Come away with me to the lake…it’ll be romantic,” that’s what Josh begged. I agreed to go with him, believing he was trying to make things work, but I never should have listened. The lake cabins were cozy and romantic, the lake picturesque, but the communal dining hall is where things turned.The cook looked like something from the Twilight Zone and the food smelled like something from Swamp Thing. I couldn’t eat, but Josh and the others did. And then they started arguing; Josh started yelling. Then they all dropped dead. I got the hell out and haven’t looked back.

  1. I missed the title on my hurry to get to the story, so I wasn’t alerted to the probably outcome. Glad she had better sense than to eat. This was probably a summer camp for teens the rest of the time and we all know what happens to teens at summer camps–very, very bad things!!

    Oh yes, I missed the title too. Very sinister, very wise of your narrator to skip the menu. Well done,

  3. You told the story very well. I would of got the heck out of there too.

  4. Don’t ever eat things that smells like the swamp thing, good choice it seems.

    Smart woman! I’m assuming it was a woman 😉 Woman are so much more intelligent when it comes to edible food!

  6. Romance, summer camp, never a good idea, Hope she ran far and fast!

  9. Lake Arsenic…not the idyllic name for a summer camp. Glad she had the good sense to not eat and ran.
    Shalom,
