The Curse of the Weathered Book

The Curse of the Weathered Book

A Horror Story
by Dove Windsor

Whilst investigating the death of a local hairdresser, an optimistic shopkeeper called Clarke Smith uncovers a legend about a supernaturally-cursed, weathered book circulating throughout Scotland. As soon as anyone uses the book, he or she has exactly 21 days left to live.

The doomed few appear to be ordinary people during day to day life, but when photographed, they look distorted. A marked person feels like a brown owl to touch.

Clarke gets hold of the book, refusing to believe the superstition. A collage of images flash into his mind: a fake horse balancing on a cosy hairdresser, an old newspaper headline about a golfing accident, a hooded gerbil ranting about toes and a drinking well located in an industrial place.

When Clarke notices his lips have owl-like properties, he realises that the curse of the weathered book is true and calls in his son, a teacher called Simon Ramsbottom, to help.

Simon examines the book and willingly submits himself to the curse. He finds that the same visions flash before his eyes. He finds the fake horse balancing on a cosy hairdresser particularly chilling. He joins the queue for a supernatural death.

Clarke and Simon pursue a quest to uncover the meaning of the visions, starting with a search for the hooded gerbil. Will they be able to stop the curse before their time is up?

Created on 30th August 2021.
