That was thirty years ago. I've had a lot of time to cool off since then. Yes it's me, I'm Vin. And I'm not back from the dead again, no quite the contrary, I'm what you might call a restless spirit, doomed to wander the Earth for the rest of eternity. It's not all bad, I get to go where ever I want to and nobody could see me, and there is a lot of other restless sprits to talk to, so it's not like I'll ever get board. And having my body out here in the country, nobody bothers me, living that is. The only person alive to ever come see my grave is Casey. She came every Saturday for ten years until she took her own life. Now she mostly hangs out with me in the afterlife. You may wonder what happened to the spirits of Frank and the other people I killed. Well they crossed over to the other side. Some people guess Hell but I personally don't believe in that stuff.
Well one day I walking through town saying hi to all the dead people when I found myself near the house where it all took place. There I over heard some of the living talking about my past.
One boy was saying to the other three in his group, "Yeah, I heard that this Vin kid killed like fifteen people in that house right there with a chainsaw. And after he was done the police chased him to a river where they blew him up with chemicals."
Another one said, "Well I heard that it was only nine but the chainsaw was actually attached to his hand. And when he was done he killed himself. By burring himself alive out in the country somewhere."
The other three looked very skeptical at first but then boy said, "No really I can prove it. He did have a chainsaw for a hand."
"How" asked the other boys?
"By digging up his body," replied the first.
I didn't hear that, tell me I didn't just hear that. Those little punks are going to dig up my body. I think not, not if I have anything to say about it.
"Yeah my brother did some research and found some old documents about where they buried him."
"You're shitting us."
"I shit you not. Come on lets go get some shovels and get there." And with that they got in there cars and left.
"I have got to get back to the grave and fast. There's no telling what those little freaks will do to my body. I swear if anything happens to my body I'll, I'll, I don't know what I'll do but it won't be nice." I said to myself as I was using my spirit speed to get to the grave fast.
When I had gotten there, the four boys had already started digging. I tried and tried to get them to stop, but to no prevail. See they couldn't hear me and I couldn't touch them. So I just stood there pacing and shouting for thirty minuets until finally someone else showed up.
"Hold up guys,' said one boy who I had learned whose name was Steve, 'I hear someone coming."
As he was saying this a car pulled up and a really nerdy kid came out.
"Guys I don't think you should be doing this" said the kid. This kid was about 5'6 and probably weighed about 130.
"Never mind guys its just Dip shit," said Steve.
"My name is Sibdit and I really don't think you should be doing this."
"Your damn right they shouldn't," I said aloud.
"What was that" said Sibdit looking around.
"What was what," asked Steve?
"That, that voice,"
"I didn't hear anything. Damn you're even weirder than I thought you were Dip shit."
"Now seriously guys I don't think you should be here"
"And what are you going to do about it," asked another kid named Trent as he climbed out of the hole they were digging.
"I'll tell my uncle"
"No please don't tell your uncle," said Brian sarcastically as he climbed out of the hole.
"You know he's right, maybe we should leave,' said Steve, 'after all it's getting pretty late. We'll come back tomorrow."
And with that the four boys: Steve, Brian, Trent, and Evan, threw their shovels in the back of a truck, got in, and drove off. But not before pushing the Sibdit kid into the hole they had dug.
After climbing out of the hole and brushing himself off, Sibdit got in his car and drove off. And I was alone again.
I sat there next to the open hole in the ground wondering what to do when a strange bright light appeared in front of me. And out of it stepped my old buddy Frank. I was very shocked and amazed. I didn't know what he wanted so I stood my ground.
"Easy there killer,' Frank said, 'I'm not here to mess with you. I've been sent on a mission to have you do something."
"What," I asked?
"Kill some people."
"Those four little bastards that were just here."
"Might I ask why?"
"In five days they will fully dig up your body and prove once and for all that you and your chainsaw hand really existed."
"So why is that important?"
"Well if they prove that you came back from the dead, then the scientists of today will try to find out how you did it."
"So, if they do that then people will stop dying, and if people stop dying then my boss won't have any business."
"So what can I do? I can't touch them or even talk to them for that matter."
"My boss has given you and one of the living the ability to communicate, and you could posses him."
"For how long?"
"As long as you need."
"Yes, one, he has to agree to it."
"Ok, what is the living person's name?"
"Sibdit, but people around here call him-"
"Dip shit, I know, I've seen him around."
"Great, well I think that's all. Have fun and don't forget you can only posses him for one hour so don't waste it. Later." And with that he stepped into the light again and disappeared.
"Super." I then walked back to town to try to find this Sibdit kid again.
After a few hours of walking around, searching all the strip clubs, bars, and cheap hotels I finally found him in the library. I walked in and saw him reading at a table.
"I'm supposed to kill four guys with that scrawny kid. Man, this is going to be tough."
I didn't know if he could see me as well as hear me so I waited until hi got up to find out. He got up and started to walk around the halls of books, and as he turned a corner I jumped out, looked him strait in the eyes, and said "Hi Dip shit."
He screamed and fell back. "Shhhh, c'mon this is a library." I said then ducked back in another hall.
He got up and started walking around looking very embarrassed. He got another book and sat back down. He looked around, probably for me, then started reading again.
I walked back into the main room he was sitting following a very hot girl thrusting my hips at her. He looked at me with wide eyes as if he couldn't believe that I was doing that unopposed. Then the woman I was following suddenly turned around and walked right through me. That made the kid pass out.
When he woke up a couple minuets later I was lying on the table in front of him and he started freaking out. He got the shhhhh noise from a lot of people to which he pointed right at me to which they flipped him off.
"Come with me,' I said, 'I need to talk to you in private."
