Cries

Posted 2 years ago by Cha Yang under Mysteries & Unexplained

Sorry for the long absence, but I'm finally back. Hopefully, this story will enlightened your day; it took me forever to track all involved people and had them tell me their side of the story- which contributed to one final piece. Enjoy!

The following story is put together by several people who used to live in the same village; the "involved" names has been changed to common names of the USA.

On the hills of Vietnam, one can see the beautiful horizon of the Earth's mountainous biomes. The sun would rise, and with it, a magnificent purplish setting appeared. The shadows withered away, and the light swept the small town clean of darkness. With the absence of darkness, the villagers awoke from their huts; only to find, that someone has died during the middle of the night.

Uncles Bill and Ted were the first ones to have found the corpse. The corpse laid at the entrance of the village, and died facing down on it's stomach. Ted turned the corpse over, only to see that it's faced had been severely mutilated and not recognizable, most likely by a hungry animal of some sort. An alert was instantly signaled, signaling everyone to the site. All the villagers made sure each of their family member were accounted for; at the end, no one reported any missing person, and the corpse remained anonymous. Aunt Carol stated that a proper burial be given to the corpse so that no ill omen would come of it; however, not everyone was agreeable. The concern: to properly bury someone, a ceremony must be held; that ceremony would last up to 3 days. Who would fork out that amount of money? Not to mention supplying all the food during the 3 days for a whole village? On top of that, a casket was also required to be built, and monks needed to be hired, and finally, a burial site was required. At the end, no one person or group raised to the responsibility; it was agreed that the corpse should just remained where it had fallen.

Uncle Michael and Aunt Michelle lived right across from the corpse; they were not too keen of the idea of walking out of their house and seeing a dead person lay in front of them- slowly decomposing. The elderly couple urged some of the young males in the village to help move the dead body to the side of the road; but no one volunteered. Michael and Michelle ended up dragging the carcass to the side of the road.

3 days has passed since then, and Michelle was struck with a high fever. Michael contacted Bill, Ted, and Carol to see if there was anything they can do for Michelle. Everyone came over and started discussing a plan of care. Carol mentioned that a monk near by might be able to help, and a Shaman might be able to heal her illness. Bill went and contacted Shaman Joe, while Ted volunteered to contact Monk William. Joe lives inside the village and saw the dead corpse several days ago; William lives in the temple with the other monks, which takes several days to get to, and knew nothing of the mystery corpse. As soon as Joe walked into the house, he observed Michelle for her signs and symptoms; he pulled Bill aside and talked to him: "Bill, is it just me, or has Michelle lost severe weight?" Bill responded, "It's true, I think she has lost several pounds in the last 3 days? Is that even possible?" After more observation, Joe asked Bill "Don't say anything to Michael, but don't you think Michelle is resembling that dead corpse we saw?" Bill freaked out, and walked outside of the house. With proper preparations, Joe started his diagnosis; however, he told everyone that there was nothing wrong with Michelle spiritually. Her spirits are high and intact, this is not a job for Shamans, but doctors. With that, Joe went and talked to Michelle, who seemed to barely held on to life. Joe, Michelle's close cousin and a Shaman, held her right hand to support her in her sitting posture; they spoke late into the night, then everyone left.

On the hills of Vietnam, one can see the beautiful horizon of the Earth's mountainous biomes. The sun would rise, and with it, a dull and bloody red setting appeared. The shadows withered away, and the light swept the small town clean of darkness. With the absence of darkness, the villagers awoke from their huts; only to find, that Michelle has died during the middle of the night.

A burial ceremony was taken place that same day and the whole village helped out. For 3 days and 2 nights, the villagers stood up with a depressed Michael. He would not eat, nor drink; soon after, Michael became deathly sick too. Not long after Michelle's passing, Michael was also put into a casket and buried next to her. The whole village cried for their lost, and wish them luck in their next life.

...

