This will get rapey eventually. Stay with me. And don't rape for real!

The other officers had warned Kara about the fog. They told her it was heavy and thick and clung to the air like a neverending curtain. She laughingly waved them off. She had seen fog before and wasn't frightened. Now that she was practically wading through it, she wished she had listened and headed home earlier. The sky was becoming dark and the street lights only dimly lit the empty sidewalks. There was a chill in the air. Her spandex top didn't offer much warmth so she crossed her arms over her chest as she made her way home. She didn't have much further to go.

"What a shitty night to go running." She muttered to no one in particular.

"He will come to..."

Kara stopped. She wondered to herself if the fog could make a person go crazy. She could have sworn she heard singing. When it didn't start again she shrugged and kept on.

"He will come to marry you..."

Kara spun around ready to attack. She wasn't sure what she thought she would see, but she was prepared for anything. Her right hand auto-piloted to her tight waistband. She felt her pepper spray. The air had a tension in it that she wished she could cut.

"He will come to marry you, only when you're cold and blue."

She sighed as she realized she was right next to the town's playground. She could now see the forms of two little bodies moving around on the jungle gym. She started to walk towards them.

"Surely their mothers expected them home. Especially with this fog..." She thought to herself.

"He will come to marry you, only when you're cold and blue. Look around you'll see the sights, visions will get worse at night, thirteen, thirteen days you'll have, then your soul is his to..."

"Girls!!" Kara called out. They looked rather angry that she had interrupted their song. "What are you doing out? Won't your parents be worried?"

"Probably," one of them answered. On closer inspection, Kara noted that the girls were twins. They also looked to be about seven years old.

"Well ladies, I'm a police officer and I would be more than happy to escort you to your home!" Kara told them with a smile on her face.

The twins accepted and told her that they didn't live far away. As luck would have it, they happened to live on the same street as Kara. The three girls started the very short journey home.

"What was that song you were singing?" Kara asked.

"I don't know what it's called. We just learned it in school." This girl seemed to be the only one who wanted to talk. Kara had learned that the chatty one was Emma and her sister was Jane.

"What's it about?" Asked Kara. "I don't think I've ever heard that one."

"It's about the man with the wedding ring." Emma began. "Everyone knows it! The ghost man gives a wedding ring to the most prettiest lady in town!! But...he's a ghost...so...she has to be dead before they can get married!"

Kara made a mental note to ask some of her coworkers about this awful story. She wanted to know more but they had just reached the girls' house. After introducing herself to the mother and watching the girls go inside, she headed down the street to her own house.

When she finally made it through the front door, she was exhausted. She slowly walked up the stairs to the bedroom. Her boyfriend, Tim, was at his desk playing a video game. She stood in front of the mirror and smiled. "Youngest police officer ever hired in Winesburg" sounded so good. Tim noticed her just as she was pulling off the sweaty sportsbra.

"How's the sexiest officer I've ever seen?" He asked.

"Ughhh." Was all Kara could work out at the moment. Tim seemed more interested in her recent near-nudity anyway. She ignored his gawking and pulled her shoes and socks off. Then she peeled off her shorts followed by the cute little black thong Tim had bought her a couple weeks ago.

"If you're heading for the shower, I'm coming too!" Tim said, standing up and tossing his headphones down at the same time. He followed her curvy ass to the bathroom and they climbed into the shower together.

After they were cleaned, dried, and ready for bed, they laid down. Kara's thoughts became blurry and she drifted into a nice, deep sleep. She had already forgotten about the song.

I thought you might lol.

Unfortunately the story is on a bit of a hold for the time being. I asked Algore a question about something continuity related last night and ended up needing to explain the whole plot for him to get what I was saying. Anyway, he loved it and kinda jumped in with me as a coauthor.

Once we have to whole story done, I'll post it. He was worried that because it's in the horror genre, the eeriness won't transfer to new installments.

I am hurrying though!!
