The Dead walk the bitter cold.
Florida nights have lost their charm.
Wolf may be centuries old,
But he will never do me harm.
THE DEAD GAME
The night caters to our whims.
It follows our deadly sins.
Our darkest nightmares come alive.
We’ll do anything to survive.
Monsters stalk us in our sleep.
Creatures rising from the deep.
It creaks open the bedroom door.
I see it move across the floor.
My head turns to accept my doom.
I am one of them all too soon.
Who sits on my shelf
Who casts shadows
on my bedroom wall?
I move closer.
I must see what it is.
The head moves.
Its hood falls back.
A doll’s face appears.
A yellow glow
in the darkness.
Red eyes turn to me.
Burning a hole
through my heart.
Linda was hanging over the pool filled with alligators. Todd was faced with Maxell, a new creature intent on killing him and his friends. Todd wasn’t going to allow Maxell to kill his beloved, Linda.
Maxell spun around and gawked at Wolf. “How could you possibly be alive? You died in the alligator pool.”
“Who told you that, your grandmother? Do you believe your grandmother or your own father?”
“Are you trying to tell me that you’re my father? My father died when I was born,” Maxell said.
“No, I didn’t. I left your mother. She made up the whole story to hide the truth.”
Wolf hesitated for a brief moment and then said, “Your mother has always been extremely organized and kept very strict schedules. She was dreadfully difficult to live with.”
“Yes! She was too strict! She never let me be me! I wanted to be free from her.”
“Be free now! Come with me! We could go away together and start a new life,” Wolf said, walking closer to her.
Maxell began to walk toward Wolf. Then Wolf disappeared, leaving Maxell standing alone in the middle of the alligator pool. She fell to her death, looking up at Todd, who smiled down at her.
Reece opened the glass dome right before she hit the water. She sizzled and burned from the dazzling sunlight—all the while knowing that she’d been tricked by an apparition created by a weak and spineless human vampire.
“Stupid, stupid vampire,” Mike said, shaking his head.
I want to tell you a story.
A story about a small town
in Florida called, Oasis.
It’s a seaside town with
friendly residents, who
have stores in town.
And then there are the
residents, who live in the forest
at the edge of the beach.
They only come out at night.
Parties are held at their
remote estates, only after dark.
Who are these people?
Are they people?
Come and play THE DEAD GAME
and find out.
THE DEAD GAME by Susanne Leist
Daisies can appear happy,
lifting their faces to the bright sun.
A circle of color around
their dark faces.
Blowing in the breeze, while
sharing their soft fragrance.
But what if a field of daisies was to turn deadly?
Stampeding their poor victim to death.
Could this possibly happen?
It can if you happen to live in Oasis, Florida.
The Dead can hide in mysterious places.
THE DEAD GAME
Visit your nightmares.
Walk through the gates of hell.
A castle is waiting in the distance.
Waiting for you to enter.
What can be inside?
Is it as bad as our worst nightmare?
It might be even worse.
You won’t know until you enter End House.
THE DEAD GAME
I’m every nightmare you ever had, I am your worst dream come true. I’m everything you ever were afraid of!
Who doesn’t love a clown?
It represents the outside face
we show the world.
Inside is who we really are.
Clowns could be fun but
they could also be your
deepest and darkest nightmare.
SEND IN THE CLOWNS!