On the hills of Vietnam, one can see the beautiful horizon of Earth's mountainous biomes. The sun would rise, and with it... another death struck the people of the village.

Not even 9 days since Michael's death, Shaman Joe joined the burial ground and was put to rest. The people of the village became scared. People started accusing evil spirits and plead for a proper burial of the mystery corpse. The villagers finally agreed that it was an ill omen not to properly dispose of the mystery corpse, so a small group went and buried the remains that still laid on the side of the road. Others sought Shamans to ward off the evil entities in their house and around the village... but every Shaman that came by gave the same diagnosis, this is not the doing of evil entities, it must be their fate. Desperate for help, many villagers started to place all kinds of superstitious artifacts around the village to ward off evil spirits.

...

On the hills of Vietnam, no one no longer saw the beautiful horizon of Earth's mountainous biomes. The sun would rise, and with it... more death struck the people of the village.

A once renown village that prospered off of rice and lumber, has now shrunken to death and poverty. As the village began to slowly shrink, cries were heard all day and all night. Not a single day went by that people did not cry. Much of the villager's wealth were consumed by the increasing burial ceremonies, and many villagers begun to give up hope. Livestock were continued to be offered to the dead to release the grudge on their village; spiritual money were burnt and offered to all those that died to help cleanse the living...

...

On the hills of Vietnam, only the stench of death awaited unsuspecting passerby. When the sun rises, the rotting bodies would collapsed into further decomposition...

Not even 2 weeks since Michelle's death, the village population decreased from 280 to 130. Most the elderly and infants has died off; the remaining survivors lived on only to die another day. Corpses were no longer buried, but stacked on top of one another down the riverbed. The fever continued to haunt the survivors, and many more would die. Monk William finally reached the dead village; however, he was not notified by Ted; instead, he came from hearing rumors and stories of a haunted village. With several other monks, Monk William cleansed each villager with their enchantments. One by one, the monks visited each surviving household and blessed their house and soul; one by one, the villagers continued to die. Finally, William became feverish, and called back all the other monks. William concluded the village is not dying from evil entities, but a contamination of infectious diseases...

...

On the hills of Vietnam, Death continues to lurk the village and consumed prosperously. When the sun finally rose, Monk William was laid to rest.

The monks contacted outside help, and finally, the contamination was quarantined by Vietnam Health Officials. Out of the initial 280 residents, only 60 survived the outbreak. Out of the involved relatives, only Aunt Carol survived. The first to die were the ones who came into contact with patient zero, the mystery corpse. Ted never made it to the temple as he was the first one who made contact; most likely, he died during his travel to the monk's temple. Unfortunately, no elderly and children survive the outbreak.

No one knows the mysterious visitor who died at the doorsteps to the village. Its almost as if that person knew what he was infected with and was probably running away from his infected village, only to contaminate an adjacent village. In other words, his previous village was infected with the dreadful disease, and he came running for help; however, he died and exposed the disease to new hosts. The disease caused flesh to rot rapidly, thus patient zero did not have a face. Initially, the villagers thought it was a hungry dog or something that may have eaten the mystery visitor's face off; but as more and more people died, they all had one thing in resemblance- rapid rotting of the face, and usually in the areas furthest away from the heart (head, hands, feet...).

I'm glad you enjoyed the story; but do know that real people did die from this event. As of now, I am researching a new lead, and will probably post another story soon.

My closest guess would be that the villagers suffer from Necrotizing Faccitis. The person becomes ill withing 2-3 days, and the symptoms becomes fatal after about 4-5 days if untreated with surgery.

Scary. I believe that evil spirits can cause disease outbreaks. If this actually took place I wonder where did that corpse come from and who was it? shocked horror

This did indeed took place in reality, and no one knows the whereabouts for patient zero; he showed up and died at their foot steps. I know the style of this story makes it seem fake, but I like to write and make it not so repetitive; that's why this story has a poetic repetition to it
