Animals Disappearing Over- Night Short Halloween Story
 

Of all things Halloween would be here in a few days, and I had to go out into the dark, to the pasture each night when I got off work.

I had rented the land to a couple with horses and the man had called asking me to care for them.  Normally I wouldn't had minded, but this time last year, some really gross things happened.

It started out with a warning on the television for all pet owners to bring their animals inside for a while until the police could figure out what was happening!

At first I wasn't sure what they were talking about.  After-all with me just coming in from work and trying to get the things done that needed done, I had missed most of the news that night.

But I remember it like yesterday, all the horrifying things that happened during Halloween Eve.  

According to the authorities many animals were butchered that week.  It seemed the culprits dismembered their carcasses and used the heads and blood as a worshiping at their altar.

The newscasters showed some on television, warning all parents that it was graphic.  I wished over and over that I hadn't glimpsed that way at the wrong moment.

What was that, I thought to myself?  I had heard a noise outside. So I quickly look out my window but saw nothing.  But what if, I thought?

Tonight was a cool and humid, a dense fog had sat in along the surface of the ground making it hard to define anything.

I found myself tonight envisioning the news cast from last year, still seeing the vivid and horrid sight  of the animals heads all lined across with sticks and poles supporting them.  

What surprised me most was it was heads of different kinds of animals, like rabbits, dogs and including a horse. 

There scattered about in a pattern of a circle and star it seemed was candles. Being so on edge,  I could of sworn I saw jars of blood spilled upon the ground.

It was getting late and here I was scaring myself silly.  I have to walk out so far into the dark to reach the pasture. Shaking off the shiver of fright that begin to build.

Thinking to myself, that the one dog on a stick was the neighbors little girls dog whom lived 5 houses down the way from me. So sad it was for that family for such a horrible thing as this to happen.

I gathered my flashlight and a bucket of water heading out to the pasture.
It was like half an acre away.

The flashlight seemed very dim for some reason tonight. Time to check the batteries when I get back.

While walking out to the pasture, my eyes started playing tricks on me. I could of sworn I saw a blinking light near the pasture. I was beginning to have second doubts about going, yet I always keep my promises.

When I reached the pasture only one of the horses came close, I strained my eyes and thought I could make out the other two in the distance, but with this fog one couldn't be for sure. 

I quickly poured the feed into the container and the the water in its. About then, I start to turn back toward the house and suddenly felt something hairy brush up against my legs. 

My heart about jumped out of my chest. It was beating so fast I could hardly move. My body trembled like one on a frigid day.

I started back spanning all around me with the flashlight. There in the distance look like eyes of wolves.  There were lots of yellow eyes almost glowing while looking my way.

Being so frantic, I suddenly tripped over something.  Falling hard to the ground, to discover I was fine after I brushed my body off. But my  flashlight was no where to be found.  It would be way too dangerous to travel back home without it.

I felt all around on the ground where I thought it was and suddenly felt something wet. It made my hand smelled awful, like blood from raw meat. Suddenly I became ill and my stomach was lurching.

As I calmed down and stopped throwing up, I could of sworn I heard chanting voices nearby.  By now my mind was running rapid with lots of horrific ideas and thoughts.

Thinking to myself, had I stumbled upon a site of those  culprits who slaughtered the animals last year?  Being still unable to find my flashlight, I had to practically crawl back to the house.

In the air was a horrible scent, almost like someone was cooking out,but surely not this late at night.  Yet is smelled odd, like bad meat smelled when it was rancid.

Thinking to myself,I prayed, Lord just let me get home safely and I'll help the needy or do whatever you want me too.

Just then I came upon the house; I reached out for the door knob.  I let out bloody scream as if a murder had took place!

I looked to see what was on my hand. It was a large black spider! It had fallen from no where onto my hand.   Shaking my hand to knock it off, I continued to scream.

I couldn't take anymore frights tonight, I must get some rest. Still trembling I proceed inside. 

Once inside I locked my door quickly.  Usually I don't need too with me living in the country.

I went and took my shower and hurried to bed.  Snuggling up with a good romance book to take my mind off of all that happened tonight.

Being so exhausted it wasn't long before I had fallen into a deep sleep!   I dreamed of this and that, but all become a murky foggy scene in mind.

I found myself standing off to the side watching the culprits, as they slowly laid animals upon a large rock. They were all clothed in black, wearing hoods that hid their faces.

A bell clang softly and all started to chant. The next thing I saw was the animal up close that was meant for their offering. It was a black and white dog I think.

It must of already been dead, it didn't make a sound.  It seemed limped from what I could make out.

They all started to chant once again and what I think it was the head man took and laid the animal on the rock and then proceeded to bite at its neck like a wild animal himself.

Everything was so dark and all was so confusing.  I couldn't believe what my eyes saw next!

Holding a goblet of some sort to the animals neck filling it with blood. When it was full another filled his and so on.

Next another was chosen to decapitate the animal and prepare it for later. How much more could I watch, I was thinking to myself, but for some unGodly reason I was unable to move my body.

I think the fright had made me stiff all over, and by now pain was starting in from the stiffness.  It seemed it all went on for hours.  I became immune to the sights and smell surrounding me.

The altar was decorated with animals heads on sticks and the candles outlined a shape similar to that I saw on television a year ago.

All of a sudden, behind me I felt hot breath that was breathing down my bare cold neck!  Someone has found me spying. Oh no! My scream was frozen in my throat!

They took my arms and pushed me forward. All had started chanting again with such power and wildness this time. 

What was they going to do to me? I knew the ritual they performed on the animals and could tell on them.

My next frightening thought was I was afraid I'd be the next sacrifice.  I would soon die. But I was too young, had too many things to do.

They took me to the rock, laid me down upon it just as they did the animals.  The worst part of all I couldn't move, it was if they had a spell on me.

I could suddenly smell the blood and flesh from the animal carcasses. Feeling ill inside, my head was spinning, then all of a sudden the sky  went totally black, making me feel as if I was spinning into oblivion.

My whole body begin spinning and spinning round and round..............

I awoke in my bed with my body and hair drenched in sweat. I was so wet and found myself twisted in my bed sheet.  

It was the most horrible dream of my life. Waking slowly I was trembling.
Still I felt I had forgotten something!

The morning news broadcast once again, "animals went missing and upon daylight another altar was discovered with hundreds of dead carcasses."

A shiver ran down my spine, had I really been there and escaped, or was it all just a bad, bad dream?  

Guess neither of us will know for now.  As I was heading to kitchen for some coffee to wake up with, I was never aware I was leaving behind me a trail of bloody footprints..............!
