"Scare It Forward!" Chapters 12 & 13

 

This week's update for William Castle's 2011 "Scare it Forward!" features the concluding two chapters for the first story.

The story so far:
Summer- a time for sunshine, bathing suits, swimming in the river... and death.  Grant and four of his friends are enjoying the summer sun by spending the night along the banks of a river.  After Grant sees what he thinks is a dead body, evil begins to stalk the teens one by one... 
Years ago, a simple Mexican peasant girl caught the eye of the Don's son.  He wanted her, and have he would.  But all was not what she expected.  Soon the rumors brought to her by the servants, and his growing attention towards their twin sons would pull the family apart... and her actions would haunt the landscape for years to come...

And one of those years is now.  Aaron- one of the teens camping by the side of the river is found the next morning... barely concious, and terrified.  Torn between taking their friend to the hospital, and staying to give him a chance to rest and recover, the teens try to deal with Aaron's pleas for them to leave before, "she" kills them all.  That night, the mysterious female apparition visits Aaron... with Death keeping her company...
Death most foul comes at the hands of a friend, ripping dreams and innocence away like a corpse's shroud as the teens are caught in the grip of a rage and an anger from the past.  Friend turns on friend as the past corrupts the present... changing the daydreams of the future into the nightmare of the past...
 There is no rest for the dead as Aaron falls under the spell of La Llorona- the ghost of a mexican peasant girl tortured and murdered for the death of her sons.  Memories float through her mind of how she survived her attempt at keeping them with her... and the days of pain and mutilation that followed at the hands of her husband.  Twisted through the years, La Llorona seeks to enlist Aaron and his friends to help her find her lost boys... even if it means their lives...
  La Llorona army of servants grows as the still night of death continues.  Another of the remaining teens becomes the target of the spirit's twisted and disturbed needs and sense of justice.  Love is betrayed, friendship usurped, and the soft whispers of hate float through the air... whispering in the ear of a sleeping form... kill... kill... or die...
Marlene and Grant are all that remain to be captured in the la Llorona's web of hate and vengence.  The world takes on a darkened hue as it twists and turns into a hellish warzone- with the two teens caught in the middle.  Their friends are against them and the world is ripping itself apart in a cannonade of brutality...  When will the nightmare end... or will it ever end?
With the world around them slipping into an insane reflection of the pain in la Llorona's soul , Marlene and Grant fight for their lives... and their souls.  Will la Llorona's need for their friends end the curse on the river- or will it only sow more evil and death?
Chapter Twelve  was written by Brian Lane, while the final chapter- Chapter Thirteen was written by Malcolm Orrall.

Now that the first story is done... fans can eagerly await the beginning of the next tale taking place this year.  Stay tuned for updates on it!
