A mysterious letter has recently turned up at an Illinois psychiatrist’s house, crudely packaged within a large brown envelope. The psychiatrist, Dr Samuel Loomis, only needed a few seconds to realise who it was from, as he recognised the child-like writing on the parcel. He opened it up and read the letter in trepidation, and his initial response was one of surprise, as it was a very clear message about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and the recipient was also aware of the current lock down situation, urging people to stay safe. Dr Loomis’s surprise turned to fear. He knew the letter came from his patient Michael Myers, and knew he had to spread the word about it, but he didn’t know how he was able to send it from where he’s being held, Smith’s Grove Sanitarium. He had so many questions and fears, so initially went to the cops about it, but was told it must have been from a deranged fan of Michael. He then turned to me for help, so I swam to Illinois (again, due to the restrictions on flights etc) to interview him in his office.

TDJJ: “Dr Loomis, I read your story, and how the local police have just brushed this off. What makes you certain that the letter is genuinely from Michael Myers?”

SL: “The writing is like a child’s writing. Michael wouldn’t have been allowed a pen and some paper for many years. He can make anything a weapon. So he’s not been able to improve his writing since he was six. There’s errors in the spelling, grammar and very messy all over. All this points to the recipient to be pure evil and unable to write correspondence properly.”

TDJJ: “I read the letter when it got published in the local press, and it looks genuine enough in my eyes. Since it was printed, have you had any new responses from the police?”

SL: “No, the fools. They don’t want to hear his name again, after all he’s did to this place. They want to see him buried! But Michael’s insidious intent is there in his childish writing for all to see. He’s planning an escape!”

TDJJ: “Do you think so? He sounds genuinely concerned about what’s going on outside his walls.”

SL: “Not likely. He’s more concerned about it getting into the Sanitarium, affecting his chances of wreaking more havoc on this town once again.”

TDJJ: “How do you think he got the letter to you?”

SL: “Only he knows. I didn’t think they’d even have a postal service available for those types of people in there.”

TDJJ: “But thinking about it, just the notion of Michael showing emotion regarding the events outside his walls in the tone of his letter, can be seen as progress in his cognitive development, surely?”

SL: “He’s using this situation for his own preservation. The reason he wants people to stay safe indoors is so he can finish them off on Halloween night, at least the ones who live in Haddonfield and surrounding areas. That’s his M.O.”

TDJJ: “Have you heard from Laurie since this letter was published?”

SL: “I haven’t yet. I don’t know where she lives. She’s probably self-isolating somewhere and tooling up waiting for HIM to come home.”

TDJJ: “Well, April’s here now, which means Halloween is still months away. Do you think there’s any chance of Michael fooling everyone and escaping early?”

SL: “Yes, I’m aware it’s April Fools Day, and though Michael seems to like some traditions, there’s no evidence of him celebrating this particular date.”

TDJJ: “So what’s your next move?”

SL: “I remain vigilant. I’ll phone the cops again, but will give it a few days. I’m left on hold for ages, which I guess is understandable right now. All going well, by the time Halloween is upon us, they’ll have the resources to deal with Michael when he inevitably breaks out and heads back home to kill again.”

Hi, I'm from Stockport, Greater Manchester England. My plan on my blog is to hone my creative writing and write a post every day this year. It sounds daunting, and I'm sure things will evolve over time. Let me know what you think about my writing - any tips, useful websites and things like that would be quite lovely. Thanks for reading!
