CHAPTER 3: The Piercing


July 7th 1:03pm, Strawberry County Carnival, Richfork IA


JESSICA, SHA-NENE, HERBIE, & SCARLET were feeling the heat while stuck on the ride. JESSICA & SHA-NENE were complaining that they were left behind while SCARLET began complaining of dizziness.


JEREMIAH revved the motorcycle engine full throttle, completely unaware of the power of the bike and how much he really drank. The world spun around him in an intoxicate haze. JEREMIAH shouted with excitement he rode off the grass parking lot and onto the road.

GHOST & ZOMBIE jumped on their bikes. JACK & JAMES, out of breath, watched GHOST & ZOMBIE gave chase on their motorcycles. When JACK & JAMES stopped running, they realize they were now alone with a pissed off motorcycle-less biker, who was standing behind them: JOKER.


With the Beer Tent now empty, JAXSON tapped CROWMAN on the shoulder, pulled out two fat joints from his shirt pocket, and CROWMAN nodded in agreement. For them, it was break time.


NORMAN & RICK watched MORTEY stare at the splattered woman’s head, motionless, in complete disbelief, still kneeling over JIM’s motionless corpse. LARRY & PAT had circled around to where RICK was and the four watched MORTEY stop and look in their direction.

NORMAN whispered to RICK, “You’re on your own, kid,” and run in the direction from where the mob came from. MORTEY didn’t give chase but did slowly walk toward LARRY, PAT, & RICK. RICK whispered to PAT & LARRY, “…run…!” LARRY grabbed PAT to take off as RICK reached down toward the dead cop’s gun and unclipped the 45 Glock. All three were still next-to-statue as the deranged smiling MORTEY walked closer not fifteen yards away.

As RICK pulled the gun from the holster, RICK bellowed, “RUN!” and raised the gun at MORTEY the exact same time LARRY shoved PAT over the cop’s body, directly at MORTEY and began running away in the same direction as NORMAN: toward the gaming area. RICK aimed at MORTEY and pulled the trigger three times, unaware of the recoil, but pulled the aim away as to not hit PAT, who was close to MORTEY now.


Slowing his running due to quick exhaustion, Officer CODY realized he was getting no radio response. When the sound of the motorcycles drew out, CODY could hear an up roar behind him. CODY looked toward the Beer Tent and realized it was empty, then turned toward Officer JIM would be: the gaming area, where JIM was called to, but the crowd roar was increasing.

CODY turned his head toward the sound of the crowd and then heard three gun shots. After a flash of white light, CODY never saw anything ever again as a stray bullet pierced his right eye and then lodged deep inside his brain.


LEON, bruised but functional, silently crawled toward OLIVIA, who was unconscious. LEON played dead with one eye open as MORTEY crushed a woman’s skull with a mallet. MORTEY’s attention gaze changed toward four people huddled over a fallen cop. OLIVIA began to stir and before LEON could keep her quiet, OLIVIA screamed at the sight of the dead woman. LEON covered her mouth with his hand.


The Carnival was depleting of people and almost all sound rapidly, and this suited PRESTON just fine. But when three gun shots went off, this triggered some explosive anger in PRESTON. PRESTON threw down his broom and began walking in the direction of the shots.


The sight and smell in the trailer overpoweringly horrific and just as MOE was about to leave the boss's trailer for the Paramedic Medical Tent for help, a document on the boss's desk caught his attention. Where it wasn’t splattered with blood read: TERMINIATION REQUEST FORM: MORTEY. MOE ran from the trailer, knowing somewhere there were police around walking the grounds and that was when MOE heard three gun shots, sounding like muffled firecrackers from inside the trailer.
