Some Secrets Are Best Kept In The Dark 2 Chapter 2:Something More Aug 16, 2019
~Thursday September 27th, 2019, 2:00 AM~
Daniel wakes up in a heavy sweat to the sounds of screaming. He calls out for his roommate, but Amiyah doesn't give him an answer. The screams stop and he calls out again

Daniel:Amiyah?!? What's going on?!?

The curtain rips back to reveal the Reaper, the figure that supposedly killed him in the tunnel beneath the school.

Reaper:Daniel. I come back to check on Riverton and what do I find? Loose ends…

Daniel falls out of his bed and he calls out for a nurse. He crawls away from the Reaper, not being able to see the enjoyment on Jeremiah's face through the mask.

Reaper:Daniel. You-

The Reaper is interrupted by the sound of metal hitting the back of his head. The Reaper drops to the floor with a hard thud. Standing behind the masked man is Shawn and Julian. Shawn is wielding a metal baseball bat, his weapon of choice to stun the killer. Daniel looks on with wide eyes

Daniel:How did..How did you know?

Julian helps Daniel up while Shawn explains
Shawn:We sit outside in my car every night. We have been ever since you transferred to this Hospital. We figured that the Reaper would want to come finish the job.

Shawn walks over to the still body and he removes the mask to reveal Jeremiah. Although the back of his head was heavily bruised from where he was hit, and blood seeped from the wound, he still had a pulse.

Julian looks over to the other bed. Amiyah is lying in her bed with her throat slit open. Her wide eyes and frightened expression tell the tale of what she could not.

Daniel:If I had the bed next to the door. It would've been me…

Shawn walks back over to Julian and Daniel
Shawn:The cops have been called. You two get out of here, I'm going to make sure he gets apprehended.

Julian nods
Julian:I'm just glad we finally caught my dad's killer..

~END SCENE~

~6:00 AM~
Amanda is standing in front of the Hospital when the camera begins rolling. Although she tries her best, she cannot contain her excitement.

Amanda:We have breaking news to start your day here in Riverton. Behind me is the Riverton Medical Center, where last night the Reaper attacked.

Although he added another victim to his list, 23 year old Amiyah Miller, who previously survived one of his attacks a few months ago in Cedar Rapids, had her throat slit open in her sleep. Daniel Myers, who was mercilessly stabbed last year while in the line of duty, was saved from death by two heroes. Julian Mackson, son of Zack Mackson who tragically died last year as a part of the massacre, and Shawn Bell. The Riverton Reaper was captured, and is now in Police custody.

The cameraman turns the camera off and Amanda lets out a huge sigh of relief. Her cameraman starts putting the camera back into the van and she walks to the passenger's side of the van.

Amanda jumps a bit when she spots a man leaning against the van.
Amanda:Hello?

The man smiles at her. He was missing a few teeth and his hair was all mangled. By the look of his outfit, Amanda could tell that this man was probably homeless.

Todd:Well well well. You think this is over don't you?

Amanda stops in her tracks. She wasn't scared really, just a bit annoyed. She was used to the creeps by now.

Todd:He's coming. None of you are safe,

Amanda sighs. She just wanted to go home and rest. She didn't have time for this
Amanda:Ok? Who is coming?

Todd grins again. This time Amanda found herself a little more creeped out. His wide eyes refused to blink. Like a child telling his mom what to get him for Christmas, Todd let out an excited sounding whisper.

Todd:The Reaper is coming to kill you all…

~END SCENE~

~8:00 AM~
Casey, Alex, and Adrian are walking down the hallway, talking about what to do for their history project. Adrian clutches a bunch of books next to his chest as they make their way through oncoming students.

Alex:So… what about Willie Nelson?

Casey laughs and Adrian doesn't talk. Instead he just shrugs his shoulders

Casey:Why him?
Alex:C'mon, the man is a pioneer..!
Casey:Well, maybe. Let's keep thinking though..

Adrian looks at the both of them and he finally speaks up
Adrian:How about-

He's interrupted when he bumps into Kathryn. Books and Fliers go everywhere as they both sprawl onto the tiled floor and Adrian cries out. Kathryn quickly gets up and she immediately starts apologizing.

Kathryn:Oh my god I'm so sorry! I wasn't paying attention!

Kathryn helps Adrian pick up his books before grabbing her fliers. She hands him one and she gives him a bright smile

Kathryn:Vote for Kathryn!

She hands fliers to Alex and Casey before leaving. Adrian just stands there for a few seconds.

