Narrator: Tonight we bring you the final chapter of The Mothman Cometh. When last we left off, three mischievous kids were crossing a railroad bridge when they were beset on by a terrible beast swooping down from the skies.

Mary: It's flying right towards us! Jump!

(Mothman screeches)

Mary: That was close!

Buddy: Steve, Mary, get off that bridge! (Train horn) The train's coming! The train!

(Train horn)

Steve: Oh no! Grandpa says that the Mothman is a sign of bad things. I bet that means the train is gonna derail!

Mary: Or maybe the bad thing is that the train is gonna squash us like June bugs! What are we gonna do?

Steve: We can't jump, and it's too late to run. The train's almost here.

Buddy: Look out! (train horn) That thing's coming back!

(Train horn) (Mothman screeches)

Mary: Ahh! Steve, the Mothman's gonna let fly!

Steve: Hang on, Mary! Buddy, help us!

(Mothman screeches) (train track rattles) (flashback tune)

Mary: The last thing I remember is the Mothman snatchin' me and Steve, just before the train ran us over. Sheriff, I know it sounds crazy, but I reckon it saved my life.

Johnson: Well, now that's quite a tale, Mary.

Mary: You do believe me don't you? I swear it as hell that it all happened, just ask Buddy and Steve! They'll tell you the same story! Go on, ask 'em!

Johnson: Er, uh, hm, Mr. and Mrs. Scarberry, I- can I speak to you outside a moment?

Dad: Of course. Sweetheart, we'll be right back. You just get some rest.

Mom: Nurse, could you please get her something to eat?

Nurse Handy (in robot French accent): Right away Madame! One Salisbury steak with extra gravy coming up! We'll have you right as rain in no time, mon Chéri!


Mr. Scarberry: What do you think Sheriff? Mary's not one to fib, but... that story.

Johnson: All I know is that she was found unconscious by the river without so much as a scratch.

Mom: So then you think she was telling the truth about all this... Mothman saving her and those boys?

Johnson: Uh, well, that's the thing about it. Ma'am, those other boys weren't as lucky as Mary. The grim truth is that both were found dismembered way up on top of a tree.

(dramatic music starts)

Dad: On top of a... You don't think?

(Wings flapping)

Mom: What's that sound? It sounds like a...

(Mothman screeches)

Mary: Ahh! Help!

Mom: Oh, Mary!

(Kicking sound)

Sheriff: The window, they smashed right in.

Dad: The nurse is torn to pieces too!

Nurse Handy (in robot French accent): Right as rain, right as rain! (zapping)

Mom: Mary, she's gone! What's happened to my sweet Mary? Do something, sheriff! Do something!

(Mary screaming) (Mothman screeches) (dramatic music)

Narrator: In another chilling reminder, dear listeners, to always watch your back, your left, and your right. Be careful of your step, the ground beneath your feet, but most of all don't forget to watch the skies above. For you never know what frightful terror is lurking overhead. Be sure to tune in next week for another thrilling chapter of Tales from the West Virginia Hills!
