WW121: The Haunting of Lupine Manor—Chapter 10

Date and Time: Unknown

“Well, I think that’s enough excitement for the day.” Olivia clasps her hands together, her smiling face incongruous with the bloody carcass at her feet.

“Why don’t we all rest up and start again tomorrow? That is, if you still want to continue. Of course, as has always been the case, you’re welcome to leave Lupine Manor if this is all becoming too much for you.”

“You’re lying to us,” Annie accuses. “That goat was frightening in its own right, but I can tell that it was telling the truth.”

Olivia turns to Annie, her entire demeanor shifting. The malevolence that you’ve always felt lurking underneath the surface moves to the forefront, and you’re surprised that Annie stands her ground.

Olivia Crain, changed. Or revealed?

“Very well. If you think I’m lying, then leave the manor. Nothing is stopping you.” Olivia’s voice is cold.

“That’s exactly what I’m going to do!” Annie retorts, turning to the other guests. “And if any of you still have your own mind, then I suggest you follow me!”

Annie turns and nearly runs out the manor entrance, hurrying to her parked car. You all follow her at a slower pace, not to escape, but to… watch. A spectator to what is about to come.

You notice dimly that her car looks dirtier and more worn down than it should in the two weeks you’ve stayed at the manor. It takes several tries for her to start it.

She starts driving the moment the car starts but slows down when she’s in front of them.

“Please,” she pleads. “Leave Lupine Manor if you still can.”

Annie turns away for the last time, and you watch her drive away. Something makes you look at Olivia, and her expression is one of anticipation. You barely have time to think about why when a loud crash startles you.

Annie’s car is wrapped around the trunk of a giant oak tree.

Annie (Emm) is dead. She was an Ordinary Guest (Vanilla Town).

Her attempted escape was too little, too late. But you wonder if you’ve ever really been free since you walked the halls of Lupine Manor.
