New Darkness In The East takes place in Japan following an event known as ‘the skyfall’ in which a mysterious object has fallen from the sky in the middle of the night, fluctuating and disturbing energy sources throughout all of Japan. In the following days paranormal incidents appear to be on a drastic new rise. An ominous new atmosphere as fallen over Japan. Restless spirits have taken terrifying new insect-like forms and behaviors, they have become stronger, their presence more widespread, their curse amplified and more dangerous than ever before. The backstories will focus on the life, their death, the original ghost legend, and lastly the new amplified curse of each new individual ghost presented. This take on Japanese horror combines the two great fears of ghosts and that of insects. Combining both of these unpleasantries into the creation of several new ghosts and stories of varying length inspired by the Japanese horror culture surrounding ghosts and urban legends.
Below I will include a very short section from the full story about the new curse of this entity:
New Darkness In The East – Since the day of the skyfall event, summoning Hakano has now become a very dangerous game throughout the schools of Japan... Students who dare to knock three times on the third stall in the girl's bathroom before asking "are you there, Hanako-san" will now no longer hear a response. Instead they and anyone in the vicinity of the bathroom will suddenly hear a slight buzzing before becoming light headed and disoriented. Feeling sick to their stomach and the urge to vomit many will open the stall door to only become face to face with the corrupted version of Hanako-san. The corrupted ghost of Hanako will hold on to them as a swarm and large larval worms that has built up around the ghost will attack whoever Hakano faces and drain them of their blood. Anyone else trapped in the vicinity will face a similar fate as Hakano emerges from the stall and corners them. After Hakano has been summoned into a school in this state the school becomes permanently cursed. Small flies that seem to manifest out of nowhere leaving small bite marks on students who have used the bathroom. This bite causing many of them to become very sick or even die in some cases in a fashion similar to that of an overdose victim.
Full story to be told likely in a future book...