Casey:Are you ok Adrian?
She asks him in a worried tone

Adrian:I'm better than ok…

~END SCENE~

Austin is in the back of his history class sleeping before the class begins when a hard thud shakes him awake. Standing in front of his desk is Vera and Mitsuko. Mitsuko just stands there while Vera pulls out a $20 dollar bill.

Vera:So Austin, I heard you like to make art..

Austin glares at her, not enjoying her reasoning for waking him up.
Austin:I also don't like being interrupted. Anything else you want to know about me?

Vera flashes a fake smile, wanting to play nice for now
Vera:I can see you're quite busy, and I have a problem that needs solving. I need someone to take care of it for me, and I think you're creative enough for the job. Help me become Student Body President, and this money is yours because let's face it, $20 for you is like $100 for me.

Austin shrugs. $20 was $20. He didn't mind making some extra money
Austin:So what do you need?

Vera:Destroy Kathryn Layne's reputation. You do that for me, and you get your money.

Austin:Fine..
He reaches out for the bill, only for Vera to pull it away

Vera:You get it AFTER the job is done, and only then!
With that, Vera walks away. Mitsuko looks at Austin for a moment and she slips him a $5 out of her purse.

Mitsuko:What she doesn't know won't hurt her…

She winks at Austin before walking out of the classroom.

~END SCENE~

~8:00 PM~
Jeremiah sits in the holding cell, holding a bag of ice over the back of his head. In the room with him are Mayor Carter, Sheriff Coulter, Daniel, Julian,  Courtney, and Shawn.

Carter has his jacket on, an indication of a short stay.

Carter:Well I have to say. Coulter, under your watch this town caught The Reaper in only one night. I must say, this does look good on you..

Shawn:But Julian and I apprehended him. Coulter and Miller didn't arrive on the scene until after he was already taken care of!

The Mayor ignores Shawn and he gives Coulter a pat on the back

Carter:Keep up the good work!
Carter takes out a cigar and he walks out of the room. Coulter walks up to the cell. Jeremiah doesn't even look up at him, he just stares at the wall

Jeremiah:What are you going to do to me?

Coulter looks over at Courtney, who is already ready to follow his every word.
Coulter:Well Courtney is going to keep watch on you overnight. Once we find a facility we want to send you to, you're going to be transferred.

Daniel stands up slowly and he walks up next to Coulter
Daniel: I'll help keep watch. I'm not going to let him out of my sight..

Coulter shrugs
Coulter:Do what you have to do. Just don't go roughin him up. I don't need a lawsuit on my hands..

Julian:What about Shawn and I? Can we stay?
The Sheriff shrugs once again. As long as his prisoner didn't escape, he was fine with it. Volunteers were always welcome.

Coulter:I'm going to go home. Call me if you need me

With that, Coulter leaves the room. Courtney stands next to the cell attentively.

Courtney:I can take the first watch. I don't plan on sleeping tonight..
Daniel just laughs

Daniel:Well you're in luck, because neither do I..

Dominic is riding into town on his new ride. He has his high beams on, so it's not hard to spot the figure standing in front of the "Welcome to Riverton" sign. He parks his bike on the side of the road, and he's instantly creeped out by what he sees.

Todd's body is nailed to a cross like a scarecrow. His shirt was ripped open and hay fell out of a sliced open torso. It looked as though his guts had been removed in place of the hay, although that didn't stop blood from oozing out of the gigantic wound.

But the part that freaked out Dominic the most was Todd's face. He still had that wide-eyed, troublesome grin that he had given Amanda just that morning.

Some Secrets Are Best Kept In The Dark 2 Chapter 1:Starting Anew Aug 13, 2019
EMTs flood into the underground tunnels to locate the bodies. Samuel, Zach, Nolan, and Anya are escorted out on stretchers one by one. However, when they reach Daniel, one of the EMTs find a weak pulse. Frantically he waves for his colleagues.

EMT:We have a live one over here! Someone give me some help!

~END SCENE~

~September 26th, 2019, 8:00 AM~
The Mayor of Riverton stands at a podium. Behind him is the newly renovated Town Hall building. The Mayor waves towards the citizens and he even takes a couple of photos. Today  wasn't only the anniversary of the deaths that started the massacre, but today was the day that the town of Riverton was finally going to start anew. There were policemen on both sides of the Mayor, and after adjusting his tie, he started to talk.

Mayor Carter:My fellow citizens, thank you for coming here today. Today is bittersweet, as it marks the 1 year anniversary since the massacre began. But today isn't about the past. Today is about the future, and it is the culmination of a year's worth of rebuilding. Not only our beautiful city, but our hearts as well.

