DARK SHADOWS

Darkness surrounds the town of Oasis.
The only escape is through the magical door.
The door that the villagers keep hidden.
Soon all the residents will need to escape.
The Oasis Hotel is engulfed in dark shadows.
Half-filled glasses sit on the tables at its bar.
Tables and chairs fly across its patio deck.
Where are the guests?
The Dead Game has begun.

THE HAUNTED HOUSE

The old house stands alone,
dark and deserted,
on the overgrown lawn.
A wind rustles through the fallen leaves.
The only sound in the dead silence.
No footsteps to break the quiet.
No sounds of life to lift the spirits.
Only the dead for company.
Their spirits walk the house.
No footsteps to break the quiet.
For the dead don’t leave footprints.

FOLLOW THE CANDLES





End House is dark and deserted.

The invitation called for a party.

No one is here to greet us.

Flickering candles line the hallway,

Beckoning us to follow.

Gargoyles tower over the carpeted staircase.

The door behind us locks shut.

What do we do now?

THE DEAD GAME 

THE NIGHTMARE NEVER ENDS

prettysuicidal:

Once you begin to read,
your nightmare will never end.
You will hunted and pursued
through dark houses, revolving rooms,
deadly traps, and never-ending horrors.
There’s no rest for the weary in Oasis.

The Devils Frying Pan

There is a very strange rock on Otley Chevin. The Chevin is a large escarpment overlooking the market town of Otley in Yorkshire. In fact it dominates it, being visible from all over the town looking Southwards.

It is an odd stone – sat high on the very top of the outcrop of rocks on the peak of the escarpment. A large bowl is cut in the middle of the rock and a channel is cut from the bowl leading down to the bottom of the rocks. The whole carving looks like a large frying pan. It is definitely man made. Whoever carved it must have been very patient, it being carved in ‘rock hard’ millstone grit.

The Devils Frying Pan

I have asked some of my archaeology friends and no one seems to know what it is. It may be modern, but it could just as well be ancient. The Chevin is a big landmark, and the moors surrounding the Chevin are covered in ancient carvings, tombs and stone circles. There are some strange markings around the bowl which (to me) look like Neolithic markings – but they are not in any website or antiquarian book that I have found…

We were told by one of our teachers whilst at school that it was called ‘The Devils Frying Pan’ and that it was a Druids alter where human sacrifices were carried out.

As I can’t find anything out about it, I’ll go with that 🙂

RIDE WITH THE WIND

The Dead ride in the night

 

The Dead ride the night.

They ride with the wind.

The daylight is their enemy.

Be sure to lock your doors.

Cover your windows.

They might pass your house.

Fate determines who they select.

You might be next.

They are a select group.

They torment their victims.

They are a bloodthirsty bunch.

You might soon find out.

See you in hell.
