Report #83 2013, June 9th.
We have currently entered a certain town, so I have internet connection.
After that little trip down IT's memory lane, I didn't stumble upon anything for a while, what I notice now, that I didn't notice then, was that I never got tired, I mean I did get tired physically from the low gravity and the constantly changing weather, but I never wanted to sleep, or anything like that, in fact, all the time I had spent there, I was always moving, never stopping for a nap, or anything like that.
My long walk through the never ending paths, I started to hear whispers, all around me, they were not in my head, because there were several of them and they were either getting louder, or quieter, if they were in my head, the volume wouldn't change. So it was safe to assume that I was being followed by someone, or something. Drove me insane.
Next thing I stumbled upon, well, it was a graveyard, there was nothing really weird about it, except for the fact that out of some graves there were tree's sticking out, some taller than others, which meant they were not placed in there, they are actually growing, with blood coming out of the ground and covering the branches. When I was walking into the graveyard, it didn't seem to be so big, but once I turned around, I saw that the graveyard was fucking huge, and I do mean huge, as if people of the whole world were buried there.
I went through some tombstones, red some names, didn't see anybody I knew, except for a couple of names, some of those names belonged to people that are currently following my blog, Kelevra included, all of those graves had a tree growing out of them, I don't know if this is worth noting, but Kelevra's tree was practically growing as I was looking at it.
I also found a familiar name on a tombstone, a guy that was also blogging in the past but later ended up dead, he's grave had no tree growing out of it, so I decided to see what was inside and decided to dig it up. I expected to see a body, or something among those lines, but all I saw was a stump and that is it.
I believe that, that graveyard was a totem pole of sorts, I don't know, I wanted to see what would happen if I cut one of the trees down with the axe I had found earlier, I wanted to cut down Kelevra's tree in particular, but I was interrupted.
Remember how Strider and JP warned me about there being creatures on The Path? Well, yeah, turns out, those whispers were coming from them. One of those things leaped from one of the trees, out of the forest that surrounded the graveyard, landing right on top of me, piercing it's big ass fucking claws through my shoulder and arm area, making me fall down, couldn't reach my gun, but the axe I found, was, however, in my reach, so I grabbed it and stabbed the thing in the head several times, the thing didn't want to go down so easily, but in the end, it did.
That thing, not to say it was scary, but it was freaky, mainly because it was so thin that I could actually see through it's skin when the sun light fell on it, I could see the skeleton, the skull, the deformed teeth, the organs that were of unknown nature to me, the eye balls that were completely black.
I was starting to hear more whispers and they were getting louder, I started running for it from the graveyard, once I turned around for a second, I saw about five of those things leaping from tree, to tree, chasing me. I didn't really pay attention to where I was running, so when I fell down, I was a bit surprised, the reason I fell down, is because one of those things came out of the ground, grabbing my foot and trying to bite it, luckily, I reacted quickly and shot it right in the head with my Colt. 45.
I had no time to get up and start running again, because those things would catch up, so I had to get out my Remington and wait for them to get closer, in order to blast them away, was a bit tricky to do with their agility and speed, but I managed.
From there on I started moving again, after that graveyard, the real mind fuckery began.
But more on that when we arrive to the next town.
Also, thought it was worth noting, tell me, while I was absent, was there any action taking place in Germany? I swear, this is the third town, where I see police officers in groups, literally I see crime scene, after crime scene, after crime scene in every town. At some point I was even able to spot about 5 people in hoodies, on the rooftop, near a crime scene, couldn't see if they had masks.
