Marks!

It was a new experience living in tranquil peace

of the countryside no traffic or neighbours

retired from the city of violence and corruption

he awoke that first day mid-morning

no longer on the tube heading for his office nice

to retire and have a life great advice!

 

The downside recently divorced an expensive time

yet was glad the dog came to

always got on better with Betsy his beloved Alsatian

who had been noisy in the night

after loudly barking had then joined me on the bed

on my pillow placed her head!

 

Too  tired to be roused or concerned with her warning

but surprised at the whimpering

that made me sense she had been scared by something

sitting up she jumped down

gave me that look to follow with trepidation complied

where was she guiding me felt petrified!

 

The pure air and landscape hit me a wonderful feeling

this was short lived as Betsy guided me

to my SUV where the damage to the bonnet was clear

deep gouged marks had ripped it apart

she snarled from a distance but would not go near

what formidable entity was living here?

 

At this moment I stand next to Betsy on my cell phone

recording the image and words as proof

that something fearsome co-exists in the wilderness

there are no tracks on the ground

nor signs or sounds that could give me any evidence

that feeling of being watched grows more intense!

 

The badly damaged phone was found by a friend

concerned he could not make contact

an intense search was carried out of the vast area

nothing was found of the man or dog

though the locals knew the legend of the beast

that upon flesh it did seek to feast!

 

Or could there be an even deeper unsolved mystery?

Ale House!

Sure the reason the door was warped

had to be the aged wood

eighteen forties building material

altered from a corner shop

into another working man’s ale house

he lived here with his spouse.

 

The new landlord of this establishment

in urgent need of an upgrade

solidly built thought it had potential

constructed of stern stuff

on entering had an uneasy sensation

certain just imagination!

 

But when his  pet and guard dog faltered

at the entrance to a room

where the wooden frame was warped

sitting rigid and whimpering

it made him more aware of the ambience

then the problem not immense!

 

He often saw the dog sitting there alone

but one day his wife asked

to look inside the room needing storage

reluctantly opened the door

she was not bothered about going inside

to her no fear to hide!

 

True  was empty dusty with a damp odour

but ideal for the purpose

one day heard a noise the door half-open

was brave and glanced in

just as a glass vase flipped off a small chair

giving him a big  scare!

 

Like the dog kept his distance from the area

until he noticed after closing

preparing to take the dog for his nightly walk

he was nowhere to be found

until his wife frantically came to him worried

to that room both scurried!

 

Shaking said their dog was distressed inside

upon their arrival outside

sure enough heard the barking and howling

the door completely shut

no idea how this could become sealed tight

or the dog inside full of fright!

 

It should have made an almighty loud bang

but nothing was heard

and why would a scared animal venture in

not easy breaking solid wood

the dog ran passed never settling again

the couple could not remain!

 

Whatever it was concerned them no more!

The Basement!

Excitement filled the car a new adventure

the family had moved.

Through dad’s job they had to relocate

it was very short notice.

The company organised a house to rent

they were really content.

 

Their own furniture had been put in storage

except for personal items.

Mid afternoon drove onto the long drive

of the single storey property.

Yet each experienced an ominous feeling

it didn’t seem appealing!

 

As they stopped their pet terrier began to bark

reluctant to get out of the car!

None of them were keen to actually get inside

but mum and dad led the way.

They immediately noticed the pungent smell

making them feel unwell.

 

Luxurious  but had an oppressive atmosphere

their dog reluctantly went in.

And headed straight towards the large kitchen

sitting by the basement door!

With suspicious eyes saw a ball rolling his way

he certainly didn’t want to play!

 

Though locked it had suddenly opened on its own

making him snarl in fear.

The daughter was drawn to the basement entrance

hearing a childs voice

As a mist hovered and slid down the wooden stairs

just as they entered in pairs.

 

Then her parents and brother said they’d heard it to

unnerved turned to each other.

As all the family slowly went down into the basement

the door closed and bolted!

Their dog Mace backed away barking and cowered

this adventure now soured!

 

Unable to open it had no way to go but down

finding a light switch flicked it on.

The odour was very strong to their dismay

a decomposed body lay.

Running back up the steep stairs they heard barking

and the door being unbolted.

 

The light was exhilarating as they ran onto the drive

passed the surprised rescuer.

The dogs loud pitiful whaling had brought him here

something was wrong it was clear!

The house was soon sealed off as a search revealed

a family slaughtered in the basement.

 

They had been there for some months undiscovered

nobody knew who they were!

Mace and his masters family found somewhere new

deeply effected by the experience

And the search for the killer was put into operation

spreading to the whole nation.

 

Unable to explain the ghostly images encountered

and the dogs unusual behaviour.

They couldn’t forget the day that started so happily

ending in a horrific way!

The dreadful images forever haunting their dreams

nobody was ever caught it seems!

Jess!

She laid on the varnished wooden floor observing

nothing seemed different.

The children played and jumped on her back

as normal sighed getting up.

Walking away keeping a quiet presence

the love for her immense!

 

Part of the family they had called her Jess

not one of the illegal breeds.

A golden labrador with a gentle nature

but on that day it changed!

An urgent call to the police was received

the scene they hadn’t perceived.

 

Jess sat calmly on the wooden front porch

covered in blood wagging her tail!

Inside the house two badly mutilated bodies

as if attacked by a savage beast!

They heard children whimpering nearby

an awful sobbing cry!

 

Two children were found in a walk in wardrobe

both in a state of shock.

Jess offered no resistance when she was handled

licking and barking loudly.

The police were very wary putting her in a cage

there was no sign of any rage!

 

The dwelling was sealed the children taken to safety

after tests it was proved.

Jess had killed her owners the only witnesses told

of their friend going crazy!

The once beloved pet was quickly put to sleep

sadness in the county ran deep!

 

It was never disclosed that in the dogs blood sample

an unknown virus was found!

But it just disappeared before its origin was traced

so the mystery remained!

The case was closed a tragic accident and filed away

until another call the following Sunday!

 

Now the authorities began to fear the worst!
