Story By : Mud
Directed By : Destiney Baxter
Peter sat in his car watching the beach, where all the local kids went to
surf. The way the waves crashed upon the sand was almost hypnotic lulling his
mind into a mesmerized state. He watched and waited for his next victim to show,
it had been awhile since he satisfied that urge the way they begged and squirmed
and screamed as he ran his fingers across their skin. The thoughts brought a
shiver through his skin while he tapped his fingers impatiently on the steering
wheel; he bit his fingernails in a nervous manner as he scanned the beach when
he noticed a girl sitting down while her friends were running into the water to
surf. Peter jumped out of his car, took off his shirt and grabbed his surf board
from the roof of his car. He ran down to the beach next to where the girl sat and
stuck his surf board into the sand.
Peter then starts taking off his sandals pretending as if he was going to
actually surf. "Did you forget your board or something" Peter said to the girl.
The girl looks up at Peter and responds as she blocks the sunlight with her
hand "Oh no I don’t surf man, I’m more of a homebody." Peter threw his sandals
on the ground next to his board as he asked "So you just come to watch your
boyfriend surf?”. She removes her hand to get a better look at Peter and with
the raise of her eyebrow she said "very clever pick up line, but no I just come
to hang with friends, but to answer your other question, no I don’t have a
boyfriend!" Peters smirk turned to a smile and he asked "Well can I sit and
admire the beauty with you then?" The girl slid over on her towel, patted where
Peter was going to sit and said yes. As he sits down he looks at her and
introduces himself. She shakes his hand and smiles “My name is Katie”.
As Peter was sitting down she asked "Don’t you want to go surf?" Peter
turned and smiled "Oh I don’t surf; I came here to meet you!" They both laughed
and she leans her head on Peters shoulder and said quietly "I’m starting to like
this one." They sat there and talked to each other for about an hour until her
friends came up from surfing. After everyone introduced themselves, peter and
the girl had decided to go get lunch together, instead of leaving with her
friends. So they said goodbye to each other and Peter and the girl picked up
their items and headed up to Peters car. He strapped his surfboard down on the
roof. Opened the door for the girl and threw his shirt on as he jumped into the
driver seat. Peter told the girl to pick a radio station as he strapped on his
seatbelt and they drove out of the beach.
They pulled into the burger joint and ordered a couple hamburger combos.
They talked to each other as they ate, just learning about one another, laughing
and having a good time. They finished up their lunches during the conversation
they decided to go see a movie together. They pulled out of the burger joint and
drove down the scenic route to the local theater and headed in to see the
movie. As they set there watching the movie, the girl slowly places her hand
onto Peters hand and they hold hands during the rest of the movie. The movie
ends and they get up to leave the theater, Peter asks "do I need to take you
home now?" and the girl walks outside and replies with a smirk "AWW, And we were
just starting to have fun!"
Peter laughs as he opens the door for the girl and says "You want to come
over to my place, I have a great fire pit in the backyard!" The girl scrunches
up her forehead and says with a stern voice "Yeah that sounds ok, but that
doesn’t mean we are going to have sex!" and she gets in the car. Peter looks at
the girl "I didn’t think of it like that at all, I am just really digging on ya
and I wanted to hang with you more, but I mean don’t get me wrong, if we dated
or something I would like that to happen in the future, hopefully?!!" She
giggles and shuts the door, Peter Claps his hands and smiles as he excitedly
runs to the driver side of the car and he jumps in and drives away.
As they are driving down the highway, the sun was setting and the girl
said "I have the perfect song for this" and she pulls out her iPod and hooks it
into the car radio. She puts it onto the song she was talking about and then she
turns and looks at Peter and says "You know this is the most fun I have had in
a long time" and then she pokes half of her body out of the window of the car
and starts to sway in the breeze. Peter drifts off into the song and blankly
staring at the girl’s freedom and fearlessness. Then he started to think about
how this was actually the most fun that he had in a long time. He started to
think about how he wasn’t even thinking about the craving he had been
As the kids got lost in their own thoughts, peter had kind of forgotten
about fully paying attention to the road. As their car came up to the curve so
did a semi-truck from the other direction. As the truck took the turn Peter
smashed into the trailer of the diesel. As the car impacted the trailer, the
force had thrown the girl from the window and into the air. While she was
falling from the air onto the ground, she stopped dead in the air as if someone
had caught her, then was laid on to the ground gently.
She looked towards the car and seen that it had smashed into the trailer
of the diesel. She tried to get up to head toward the car, but she couldn’t
move, almost as if she was paralyzed from the neck down. Katie started to cry,
she sees the truck driver jump out of the cab of his truck and in a panic
started to run towards the car. He gets to the window and Peter is lying back in
the driver seat and blood is pouring heavily from his mouth and nose. The girl
then sees the driver turn and start to head back to the cab and so she lets out
a cry for help, but each cry only seemed to make the driver run faster to the
cab. The driver than jumps into the cab of the truck and drives away, crushing
the hood of peters car as he drives over
The little smoke coming from Peter’s car had turned to fire after the
trucker drove over the car. The smoke became a thick, dense black smoke and
started rising very rapidly into the air. As the girl lay in the ditch across
the street crying, she started to stare into the thick black abyss rising before
her. The smoke started to look like wavy sheets of silk flowing into the starry
background. Then she started to notice that the smoke was actually silken and
it was forming a flowing cloak of black soot, a bull skull slowly started to
fill in the dark of the hood. The arms of the cloak started to take form and
through one of the sleeves came a human skeleton hand and through the other a
The creature had come completely into form through the dense smoke, the
creature stepped out of the smoke and off of the hood of the car. The creature
slowly walked over to the window where Peter was lying and reached down with his
boney finger and touched Peter on the head. Peter then awoke, he started to
cough up blood, peter started gasping for air and then Peter finally caught his
breath. As Peter’s vision came to he noticed the cloaked creature standing
before him. The creature grabbed Peter around the neck and pulls him through the
car window, Throwing Peter onto his belly on the ground. Peter starts to spit up
blood "What the hell is going on" He barely gets out before he starts coughing
up more blood.
The tall creature bends over and grabs Peters wet, bloody hair and pulls
his head back so peter can see his skull, "You have died Peter, You stood before
the Pearly Gates and you were rejected, so they sent me here to collect you!"
Peter pushed the creatures hand from his head and screamed "Collect me for what?
Why am I being punished" and he started to cry as he fell back to the ground.
The creature pulls Peters head again and says "Your punishment will be what you
were going to do to lovely girl you met today, punishment like the first girl
you killed just to feed your perverted emotions."
Then the creature raised his scythe into the air and stuck it down into
Peters shoulder. Peter let out a scream, and then the creature started walking
away dragging Peter behind him. "You know the greatest thing about hell Peter,
No matter how much pain, No matter how much suffering you endure you will never
die. My Demons will rape you daily, they will drain your blood dry, they will
eat the flesh that is rotting from your bones, and each day you will re-live
your hell “but YOU will never die" and the creature disappeared into the
darkness dragging Peter just as he appeared through the smoke.
The papers and media the next day read "Girl flies from car unharmed, while boy burns in a fiery hit and run" but the girl knew the truth. She knew that an angel had
caught her and protected her that night that the demon collector came for
Peter’s soul the night of his ultimate death.
