Dead Man’s Curve
By: Drac Von Stoller
Copyright February 22, 2015 by Drac Von Stoller
Greg, Billy and Bobby were a wild bunch when they are together and had a thing for taking things to the limit, but their thrill seeking days were about to come to a screeching halt when the three boys piled into Greg’s ’68 Camaro and decided to show their friends back at school that dead man’s curve isn’t such a dangerous curve after all and should not be called dead man’s curve.
As the three boys were heading to their final destination dead man’s curve Billy was handing out the beers to add to the excitement and couldn’t wait to laugh at their scared friends about how they sped around dead man’s curve and lived to tell about it. The road conditions weren’t in their favor because of the rain and wind making it hard for Greg to keep control of his car at all times. To make matters worse a black car appeared out of nowhere with its headlights too bright for Greg to see where he was going around dead man’s curve. Greg and his friends were pumped up ready to make that deadly turn around dead man’s curve and return back to school the next morning to make a laughing stock of his scared classmates, but that would not be the case at all.
Dead Man’s Curve won and Greg’s Camaro went sailing off the cliff to their deaths.
Since the three boys never got a chance to brag about driving around dead man’s curve and live to tell about it a search party was sent out the next morning to look for the boy’s whereabouts. After about an hour into the search a helicopter that joined in the search spotted smoke at the bottom of the cliff where dead man’s curve is and upon closer observation by the helicopter it was determined that the car was Greg’s Camaro with three charred bodies that the morgue identified as the three missing boy’s.
A closed casket funeral was held the following week and the next day the classmates held a vigil at dead man’s curve to pay their last respects to their friends Greg, Billy and Bobby for being brave enough to take on dead man’s curve even though they paid with their lives.
Legend has it that any car that dares to drive to dead man’s curve after midnight won’t live to tell about it because the ’68 Camaro that Greg, Billy and Bobby were killed in can be seen driving head on with the cars headlights on bright blinding the other drivers vision causing them to lose control of their vehicle and sail over the cliff to their deaths just like what happened to Greg, Billy and Bobby.
Drac Von Stoller’s imagination and fascination for the Horror genre began when he was a little boy watching his favorite actors such as Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi on his little black and white television alone in his dark room. Drac would watch these horror movies for hours and build model kits of his favorite characters like Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein and even the Munster’s car from his favorite television series. Then as time went on and nothing was left to the imagination in the new horror movies, Drac still loved watching the old movies he so loved as a little boy. Then as Drac became an adult he decided one day that he would write a short story in the horror genre and let some of his friends read it and see what they thought. Drac’s first short story was titled “Death in the Wilderness,” which would be considered flash fiction but this would be Drac’s test to see if he was destined to be an author. Sure enough when people read “Death in the Wilderness” they loved it but couldn’t understand why Drac didn’t keep on with the story but Drac knew all along that if what they read was so good then Drac has succeeded. This gave Drac the confidence he needed to keep on writing more and more short stories. The rest is history Drac has now written 155 short stories to date that have been downloaded in 133 Countries and has finished working on Volume VI of the same title.
