Excerpt from Once Upon a December Nightmare
The legend that started it all ...

“It reminds me of this legend I came across.”
“Legend? What l-legend?” Mary winced at her voice cracking.
“Well, I was doing some research for my Civil War class, and I came across a website. According to this myth, some Confederate scouts near the Virginia-West Virginia border disappeared.”
“What happened to them?” Mary enjoyed history like Cassie and had to know what the legend was about. Cassie looked at each one in turn and slowly smiled. Mary held her breath.
“Planning to assassinate Lincoln, these Confederate soldiers wanted to stop the war once and for all. They journeyed north through forests, but something got to them first.” She paused as if to stretch the suspense. Mary didn’t know if she could take it anymore before Cassie continued her tale.
“One soldier survived. He stumbled into a small West Virginian town and babbled about a humanlike creature living in the woods. They organized a search party, but they only found bits of the soldiers scattered along the leaf-covered ground. Whoever, or whatever, murdered them was never brought to justice. They say that it’s still out here, watching and waiting. And it’s hungry.”
