The Portrait of Horrors

By Shadowgate

….

27 year old Beth Hardaway just lost her grandmother to a battle with cancer. She along with her eight year old daughter Caitlin cleaned out her grandma's apartment.

After cleaning everything out Caitlin took notice of a picture frame. The frame was golden and black on the inside.

"Mom this looks weird" said Caitlin.

Beth asked "what's so weird about a picture frame?"

Caitlin answered "well the gold and black is just so powerful."

Beth said "it's a nice old fashioned picture frame. I want to keep it."

Caitlin put the picture frame in the back seat of the car and they went home.

Two friends of Caitlin came over later that day. Their names were Jennifer Connor and Harry Fame.

When Caitlin showed Jennifer the picture frame and how shiny the golden outer layers were Jennifer was impressed.

"The gold is beautiful" Jennifer said.

Then suddenly there was a flash.

Caitlin and Jennifer saw a picture of Jennifer in the park. Suddenly a car drove by. The man in the car jumped out and grabbed Jennifer and drove off.

Both girls were horrified with the image they saw.

Jennifer screamed and then Caitlin yelled "MOM!"

Beth rushed in and asked what the screaming was about.

Caitlin and Jennifer both explained they saw an image in the picture frame.

Beth said "alright girls you're too old for that kind of make believe."

Caitlin said "Jennifer really saw it and so did I."

Beth said "ENOUGH NOW IT'S HARD ENOUGH GOING THROUGH THE DEATH OF MY GRANDMOTHER WITHOUT THIS BULLSHIT! THE PICTURE FRAME IS JUST SITTING THERE."

A minute later nine year old Harry Frame came over. He had flowers and told Caitlin that he was sorry for her loss.

Caitlin said "Harry you've got to see this picture frame that we found in my grandma's apartment when we were cleaning it out."

Harry asked "what's wrong with it?"

Caitlin answered "it's evil."

Caitlin let Harry come in and led him to the living room where the picture frame was on a table by the television. Harry asked how a picture frame could be evil and soon it flashed again.

This time it showed a picture of Harry Fame hanging from a tree.

All three children screamed.

Beth came in and said "alright what's the problem?"

Harry said "I saw a picture of myself hanging from a tree in that picture frame."

Beth said "not you too."

Jennifer said "it's true."

Beth said "ENOUGH!"

Beth went on to say "I don't want to hear anymore" and suddenly the picture frame flashed again and showed images of skulls.

Beth screamed and yelled "CAITLIN GET THAT PICTURE FRAME OUT OF THIS HOUSE!"

THE END
