Happy Wednesday Novas! I have finally received the last picture in my 4 picture challenge that I started with a friend a few months ago. It’s time to find out what happens to Kyrie and why all of the creepy things were happening at Bancroft Manor! Want to catch up? Check out Creative Writing Pt.1, Creative Writing Pt.2 : The Curse and Creatiev Writing Pt. 3: The Discovery now! Below is the picture for the remainder of the story.
Kyrie had uncovered the newspaper that was dated December 15th, 1915 sitting neatly on the dresser. The front page picture was of a women being murdered! She was found on a piano in Bancrof Manor and the killer was never caught. Police had questioned witnesses that seem to think the suspect vanished and disappeard out of thin air. There was a police sketch of the last person seen with the woman and the face was that of Kyrie! Kyrie tries to catch his breath and grabs the papper to read more about the story. Witnesses say that the women
Witnesses say that the women was Sara Granville and a well known apothecry for the town. When you couldn’t find a cure at the doctor’s office, you would call Sara for her herbal remedies. The children all thought that she was a witch and the suspect named Kyrie Dayton was a new teenager in town. acquaintances of Dayton say that they dared him to go to Bancroft Manor and talk with the witch. That was the last time they saw him.
Kyrie overhears footsteps while he is reading the story. “What is wrong with you, no one’s here.” hey says and continues reading. Next he hears the creak of the door opening. When Kyrie looks towards the door it shuts rapidly causing more dust to fly up in the air. Kyrie sneezes. “Ouch” he says as he rubs his head, it’s still hurting from when he collapsed earlier. The air chills and the light on the candle blows out. Kyrie can hear foosteps approaching again until the knock on the door turns him pale. The door blasts open and Kyrie sees the face of the old woman that he gave a sandwich to, the same face of teh woman who was dead on the piano and in this old Newspaper clipping. Yet, she was no longer human, she was a demon.
“Beware of strangers.” the snarling demon laughs. “You are the last time shifter left and you can’t escapeme this time.” she continues. All of Kyrie’s memories are returned. Yes, he did kill the old woman in 1915, he knew that she was praticing withcraft and planning to call demons up to the Earth. Kyrie found out because she poisoned him when he asked her for an herbal remedy to help his fever. Kyrie didn’t die, but he started exhibiting strange behaviors. He killed her and somehow ended up a century away.
“Are you going to kill me?” Kyrie asks. He feels himself losing control of his own thoughts.
The demon laughs. “Kill you? My dear, you’re already dead!” she responds.
Kyrie’s body is now immobile. He cannot move to get away from this hideous woman. Kyrie realizes why he is never afraid, why he welcomes death. He did die from the poison given to him all of those years ago. He died and came back with supernatural abilities. He realizes that he is now trapped with the demon and under her control.
She walks over to Kyrie and places a mark on the palm of his hand. Now you can never run away again. The little girl that warned him that he could never leave enters the room behind her and sits on the bed.
“What do you have to do with this, child?” he questions.
She giggles and points to the outside of the window.
“Kyrie, we have work to do!” she answers. The laughter intensifies.
There’s that eerie feeling again. Kyrie turns to look out of the window and what he sees scares him. Hundreds of demons falling from the sky and the light of the flames. shining off of the city. Kyrie tries to fight, he tries to scream but he cannot resist. He snarls with his eyes turning crimson red. He fights for the last of his humanity, but he no longer has it. Kyrie leaps out of the window, yelling “It’s time to Play!”
What did you think of the ending? Are you working on any creative wrting projects at the moment? Is this the outcome that you would expect? Let’s talk writing!
