NO LAUGHING MATTER!
♛ Kumogakure Halloween Contest EventAAAAAIIIIEEEEE!... ... ...*pant* *pant*
It was a bloodcurdling scream. The voice of a young girl, forced and scared, she was screaming for her life. Where this scream is located would be hard to tell; as, the sun slowly escaped behind the towering mountains of Kaminari no Kuni it left an otherworldly hue in this forest. The yellows, greens, and oranges that once reigned as the sun sat high were now replaced with colors of purple, blue, and black. Trees that would seem dressed in shadows towered over the girl as she ran bewildered and frightened, the branches acting like arms, swaying in the wind, as if trying to catch her unwanted presence. The air is chilly, a cool breath blown from the underworld it would it ripple the core of the strongest of men. As night fell, the absence of animals and their cry would be noted, the only sound resonating between the trees is the crunch of leaves beneath the girls bare feet.
Shizenrin, the "Virgin Forest", is well known within the realm of the Lightning Country as a place not for the faint-hearted. Villagers of the nearby towns are quick to speak of those who enter the forest at night and never come back. As the civilians sleep soundly in their beds at night they hear noises; of moans and screams, a ghostly blanket of terror befalls that forest when the night brushes its cool hand across. There are few that live to tell of their experiences in the forest, and those that do, become catatonic merely by the spoken words of its name. Figures are seen by those that dare open their eyes, unhurried and mutilated, it is said that it is not the work of a single monster - but many. Just what could lurk beyond the trees?
The girl could be seen running blindly through the forest. Her face muddied, clothes torn and ripped, legs bearing deep scratches and cuts. Her eyes darted across her face persistently as instinct now ruled to protect her. Clambering and clumsy, she would scout for danger - as if she could see between the darkness of trees. Gasping for breath her eyes would catch the light of the moon for only a second as she turned to its direction, a savours glow, it would lead her to a opening - a patch of wild grass and flowers. Her scrambled run would come to a halt as she stood solemnly in the middle of the opening, the night taunting her as its stripped her of her strongest senses. Twisting her body in terror her vague gaze would spot dozens of shadowy, menacing, figures lurking at the edges of the clearing she resided in. Tired, cold, and hurt all she wanted to do was scream - but even that was too terrifying. Images of their faces flashed in her head as she stood helplessly, their colored hair and bloodied face paint..were these monsters once human? Her heart started to beat faster...ba boom...ba boom boom...as their eerie chuckling and demonic laughter consumed the surrounding area.
How did she get in this situation and who were these monsters that hankered for her demise? He waited for anyone, anything, to come and rescue her. But who else would dare enter Shizenrin in the dark of night?