Carter takes a moment of silence before continuing.

Mayor Carter:That is why, starting today, a memorial will be built in front of Riverton High to honor the 21 lives that were caught in the devastating path of the Riverton Reaper. We also have brought in a brand new police force. From Des Moines and Davenport, volunteers from other Districts have stepped in to help keep watch over the city. I would now like to take the time to introduce to you the new Sheriff of Riverton, Jacob Coulter!

People clap as Coulter takes the podium, and he humbly waits for them to quiet down.

Coulter:Thank you, really! When I saw what happened on the news last year, I wanted to do whatever I could to help rebuild this town. You have all gone through so much, but I assure you that as long as I am here you can rest easy tonight, and every night moving forward

Suddenly one of the reporters pushes forward towards the podium. Much to the Mayor's disapproval, she asks the new Sheriff what is on everyone's mind.

Amanda:What if the Reaper is still living in Riverton, hiding among us?

For a moment, there is silence. The Mayor leans in to try to shoot down her question.

Carter:Well, uh the Sheriff doesn't have time to answer that-

Coulter holds a hand up to silence his boss. He didn't mind the tough questions.

Coulter:If the Reaper is still here, I will find them no matter what. This town, and it's citizens, has plenty of secrets. You can't hide a thing from me…

~END SCENE~

Daniel Myers is sitting upright in his Hospital bed watching the conference on the TV. A look of irritation is plastered onto his face as he watches his successor speak. On the other side of the curtain he hears a woman speak.

Amiyah:So I guess they're just retiring you then? Just like that?

Daniel sighs and he pulls the curtain back to see his roommate.

Amiyah isn't even in her bed, she's standing next to it while she watches the TV.

Amiyah:That woman is right though. He never left us.

Daniel sighs and he takes his eyes off of the TV. He's heard her "story" countless times before.

Daniel:So what if you were attacked? Why wouldn't he finish you? Why let you go? And why you specifically?

Amiyah:Guess he can't handle a real woman…

She pulls a cigarette from her purse, contraband that she snuck in. She lights it with a lighter and she nervously glances back at the TV.

Amiyah:Today is the anniversary. It all started a year ago today. I have a bad feeling about tonight..

~END SCENE~

~11:00 AM~
Plastered all over the walls of the school are flyers with Kathryn's face on them. Under her picture on every flyer has 'Vote for Kathryn' in bold, black lettering. There is even a flyer on Vera's locker. Vera and Mitsuko stare at it for a moment before Vera rips it off. She shoves the crinkled flyer into Mitsuko's arms and she glares at her.

Vera:I thought that the new girl wasn't going to put a dent in my campaign? YOU said that she wasn't running!

Mitsuko cowers and she takes a step back. Vera can and has ruined lives of several students before. Mitsuko was already in a bad way, she didn't want things to get worse.

Mitsuko:I-I'm sorry! I didn't know! I can fix things!

Vera's glare didn't break. When Mitsuko stepped back, Vera stepped forward.

Vera:You better. You know the deal, if I don't become Student Body President, your social life is OVER!

Vera turns and storms off in a huff, leaving Mitsuko alone in the hallway to cry alone.

~END SCENE~

~2:30 PM~
Casey is in the middle of class when she sees something in the corner of her eye. A man dressed in black standing at the Bus Stop. He is facing her direction. He appears to stare at her. Alex bumps her softly with her shoulder which makes her jump. Alex laughs, having not expected to bother her.

Alex:Hey...Casey you seem a bit trippy. You aren't under the influence are you?

Casey laughs and she turns to Alex, quickly dismissing what she saw.

Casey:No, I was just daydreaming I guess. I'm sorry

Alex laughs again

Alex:All good! I just want to hear your thoughts on what we should do for our project. If my clan finds out I am failing in any of my classes im gonna be toast..

Casey smiles and she looks down at her notebook. Nothing was written down, which was quite unusual for her.

Casey:I am still brainstorming. Who do you want to cover?

Alex:Well, I don't know. I'm gonna be honest Case, I had some Devil's Lettuce earlier. I can't feel my eyelids.

Casey rolls her eyes and she laughs. The final bell rings to signal the end of the day.

Casey:How about we pick up later? When you're 100%?

Alex nods

Alex:Sounds like a plan..!

~END SCENE~

~6:00 PM~
Austin is spray painting the back wall of the School, making some sort of mural. Evan is watching on with curiosity.

Evan:So, what are you doing?

Austin looks back at Evan and he rolls his eyes. Usually he has this time to himself.

