2. The Cottage-Part Two

****

Baxter and Jon ​watched the windows. "Nice glass", they said. Casey agreed. They didn't bother with the news about the Scythe man; they didn't believe in scary killers. Unless someone was going to attack them one by one. Casey smiled at them. "Is there anything wrong?", he asked the teenagers. "No; no. There's just the news that there is someone who terrorizes the cottage. We don't know his name". And then they waited for the killer to come.

Jill walked to the Dining Room. She noticed the warm fireplace. She didn't see any logs inside; she opened the back room, then she chopped some firewood with an axe. When she placed it in the snow, she took three of them into the cottage, and placed it in the grille. "Great job, Jill", Casey said. "Thanks", she said. And she grinned while the others explored the rest of the cottage.

The Scythe man grabbed the axe. He looked around the cottage. He didn't wear a mask. That was old school; that was what scared teenagers back in the nineteen seventies, nineteen eighties, and nineteen nineties. He wasn't burned, as well. He had long, black hair, hazel eyes, and tall; he wore a black shirt, blue trousers, a black belt, red socks, and black shoes on his feet. He also was wearing a black watch on his left hand. He saw the teenagers inside. He decided to go through the back way. As he did so, he sensed he had a lot of power. And he smiled, as the snow was beginning to be heavier.

Jill shook her head. She was scared. Suddenly she heard the sound of breathing...heavy breathing. She gazed at the front door. "Hello? Is there anyone there? Hello". There was no answer. She looked at Jon. "What's going on?", he asked her. "It must've been my imagination", Jill answered him. "Maybe", he said. And she sighed, and both of them walked to the front door.

Jon reached the kitchen. He opened the fridge. There were several wines, and bottled water. He grabbed some water. And he closed the door.  Seconds later, he saw the Scythe man. He screamed as the killer raised the scythe in the air, and brought it downward.

"Jon! Jon! Where're you?", Jill asked. When she entered the kitchen she screamed. Jon's body was lying on the soft ground, as blood spilled from his deep wounds. "Call the police", Casey answered. Then she nodded, and called 9-1-1.

"What's going on? Is there a serial killer on the loose?", Nate asked them.

"Someone's here, and he's evil", Casey answered him. 

"Jesus! I thought that the cottage was safe", Jill said. She shuddered. And then she stared at Casey. 

"We'll go when the police arrive", Casey said. And, five minutes' later, the sound of wailing sirens arrived at the cottage, and all hell broke loose.
