There was a girl who had an illness and was bed-ridden for the majority of her life. She was recently diagnosed to die within the next couple of months so her parents decided to spend as much time with her as they could before her time came. They decided that the best thing was to go camping at a local site for a little bit since the daughter was stuck in the hospital for so long.

On their way there, the girl was quiet as usual and laid in the back while the parents talked amongst themselves. When they finally reached their destination, they pitched the tent, unpacked everything and started a campfire. The mother was constantly filming the area and her daughter while the father went out for more firewood. It was getting dark when he came back, but he suddenly heard the mother scream so he rushed over to discover that his daughter was standing on her feet and was doing a wild, erratic ‘dance’ before she suddenly dropped dead.

After all the funeral processions and grieving subsided, the parents wanted to see the video the mother recorded on that very night. They put the tape in the player and began to watch. At first it just showed the mother looking at the scenery and random animals that passed by in the distance, but as the time frame skipped, it jumped to when she was inside the tent with the daughter as she stood up and began to jerk around.. But there was something wrong. It first was in the corner of their eyes but as they replayed the scene, their horror became more and more real.

The entire time the daughter was ‘dancing’, there was a ghastly white hand latched onto the top of her head.

      I’d prefer if you guys didn’t use my insides as your temporary shelter, but if it can’t be avoided at least keep the dog out.

    I don’t find this very creepy at all.

    If a thing is to be supernaturally frightening, it’s important to give the smallest of inklings as to why the event is happening.

    Me like. Very sudden though. My only criticism is that it could have used more build-up.

    meh, it didn’t do it for me. But then again, it is the middle of the day. If it were night time, I’m sure it would’ve done something for me, but it just didn’t. CURSE YOU SUNLIGHT!! PS. Nice play on the fear of going in the woods.

    I liked this. Short, weird, and ended with a punch. You don’t always need everything spread out before you, completely explained…

    God, the ending was creepy. I shivered.

    Oooh! That was genuinely creepy. Finally broke the steak of shabby pastas of late. Nice and short too.

    The “White Hand” can be found in old English lore. It is one of the many traditional harbingers of death (banshees, birds, etc.).
