The Haunting of Kitty Hollow
The killing began on a full moon, less than a fortnight before All Hallows Eve. Rumors of sightings of strange creatures on the edge of the woods spread through the community. Many gave them no credence. Why should they? Nothing like this had ever happened before.
The first victims had gone out for dinner at a local eatery in the shadow of the woodland of Kitty Hollow Park. As they left the restaurant, they heard the sound of howling coming from the trees to the north.
"I think somebody's dog must of got loose from the dog park. Let's see if we can find him", he said.
"Are you sure? The sun has already gone down", she asked.
Unconcerned, he led his family into the darkening timberland to call out to the dog. As they entered, the trees seemed to close in around them. It was as if the woods had suddenly come alive. They realized their error when they heard the deep guttural growls. Only the child managed to escape, though when asked about what happened, she could not give voice to words.
Over the next several nights, rescue parties were organized to search for survivors and kill the evil creatures that have taken over the park. They searched each night, following a seldom used path that led them deeper and deeper into the wildwood. Each night a party went out and each night few, if any, returned. Those that did survive told horrifying accounts of their ordeal. It was not just one creature in these woods. There seemed to be countless numbers of them.
Night Four - Here There Be Gremlins!
The most disturbing part of the occurrences of the last few nights was that of all of the people that were killed, no bodies had been found in the aftermath.
The search party on the fourth night started off at the last known location of the previous night's group. The area nearby had been known to be a place where gremlins could be found, mischievous creatures whose destructiveness towards electrical and mechanical systems have led to the ruin of many. When the light faded, they attempted to use their flashlights, but to their surprise, none of their lights worked. They tried to use their radios to call for help but their messages were garbled. It was obvious that the gremlins were involved.
The party was stranded in the darkness when they saw the large group of malevolent figures approaching them. When the struggle began, it was obvious that these creatures had the advantage in the dark. One man managed to get a radio message out at the very end: "We thought they were all gremlins but we were wrong! We're being attacked by.... AARRGGHH!!!"
As your search begins, know that this area is inhabited by creatures both meek and savage. There will be slithery beings with neither arm nor leg, creatures of flight that would feast on your blood, and even plants that would attack you unexpectedly if you are not wary. This journey is not for the small of stature nor faint of heart for dangers await within these woods.
Travel between each location in the series is best done by bike in the grass along the greenway outside the South and West sides of the park but can be done by foot as well.
