2. Staples Road-August 4, 1973


Lynda ​Davies giggled as Ken Lowe, Jr. kissed her. 

"It's raining", she said. Ken had driven his 1973 Chrysler VJ Valiant towards Staples Road. "We're near the old farmhouse where the scarecrow is in the scary fields", Ken said. Lynda shivered. "Don't scare me", she said. Ken laughed. "It's true! Victor told me". He watched Lynda. "Can we go home?", she asked him. "Fine, babe". He smoked a cigarette. The fiery embers dripped out of his mouth; the embers flickered down towards his black flares; his eighteen year old face was young. Lynda, who was also eighteen, gripped her rain jacket with her left hand. Her face was etched in grave concern. And, suddenly, as she kissed her boyfriend for the last time, they saw the scarecrow lift the sharp scythe in its right hand. The couple screamed, as the scarecrow lifted the farming tool high in the air...and brought it downward across the right-side window. Glass sprayed everywhere. Lynda screamed, as Ken was injured. "Help me! Help me! Help me!​", she yelled. And she fled the car in terror...and was drenched before she reached the Sheriff's Office in town.
