*About a year ago*
“See I told you the camping trip would be great to relieve your stress.” said Bob as him and a nearby woman continued walking through the woods.
“I guess, it is beautiful out here, and the air is so fresh compared to the city but let’s hurry up a bit and get back to our campsite before it gets too dark. We should be able to see it soon now.”
The couple continued walking, but they could not believe their eyes when they saw their campsite, it was in ruins. The camps were torn apart, the tires to their car was slashed, and everything that was in their tents were lying on the ground everywhere.
“What the hell happened here?!?” Yelled Bob. “Who would do this, and where?!” As Bob turned around he came face to face to a pale man in a cloak.
“Why hello there, mind to join me and my friends for a fun night out?” Asked the pale man as he grabbed out a hook, pierced Bob’s shoulder and started dragging him.
Later that week when the police started their search for the missing couple, they could find no trace of them except for their blood on a altar in the middle of the forest.
“ I think I found something here, in this forest area in Oregon, each year in the week approaching the spring equinox, a group of campers, hikers, tourist, you name it, go missing.”
“Are there any bodies, any evidence of what happened to them?”
“No, nothing is found, there is sometimes a car, but all the personal belongings are gone. But check this out, last year, the police found a bloody altar in the forest. They closed the forest off for the summer, looking for more clues, but to no avail. They found no suspects or clues, so they let the forest be open again. But they did find an old abandoned mansion, it had everything and belonged to a rich millionaire a long time ago. ”
“Let me guess, he died a violent death?”
“There is no records of what happened to him, but my guess is that the place might be the center of the killings.”
“Wait, the spring equinox is next week is it not?”
“Yes and there is already a big group of campers, filled with tourists and locals, going into the forest in a few days. I’m going ahead to check it out, here’s a ticket for you to get into the group. You go in as a normal camper and we will try and meet up there.”
“Okay, I will get everything ready then.”
*Few days later*
“Welcome fellow campers, we are about to enter the forest, make sure you have everything you need!” Yelled what seemed to be the group leader. Yelling through his megaphone he was looking over the people, making sure no one gets separated.
The first few days everything was normal, they got deeper and deeper into the woods without nothing weird happening. The first night when they set up their permanent camp site on the other hand was not so normal.
Someone wandered into the group leader’s tent to ask something, but came out screaming their lungs out. As more people approached the tent to see what’s wrong, a head rolled out of the tent. It seemed to be the group leader’s head, especially since his mega phone was crammed all the way in the mouth of the head.
Inside was the headless body, along with a note.
“This was just a warning, if you guys decide to co-operate with us, we promise we will let some of you survive.”
Everyone assembled outside to see what they were going to do but they could not seem to agree on anything. They eventually decided that they should keep moving and try to get out of the forest. That was when the attacks started happening.
People were randomly disappearing, or there were dead bodies found when everyone woke up in the morning. Some people decided that they should take action.
“It is obvious whoever is doing this is in the group, we do not see anyone else out there, I say we start killing off the people here.” The man grabbed a rock and was about to attack the man next to him before a hand grabbed him.
“Look this is not the way to do this, whoever is killing us wants this to happen. I say if you guys really want to start checking the group members, we should at least do so in some sort of manner, instead of all of us attacking who we fins suspicious. Each night lets all bring forward our suspicions and see what happens from there, k?”
Everyone nodded along. They continued walking that day till they appeared a clearing in the forest. They all thought they finally made it out of the forest but instead they were greeted by this:
“Ummmmmm what now?”
