ERA OF THE MUD MAN
It is aftermath of a million sins. It is the disgust and tragedy of elements. The frozen tears of the children left with the mess. It is the earth taking sweet revenge.
If anyone knew of this place deep outside in the blackest forest, he could have seen the forecast of horrors in the snowman’s acorn eyes. It could neither scream nor move but it could see its fate.

Nothing other than mocking him gets his classmates away from their video games. Until the day they decide to follow Dustin to his shrine.
