Okay screw the last serial because I had no idea where it was going. This one I've actually more or less already written so I know it'll have a definite end, but I'll upload it in chapters for the sake of ease of reading and not having to write it all at once. Plus it actually has a title.

- It was the quiet hour in the rustic village of Clara Maria, with the silver moon looming in the sky. The only souls outside the comfort of their straw beds were the respected Dr. Mañera and his withdrawn assistant Eduardo, a man who had not been right of mind in over thirteen years, since the day the bandits rode through the village and devastated his family before his eyes. The illusion the doctor presented to the town of helping the lost soul with his constant presence could not be further from the truth, for Eduardo was there that evening to assist the good doctor once again in his late night activities.
Do you see why the good lord has delivered you into my arms, Eduardo? the doctor asked his accomplice as he watched the shovel strike the dirt once again. It is so that we can be the pioneers of a better tomorrow. Without us doing this God given task Eduardo, how many more would suffer unto a fate they truly did not deserve? he hung his head solemnly, taking off his hat in memory of the head.
Eduardo looked up at him from the hole he stood waist deep in, his dark brown eyes glazed over in the light of the moon reflected off a fresh tombstone. He said nothing, before returning to his work displacing the earth beneath him as the doctor had commanded. He would do whatever the doctor had commanded, so long as it kept the delirious voices clear from his mind.
Dont you see, Eduardo? Without us, the two of us, perpetuating these acts of the good lord up there, wed be but victims of a greater fate like the ones faced by your daughter not years ago. Did you want such a fate for your daughter? Eduardo dug faster. In time, Eduardo, you and I will know truly what the great God did in fact design ourselves for, and we shall prevent such a tragedy from reoccurring, I promise to you.
The spade ricocheted against a solid mass covered in earth: the funeral casket of a man who was once wealthy in life, now condemned to the eternal hellfire as the worms fed on the body whilst the soul endured a thousand torments.
Silence, Eduardo! the doctor ordered, hushing his own voice so as not to enter the unthinkable realm of hypocrisy. The window of the church remained dim and unlit, not a single sound breaking through the tension of the night as the critters of the dusk hunted afar for scraps of food whilst the minds of the day slept their slumber, the priest of the church amongst them. Not a single candle was lit to pierce the shadows, and reveal to the two in their God given task.
Dr Mañera let out a sigh of relief as his heart unclenched from inside his chest. Eduardo watched him with those motionless glazed eyes, his mind refusing to command the body without a word from the doctor. With a silent nod from the man who stood above him, he was on his hands and knees and cleaning the dirt from the casket.
Fetch a bag. Came the order from above, the doctor fixated on what the casket before him contained, teeth gritting into each other from the excitement growing inside. Dr Mañera jumped into the hole next to his assistant, his weathered brown trousers no stranger to the dirt, a fitting piece of apparel for their owner who maintained the towns most respected clinic.
The casket reeked of death even in its youth, parasites and vermins already working the body inside as the same sort of people had done in life. A frozen face stared into the doctors as Eduardo removed the last of the nails and pulled it open, recognising the man before him but not understanding his actions. The doctor covered his eyes with a pure white cloth, freshly prepared, removed from the cleanest pocket of his long coat. Forgive me, my friend. Dr. Mañera whispered, bowing his head to the solemn moment, as Eduardo returned with the bag in tow, ready to help him in the struggle of stealing the corpse to a new resting place.
Comment now, comment when it's done, whatever suits you. For once I'll upload from start to finish.