Austin: I'm working on a new art piece. Want to help?

He points towards a duffel bag full of cans and Evan walks over to it.

Evan:I mean, I guess I'll help. I've never vandalized before

Austin stops spraying and he walks over to Evan

Austin: I'm not "vandalizing". I'm just, expressing my feelings through Art. I like performing for a crowd, and I can't do that with notebook paper..

Evan nods and he grabs a can of Red Spray Paint.

Evan:Alright. So what are we drawing?

Austin grins mischievously

Austin: You'll see..

~END SCENE~

~8:00 PM~
Amanda storms into her father's office after rushing by his secretary. She was obviously fuming about something. When she walks in, Carter is sitting at his desk doing paperwork. He looks up at the commotion and he smiles

Carter:Amanda! My baby girl, it's so good to see you! How have you been?

Amanda folds her arms in front of her chest. The act wasn't going to work this time

Amanda:Cut the shit dad. I watched the video of the conference. You completely edited my questions out! I thought we've been over this, you can't ruin my career!

The Mayor stays eerily calm, even while his daughter raises her voice.

Carter:I have a job too. I am trying to rebuild this city, and I don't need these people listening to your conspiracy theories. The Reaper is gone, and you need to stop telling people different.

Amanda shakes her head

Amanda:You don't have proof that he's gone

Carter:And you have proof that he's here?!?

Amanda's expression changes as she does her best to backtrack. Her evidence was a journalistic instinct.

Carter:Exactly. Now get the fuck out of my office, and stop trying to scare people out of my town. The last reporter that was as ambitious as you was found dead in the tunnels underneath the school.

Amanda was appalled. Was her father really threatening her?

Amanda:Dad, is that a threat..

Carter:It can be whatever you make it to be. Now get out of my office, I'm busy..!

~END SCENE~

~10:00 PM~
Jeremiah is sitting on the bus by himself. An olive colored backpack is slung over one shoulder. He checks the contents over once again and he smiles when he sees the mask.

Jeremiah:Soon. We'll finish what we started…"

The bus stops and Jeremiah tips the driver before getting off. The first thing he sees when he steps out is the Green sign and in big white lettering are the words

Season 2 will be more interactive and more immersive. Before every episode I will mail you a choice. One might be good, or both. However, if you make the wrong choice, you put your character at risk of death.

This will start from the Prelude, and I will mail choices shortly after the episode is up. If I don't get a response in 24 hours a choice will randomly be selected for you.

As far as characters are concerned, you can either take over one of the characters above

If you create a newer character, you'll have more freedom creatively, however you might not be in every episode.

If you pick one of the characters above, you might not get as much creativity with the character, but have a higher chance of having a major role in the series

Below is the basic application for a character

Name:
Age:
Gender:
Sexuality:
Title(The Jock, The New Kid, Etc):
Bio:
Traits(3 good and 3 bad):

Depression Jun 27, 2019
I just need to vent for a moment, on a topic that has plagued me for awhile now. Yes, I understand that this site has gone to shit, and I know this is not anything new, but I feel it's always better to write things out. Maybe, this can also help someone, someone who feels a similar way, or someone who should know that they aren't the only ones suffering from this.

I know I am far from the most liked person on this site, far from it. I am pretty sure most people hate me, but then again I am never sure if that is just me or my paranoia.

The worst person on this planet is me. I hate myself more than I hate anyone else, and if I can't even stand to be around myself, why would anyone else want to? That's the logic. That is the cycle that goes through my mind.

If it wasn't for this site when I was 16, 17, etc. I probably would have offed myself long ago. Most people on this site don't give a damn, but for those that did, it helped. It really did. For all the friends that feel like they can't help, you do.

But Depression isn't something that you can just beat. It always comes back, you can never escape it. That feeling of not being good enough never goes away for good. Sure, there will be days where I feel like I actually want to live, but those days are few and far between.

Tonight will be a tough one for me. I have gone through many before, and honestly, sometimes I am not sure if I will survive the night without having an overdose. But that isn't important.

None of that matters. It's the same old story. What you should know is that if you have a friend going through Depression, or Anxiety, or whatever else they are going through, go easy on them. Trust me, they don't want to feel this way. Nobody does. Sometimes it might not feel like you're breaking through, but you do help.

And if you are having nights where you feel like giving up, message me. I may not respond right away, but I know what hell feels like, and it is something I wouldn't want anyone else to go through alone. I may not know you personally, or we may have never even talked before, but I know what it's like when you are stuck with the person you hate the most, and nobody else. You don't have to feel alone..
