The vicarious woods were alive today as 13 hooded figures were moving in a large circle around a pile of woods on fire placed in a star formation chanting dubious hymns.
Tied naked to a black log inside the five pointed star of the burning woods, a pregnant woman yelled for help. The symbol drawn with blood on her protruding belly suggested an ancient cult that was being performed to conjure the Satan.
The hooded figures came to a halt as they noticed the shaking ground inside the star and while they continued to chant, giant claws embraced the woman and pulled her inside the realms of the underworld silencing her shrieking.
The giant horned figure that arose from the ground was bathed in blood and as it bellowed opening up its fuming eyes, they knew that the offering had been accepted by the Satan.
