Billy shook his head as he and Lisa drank their coffees. "How much for the drinks?", Lisa asked Martha. "Seven dollars". She took out a ten dollar bill. "Keep the tip". Martha nodded. She started to think that young camp counsellors were going to get into deep trouble. Billy shook his head. He had heard the stories about Pamela and Jason Voorhees; he had pondered about Steve Christy. The camp counsellor had, in the late nineteen seventies, with his girlfriend Alice Hardy, wanted to dispel the tainted myth that Camp Crystal Lake was just a camp for children and teenagers. He knew that Christy's parents had built the camp back in nineteen thirty-three; that two years' later, it had opened up for business. The only mistake was letting Pamela Voorhees on as the camp cook. She, and her eleven year old son, Jason, were at the camp since Elias Voorhees, Pamela's husband, had left town with his parents in nineteen forty-five. When Jason Voorhees was born on Friday, June 13, 1946, Jason's mother wasn't as mad as she would end up. Jason, who couldn't swim, was disabled. As he grew up, all of the campers ignored him. From 1947 to 1956, (about a decade later), nothing out of the ordinary happened at Camp Crystal Lake. Lisa finished her coffees with Billy. They left the Diner. Then they headed to the van, closed the door, put their seat belt on, and Billy drove towards the camp.

Tom Frank stared out of the window of the yellow 2010 van. He was concerned that the other campers were going there for the adventure; he was concerned about the impending tragedy that had befallen them over a long period of time. "Maybe we can have fun", Debra Lowers said. She glanced at the hot sun. Brad Martin Smyth, the joker, grinned. "I have a lot of masks to wear", he said. And, as the three teenagers saw the ​Welcome to Camp Crystal Lake, Est. 1935​ sign, Tom drove past the Native American totem poles. He reached the edges of the cabins, and stopped driving.

Lisa got out of the van. She felt cold. In her mind, Camp Crystal Lake was freezing. She saw a sign that had the words: Office​ on the glass window. She stared at the small table inside. She saw a key dangling. She opened it; she heard the creaking of the door, as Billy flicked on the light. Once they went in, Lisa shook her head. "The other campers left in a hurry", she said. She felt fear in her blood. Billy nodded. "Maybe the campers were scared of Jason Voorhees", he said. Lisa saw the new campers. "Looks like everyone's here". And she walked out of the old office with Billy...and they waved their hands to let them know where they were.

Brad smiled. "Are you happy, Debra?", he asked her. She watched Tom seeing the new camp counsellors. After he finished driving, Lisa and Billy met them. "Hi, I'm Billy. This is Lisa. Let's go to the cabins. Once everyone's settled down, we can go exploring".

D. J. Harris smoked a cigarette. He was forty. His Grandfather, Chas Harris, had told him about Crazy Ralph. "Ralph, an eccentric doomsayer, warned Jack, Marcie, Alice, and Ned not to go to Camp Crystal Lake in nineteen seventy-nine; Ralph, who was in his late sixties, was born in 1913. It was a year before World War I happened. He was educated at Crystal Lake High School. In the summer of 1914 to 1918, the war ended. From 1919 to 1955 the camp was popular with teenagers; from 1956 to 1957, it was the last summer in which the campers felt free to go swimming in the lake; play pranks; and enjoy the summer. Ralph knew better. He had met Pamela Sue Voorhees; he had warned her not to do anything stupid. When she took care of Jason, she got paid as the camp's cook. Then, in the summer of 1957, on Friday, June 13, of that year, Jason Voorhees drowned in the lake as Barry and Claudette made out in the barn. Pamela, who was twenty-seven, decided to get her own revenge. In the end, the rumour was that Pamela dragged her son out of the freezing lake before ​he drowned and took him to an old shack in the deep woods. In 1959, Camp Crystal Lake was set on fire; in 1960, the water was poisoned. After the attacks, Camp Crystal Lake was closed for the next two decades or so. Between 1961 to 1963, (during the President John F. Kennedy years), the Christy family wanted to re-open the camp; between 1964 to 1973, nothing happened. Then in the summer of 1974, Steve Christy was dating Alice Hardy, a young California artist. Hardy was hired as the Assistant Camp Counsellor. 'I'll have $25,000 in a couple of years to re-open the camp...and there's no death curse', he was famously said. By 1975 to 1976, nothing happened. Finally in 1977, Steve Christy, (now 27), and Alice Hardy, (now 19), were preparing for the re-opening. In 1978, Steve got the money. In the summer of 1979, they headed to Camp Crystal Lake thinking that the campers would have the time of their lives. Sadly, the truth was that the death curse was real". D. J. Harris nodded. Then he shivered, as he stared at the campgrounds...and wished that the nightmare was over.

Billy, Lisa, Tom, Debra, and Brad, stared at the campfire. The burning heat was hot. "I hope we don't want to see Jason Voorhees", Billy said. He shook his head. By night time, Camp Crystal Lake was cold. Suddenly, as they ate their dinner, Billy heard a noise. "What's that?", he asked his friends. Suddenly he saw Jason Voorhees. He was holding a hammer in his right hand...and brought it downward. "Let's get out of here", he yelled. And, as the campers and counsellors, left the camp, Jason put down the weapon. Then he ran towards them. But it proved too late...they had already gone.
