The Good Serpent Orphanage
David D. Allee
At the turn of the century, deformed children of the Good Servant Orphanage hailed from all over the world, giving it a reputation for benevolence and good will - but appearances can be deceiving. Forced by an evil headmaster to forage for their own food or starve, roving bands of malformed children sneak out at night, led by twelve-year old Luther. Oblivious to how unforgiving a community can be towards those who look "different", the locals soon adopt a cruel moniker for the place... referring to it as the Good "Serpent" Orphanage and to all of its night scavengers as "monsters." When tensions build beyond the breaking point, a deliberately set fire brings a violent end to the horrors perpetuated upon the young innocents whom society abandoned to the custody of a wicked institution...and in so doing, also gives birth to the Zodiac serial killer while setting in motion a centuries long haunting. To this day, the violent young souls of the Good Serpent Orphanage are often seen in the area at night, terrorizing anyone unfortunate enough to cross their path after dark - making it one of the most haunted locales in northern California.
