a moth to a flame, but that long drive home can be the one that takes you straight to hell.Continue reading “Detour”
“Oh shit. That’s not real,” Brody said. He rubbed his eyes to clear his view, but his mind already knew the truth. Brody had caught the attention of the legend he never thought to be true. It was something parents told kids to get them to behave or to sleep. This creature that stood only yards away from him was one that had frightened him for years. Native American parents used the legend of Wendigo to keep their children from misbehaving, or so he thought. All he could hope for was to make up tomorrow and never hide from the truth again.Continue reading “Wendigo 10”
“Hey, did you see that?” Olivia asked.
Pointing to the restroom about 25 feet from them, Olivia brought Seth’s attention to the towering figure by the door. There was no way it was human. Not at that height. Even from a distance, she could tell it was almost twice her size in height.Continue reading “Wendigo 9”
“Can you believe that crap?” Brody said.
Shaking his head, Seth was pissed, but right now, his focus was on the girl whose hand he was holding. Plus, he knew Jimmy, and one day, that man was going to get a brick to the back of his head while he slept. Of course, that was just Seth acting tough, but he hated people who thought they could tell him what to do.Continue reading “Wendigo 8”
Huddled in the corner of the park, Jimmy pulled that damn thing from his pocket, slipping his reading glasses to the bridge of his nose, and squinted to see the screen. That damn thing was the cell phone he hated with all that he was. He rejected modern technology every chance he got, but right now, Jimmy needed help.Continue reading “Wendigo 7”
