Buried deep in the swamps is a house that seems untouched by the decay and death surrounding it. A massive mansion that was once a plantation home sits on a hill, towering over you as you make your approach. Although Virgil Whitmore doesn’t need a reason to throw a lavish party, his daughter’s wedding provides everyone in town an excuse to gather, gossip and feast until the sun rises. You are amongst those drifting in as the sun descends.
The temperature begins to drop but the humidity hangs in the air like a suffocating web. The swamp stirs from its sleep and begins its song of creaking, swaying trees and the shrill screeches and cries of the local wildlife as the liquor continues to flow. You find yourself being pulled right into the heart of the party. Do you join the writhing bodies in the ballroom trying to escape the fire and worries and sorrows buried deep? Or do you stay outside and try and let the cool light of the moon wash over you and drag the thick, wet heat out of you while the swamp cries out to you in its long, sad song?
A modern Southern Gothic story with very little supernatural happenings. Any nature, race, social status, sexual orientation and/or health is accepted as long as they are human. No ghosts, vampires, fairies, werewolves, etc.