I got off the table and walked out the door and he followed me. I walked over and got in the passenger door of his car and he got in the driver's seat.
"Go." I commanded. So he started the car and drove off.
"W-What are you," he asked?
"Sibdit my boy, I'm you new best friend."
"Who are you, and how do you know my name and what do you mean my new best friend and wh-?"
"Stop, First of all the name's Vin, secondly, well let me ask you something first, what do you think I am?"
"Are you a ghost?"
"Yes, I am, and nobody can see me or hear me but you."
"Because, I need your help."
"Help with what?"
"Help stopping some people from doing something that will probably destroy the afterlife."
"And how are we going to stop them."
"By killing them of course."
"I don't want to kill anyone or anything. And why should I help you anyway?"
"One you have to help because if you don't the afterlife will be such a bitch for you its not even funny. And two you won't have to kill anyone, well not really, when the time comes I'll do it."
"So all we got to do is kill them."
"Yes, what did you expect?"
"I don't know something with magic or something to destroy evil spirits."
"No, there is no evil spirits involved. Just four living humans like you that need to be killed."
"Who are the people that need killed? Do I know them?"
"Yeah, some friends of yours, Steve, Brian, Trent, and Evan."
"Well that's just great," Sibdit said sarcastically.
"What's wrong with that?"
"Those four are the best fighters in the whole town. They've even beaten up some adults. How do you expect us to beat them?"
"I have a few tricks up my sleeve. All I need you to do is get things ready."
"How do I get things ready" he asked?
"Well first I need you to pull over." And he did.
"Now,' I said, 'I need you to agree to do anything necessary to accomplish this mission."
"Now, this might hurt a little bit," I said then I jumped into his body. He squirmed around for a little bit, it looked like he was having spasms, then he passed out. He was only out for a couple of seconds. When he opened his eyes it was me looking out. I had gained control. I looked around, looked at my hands, looked at my body, felt my package, and scratched my ass.
"I'VE GOT A BODY," I screamed.
"I've got a body. I've got a body." And that is when I looked into the rear view mirror. The face that looked back wasn't my own, it was his. Then it spoke to me.
"WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO," asked the image of Sibdit?
"I just took control of you body."
"Why, I want it back."
"I did this to take care of business, and I only have partial control, which means you'll get it back, when I'm done. "
"Well ok, just don't do anything that will get me hurt or in trouble."
"Don't worry, I can be very discreet."
And with that I started the car back up and drove off. I went around town and picked up some supplies, axe, chain, lock, and lots of food. Sibdit was kind of mad that I was spending all of his money. I just ignored him and went back to his house and went strait up stairs totally ignoring his mom, dad, and little sister. I spent the rest of the night in his room planning what to do. Then his sister showed up at the door asking what I was doing so I got up and slammed the door in her face. His mother then came upstairs and got mad at me for slamming the door in the girl's face. I told her to fuck off and she grounded him. Sibdit was getting really mad at me for getting him in trouble. But I just ignored him because I had bigger plans.
The next day at school after scouting around for a little bit and set up the supplies then I met up with the boys, or actually they met up with me.
Steve and his friends pushed me up against the locker and said, "What were you thinking coming out there last night and messing with us?"
I said, "I just don't think you should be fucking with the dead."
"Well I'm fucking with you and dead is what you will be if you come out there again."
"How about first you get you damn hands off of me."
"And what if I don't what are you going to do tell you uncle, officer douche bag."
"No I'll do this." And with that I grabbed one of his hands and twisted until it made a popping sound and he was wincing in pain. His friends then pried me off of him and pushed me back.
"That's it Dip shit, your dead."
"And I got the perfect place. The science room on the other side of the school, its not used any more and nobody will bother us. You might as well bring your little gay buddies with you. You'll need all the help you could get," I said very evil like.
"You just signed your death warrant."
"I'll see you there." After school that day I waited in the science room for them to show up, and when the finally did I was ready for them. As soon as they stepped through the door, I slammed it shut, put the chain around it, and locked it.
"Whoa man you are so dead."
"No, YOU ARE," I said as I lunged towards them. But one got me from behind and threw me to the ground on the other side of the room. It was then I realized that Sibdit was to weak by himself to take on these guys so I decided to do something drastic.
I got up, brushed myself off, and stood up strait.
"Anything to say before we kill you" said Steve.
"Yes, just one,' I said, 'Sibdit I'm sorry but your not coming back."
And with that I kicked in the total possession. You couldn't really tell at first, but then I doubled over, and when I looked back up I had my real face.
"Holy shit, his face is different," yelled Brian
Then I started laughing as my legs stretched out and I grew to my normal size. I laughed even more as my torso grew to the size I was accustomed to. Then my right arm grew out to the size of arm the late Jason of thirty years ago had. And finally my left arm extend and muscled up from my shoulder to my elbow, then from my elbow to my wrist, and from my wrist the base of a chain saw, and out form that shot the blade, complete with chain.
"Oh shit, it's you," they all screamed in unison.
"That's right, and now you have to die for fucking with my grave." And having said that I charged the group. I first grabbed Trent's throat and sliced his belly open to let his guts spill out. After witnessing that the other three tried to get out, but to no prevail with the door being chained and all. Next I swung my arm around and cut both Brian and Evan in half at the same time.
"Now that leaves you," I said to Steve.
Steve looked around for something to fend me off with, but finding nothing he started to cry. Not wanting to see a grown man cry, I did the logical thing to do, which was cut his head in half through the eyes. With the job being done, I apologized once more for ending Sibdit's life ahead of schedule. I busted the door and ran through the school and into the parking lot where I got in the car and drove off into the distance. I don't know what I'm going to do with my new found life, but I'm sure it's going to be fun.
Or is it?
It probably is.
But you never know.
