A short story about two boys who discover a hidden beach and the evil deadly secrets that lie within its soft white grains of sand.

4 out of 5 Stars – I like mine with a twist!

4 out of 5 Stars – Creepy tale.



Seth rolled his eyes, and tried to ignore his friend. He tried to zone into the happiness he should have been feeling, and that’s when something caught his eye, something behind him, something on the wall beside the entrance to this beach. “Junior! Get over here! Get over here now!”

“Man, you’re a buzz kill. Most twelve year olds shouldn’t worry this much.”

“If I turn thirteen, I’ll remind myself of that. Now get your ass over here now!”

Junior let out a sigh and walked over to Seth. “I’m here. What is so damn important?”

“The wall,” Seth replied, turning Junior’s face, and pointing him towards it.

If Junior could have pissed cold yellow ice, he would have, at that moment.

On the wall, was a skull and crossbones symbol, blood red, dripping and running like it was bleeding or freshly painted?

Below this skull and crossbones there was a message:

‘let yea who pass here be warned, this be the devil’s virgin sand, he be the beast that walk amongst the ground, he be the beast inside the grains, life is in the sand, if you be here when the moon is full, use the seas water, mix it with the sand, whatever is created, next night, the devil’s life it will have’

After Seth read this message out loud, a mouth appeared on the red skull. The mouth opened up revealing large sharp teeth and a black empty portal. Two red eyes appeared in the empty black eye sockets a second later, and then this symbol laughed at them, laughed an evil sinister laugh.
