Derry had always been a strange town; from the witch coven that ran it in the 1800s, the harpy infestation in 1926, that small period of time around the 40s when their town was actually overrun with godling creatures, it goes on. Derry’s had no shortage of supernatural experiences. Apparently, that’s not the case anywhere else, but as unusual and frankly, dangerous, their town was, no one ever seemed to leave.
Eddie Kaspbrak was born, raised, and making a life in Derry, just like he always promised himself he wouldn’t. He tried, he really did. Moved to a whole other state and everything, but after a month he couldn’t stand how boring the whole thing seemed. Living in Derry was a gamble on your life every day, but at least it was entertaining.
The latest disturbance, according to a group of game hunters in the area, has been a werewolf the size of a mack truck.
“Ain’t hurt ‘nybody far as I know, but the farmers are gettin’ real upset 'bout their livestock.”
Eddie put his fork down, the clink of silverware loud in the near-empty diner. “Where’d you see it?”
The hunter who spoke turned around and inspected him. “By the clearin’ behind the quarry. I wouldn’t go out there if I was you, boy. Skinny thing like you-’ll be nothin’ but a light snack to that beast.”
Eddie forced himself to laugh. “Yeah, no of course not. I’m not an idiot.”
He was an idiot.
