“RUN!”

Yoite screamed as the executioner approach. I started running but when I looked back I never saw him again.

October 25, 2013 my friend Tyler came up to me with an idea for Halloween.

“Yo! Miley! I got an idea for Halloween. I’ve heard that in the Indian Park there’s a sanctuary, we should go and investigate it.”

It seemed like a good idea, it was just a sanctuary after all. I called Mike, Julissa, my boyfriend Yoite, José and his brother Joshua, I told them about the idea that Tyler had come up with and Julissa backed up.

“Miley, I don’t believe it’s a good idea to go there on Halloween. According to a legend every Halloween an executioner comes back to life and takes the soul of those who dare to molest him on his ground of death. I’m not going, I’m just not.”

That is the excuse Julissa gave for chickening out. I just thought she was making that up but on October 30th 2013 Tyler came to us and told us the legend behind this sanctuary and how no one has been able to find it, and if someone did, it hasn’t come out alive to talk about it.

“Dude, that’s sick! It would be awesome if we actually find that sanctuary, we would be rich!”

My boyfriend said exited. I started to get a bit nauseous but I kept going. José and I had the cameras, we were the camera people. We met at the entrance of the park at 3:55 before they closed the gates. We had to stay an entire night investigating, because we had nothing more to do, nor we could go home that same night.

“This is creepy dude. It’s so different in day time.” Joshua said.

“That’s obvious dummy! Otherwise, how is it Halloween night if we were in a regular house sitting doing nothing?” José answered.

We kept going deeper and deeper into the woods, into the areas where there was no trail. This is Illegal to do so unless you’re with instructors because, probabilities are you’re gonna get lost. We went on for hours and we felt it was impossible to find the sanctuary, so we gave up and we started heading back. We kind of got lost and we started walking in circles. We found a track and we started following it, at certain point it vanished and we ended up in a weird place. We arrived at the sanctuary. There were pillars forming a circle, they were all covered in blood and had old burnt candles on top of each pillar. The ground had lots of old leaves and roots but if you moved them under it there was a huge pentagram. I could not believe my eyes, we actually found the sanctuary. We looked and investigated for hours. We found skeletons and blood and even a huge ass Ax.

“WOW! That is a mother trucker big ass ax! We could sell that!” my boyfriend said.

“No, don’t touch anything this is a place where many died as sacrifice we better get out!”

My nausea got even worse when I said that. Then we heard a rustle on the background. We started looking at each other.

“Tyler is not funny!”

I screamed. Tyler looked at me like is I were crazy.

“It's not me, I swear! I am as startled as you guys are!”

Then I received a text message from Julissa.

“Guys, Where are you? I'm at the park but I'm lost.”

It came into my head that Julissa was the one playing the prank on us. So we started saying:

“Julissa! We know is you the one making the prank on us, can you pleas stop it?”

Then we heard a loud scream

“AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!”

“What the Fuck?!” Mike finally had spoken.

Another rustle caught our attention, it came from my back and when we looked *thud* Julissa's head fell on my feet. I was shocked, I couldn't move. I stared at Julissa's head with my mouth and eyes wide open. Her expression was the same I had but she had blood all over her face and no body attached to her head. Then this massive guy came out of the woods, he looked like an executioner from the middle ages. He had chains all over his body and a huge Ax on his hands. He roared and lifted his ax against me. Yoite grabbed my hand and pulled me, the ax missed me by a hair. We all started running, The executioner at first stayed looking at us, kind of like giving us lead, Then he started running. He looked more like he was giving long jumps and he came real near in just a matter of seconds. I was horrified! Yoite and I were the last ones but we kept running. We passed Mike he wasn't the most athletic one so he slowly fell behind. I didn't wanted to leave Mike to die but there was no other option of survival. As mike fell behind the executioner rapidly approached mike and when he was near enough he sliced mike in half and kept running.

“Three different roads, lets split! Tyler keep direct! Joshua and José go right, Yoite and I will go left!”

I screamed and we split. When I looked back the executioner wasn't behind us anymore, But I did notice Tyler went back. I stopped and Yoite looked at me and grabbed my hand.

“Don't, Leave him!”

I pulled my hand letting me free and I started running back.

“Tyler! No! Tyler!”

Yoite grabbed my hand again and picked me up. He carried me running away while I watched Tyler kneel down pick up something that he rapidly put in his mouth. I guess it was his air pump, he suffered from asthma. He was on his knees and when he looked up, the executioner picked him up by the head with one hand. Tyler held the executioner's hands, kicked and screamed. Five seconds later he squished Tyler's head in front of my eyes. I still had the camera, which captured every terrifying moment I lived. Yoite and I kept running I was already nerve wrecked, I had lost two of my friends in just a matter of minutes. I didn't know what to do. Then I remembered I had my phone and I called the police.

“We're deeply sorry we can not do anything because is a private park. Is closed at this time we can be there tomorrow morning. Is that fine with you mam?”

“NO! There is a phyco running around with an ax on his hands, two of my friends were killed by him already!”

The call fell and I could not get more signal. My hopes went slowly decreasing. Yoite suggested to go back and follow the path that José and Joshua took and I agreed. The path that we had taken had no change at all as we kept going. When we got to the three way track we took the last one. As we went on we found José's camera when I looked at it the images said it all. They stopped running halfway in, they started discussing what to do next when they heard a rustle. José glanced the camera to the back of his brother and zoomed it in and saw the shape of the executioner and started running again. Joshua stayed behind and José didn't notice. The camera showed how Joshua was smashed into a tree, which we found later as we walked afraid that we might encounter the executioner. It was so disgusting I vomited as we walked. José found the exit to the park's beach and ran out the woods. The executioner slowly fainted as he approached the exit of the woods.

“Joshua! We made it!”

José turned just to see that his brother was missing. There was a sudden stop of the camera, apparently José stopped it to see the what had happen to his brother. When he turned the camera back on he was crying. I started crying also. Yoite had a sad look, I know he wanted to cry too, but he showed himself strong so I didn't loose it more than I already had. As we approached the exit we saw the ending of the tape. José committed suicide. He went in the forest screaming.

“Executioner! Executioner! Come the fuck out! Come kill me aren’t you interested in my meet? Come and get me you fat ass son of a bitch!”

As he turned the executioner appeared behind him, we believe he got grabbed by the head and ripped in two. The thing is that when we found the camera there was blood only on the camera but there was no body. I believe the executioner took it with him. As I saw the exit I looked at Yoite and smiled I thought it was over, but when we noticed we hear big stomps on the floor. I looked back and the executioner was running after us. We started running.
 

“RUN!”

Yoite screamed as the executioner approach. I started running but when I looked back I never saw him again. I looked back at the video and I saw Yoite confront the executioner, Yoite dodge most of the attacks but the executioner grabbed Yoite by the head and as the sun raised they both vanished like the mist. The part that I most hate is that I never told Yoite that he was gonna be a father 8 months from then. I sometimes believe he's still alive, that he is deep in the woods of the Indian park trying to get out, and that one day he'll come home where he belongs.
