Hi, my name is Cliff, and I have quite a story to tell,
it all started when I moved in this town,
I did nt know about the history of the place,
until this incredible day...
Death-o-Minos day [Halloween] was coming, and I needed stuff for the house.
That s when I first saw her...
For some reason, I was just fascinated by her...
When she looked back, I faked interest in the news,
a pale ghotic style girlfriend was not my usual type... yet....
When I looked back... she was gone!
Then, the weirdest thing happened, I felt like a panic attack...
I could nt breathe!
I felt in love before, but, this was insane!
I had to run to look for her, and catch a little air!
At the pinacle of my despair...
I see her in front of that sinister cemetery...
I don t know what happened, I m sure she never opened that gate!
When I arrived, she was deep inside, and the gate was locked!
I felt a lot better, but, also sad, I then knew that she
'squatted' an abandoned building,
but, I could nt go there, who had that key anyways, the undertaker?
This was just not possible!!!
all I can think of, is that girl, and find her in that awful place!
..........................THE NEXT DAY......................................
I did nt sleep well that night, I had to know more about that place,
or I d go nuts!
I had been looking for a reason to talk to Andrea for a while now,
maybe I just need to see women, I have been single for a while...
While I talk to Andrea, I totally feel like I m talking to my sister...
but, what she tells me is pure horror...
1 rst of all, the old building was an old military hq,
which was donated to an old lady, which in turn, transformed it into an orphanage.
As sad as an orphanage can be, its 'sugarcoat' on what happened next...
For, some day, thinking that the old lady was rich,
a gang raided the orphanage.
and all perished in a mysterious fire in the basement where is the furnace!
I felt awful about this, and left Andrea right away...
Just to run as fast as I could to get there, again,
I then started to make up reasons to get in...
maybe that girl did nt know the story,
maybe she s cold, and would be better at my house,
and I ll spare you for a thousand more...
I felt stunned, like a brute or something,
I could nt think...
I would have eaten these bars if I had to...
Those visions were so real, I felt like I was there,
all the horrors the children when through,
and... it was her...
she s the one who set the fire!
to stop the beatings of the gang, and she perished herself in it!
but... she was older when I first saw her...
I never could go back there eversince!
I saw your Halloween teaser, but somehow I missed it when you posted the story. It's really a scary story, and I shudder at the thought of the burned children, but the scene setup is as always masterfully executed. The illuminated cemetery is the icing on the cake. I wonder why Cliff carries a drainpipe plunger (or what you call it)?
Quoting Lee Jones
actually, I would nt be surprised I m older, lol, I m the same age as Mark Kelso... as for skills, we both have different strengths, you re just unbeatable in armies, lol, thanks Lee!
That cemetary is your masterpiece if you ask me. Again with so much details. As I listen to metal music, this is what I look for in MOCs hehe. And you really took the feel of it. Also, the ''red'' picture reminded me of the movie Blade. Give us more of this spooky creations, please. :)
Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head
thank you very much Kermunklin, #1; yes, it reminds the viewers that it s on Alta-5, there is always action and intrigue, d, #2 sometimes, you get 'infatuation over a woman, it can be mild, or strong, in Cliff s case, it s magic, he can t think or concentrate, he uses a wrench on his cat by distraction, and throws valuables on the street with his sheets still wrapped around his waist, d.
Awesome Halloween story. Total classic. As usual everything's a class act, but you really outdid yourself with the cemetery and the lighting. Two questions though: in panel 12, was that really a ninja being helped into the ambulance, or just some guy dressed as a ninja? Other question: in panel 13, it looked like the protagonist was adjusting his cat with a wrench. Does he have a mechanical cat? And if not, why would he be waving a wrench around so close to that cat? So three questions, I guess...great build.
Hehe, spooky! A belated happy halloween :-) Well done story and as always excellent backgrounds. I like the basement furnace, that gas can the girl is holding, your use of comedy and that lighting. The cemetary looks great! Oh, liking that vintage bike and the Mr. Kidd appearance too :-D
I never considered lighting through solid colour, it looks better than expected... As for the story, it was pretty good and the revelation was clever. I do think though, that for a horror story, you gave too much information about the creepy elements and did not leave enough unanswered questions behind for the readers.
Quoting Nick White
he, he, a friend added me in a group of singles, but, it turned to be a triangle... xd, the cat and garbage scene was to demonstrate the degree of which he was affected, he tries to fix the cat with a tool, has his sheets stuck in his pyjama, and dumps valuables in the trash, he s gone mentally, thanks Nick!
I love being treated to the views of the mansion and cemetary grounds! When I taught hs I found that the Goth kids in our area where really quite sensitive souls, so I am not surprised he fell for her! Now just what type of business is that Andrea in anyway?! Okay, you don't have to answer that! Now, moving on... love all your play with lighting. I'll sum it all up with one word... Fascinating! ;)
Where do you find these girls frank? There creepy! Awesome episode! The backround story of the place was creepy that they all burned! And in the biginning, what was he doing to the cat?! I love the lights under the grave stones! Good job!
Awesome Frank! I love those lights under the tombstones, positively genius! That was funny at the beginning of the story when Cliff was walking down the street with a plunger. The flashback scene in the basement was intense with the fire. Fantastic story Frank! Can't wait for next year
Wow, that's again a great story my friend! I really love your passion for detail. The lights under the baseplate are a really cool touch. Thank you for this "spooky" Halloween story. The time i needed for reading the story and watching all the nice details on the pics was worth it :) Happy Halloween my friend!
