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 Six - Attack of The Gorgon!
The fog was still thick when the next search crew departed. The leader of this nights expedition spotted a figure in the distance but it didn't appear to move. As they approached, they saw three additional figures. When they reached them, they realized they were not human but made of stone! Why would these statues be here in the woods?
There was something strangely familiar about them. One of the men recognized one of the statues as his brother! These were not statues, they were actually some of the men who had disappeared the previous night!
Suddenly from the edge of the densest part of the woods she appeared, the Medusa-like creature with snakes for hair, known as a Gorgon. One look into her eyes means certain death. Almost all of the men were unable to look away in time. Even the few that were able to escape the Gorgon's stare were never seen again.
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.
